Notable Features

With their striking features and a one-of-a-kind look, these Nike sneakers could be impossible not to get noticed in a crowd of minimal-looking, bulky, or classic sneakers. Inspired by the Dualtone Racer shoe, this Woven iteration displays bold woven stitching details across both medial and lateral sides that extend into forefoot.

Nike Dualtone Racer Woven History

Nike, as one of the leading sports brands, is known for its countless performance-focused footwear that athletes and regular consumers continue to patronize across the globe. The brand prides itself with top-of-the-line technologies and innovations that further enhance its lineup of footwear, both performance- and lifestyle-based.

One of Nike’s most promising and well-received running shoes is the Nike Flyknit Racer. It launched in February 2012 during the London Olympics, highlighting Nike’s Flyknit technology on the upper for a lighter and breathable fit. The Flyknit Racer's triumph eventually results in more and more variations and new Nike shoe models that took inspiration from the classic runner silhouette. The Nike Dualtone Racer is one example.

The Nike Dualtone Racer is Nike’s answer to a lifestyle-based counterpart of the Flynit Racer. It carries similar features as the latter, except that the upper is made of a two-tone breathable mesh material instead of Flyknit. The shoe released on July 6, 2017.

But Nike did not stop there. In 2018, the Dualtone Racer is further re-engineered into a whole new shoe model that still resembles the original even with the added design tweaks. Came the Nike Dualtone Racer Woven – a suede-based Dualtone Racer with distinguished woven stitching detail across the medial and lateral sides that extend into forefoot.

Like its predecessor, it features a dual-density midsole for lightweight cushioning, a webbed rubber outsole for durability and traction, and a lace-up closure for a secure and lockdown fit. Several colorways have been released since then, including but not limited to Vachetta Tan, Moon Particle (beige), Rust Pink, and Black. Each pair originally retails for $120.

Additional Info

  • Perforations are featured on the toe for enhanced breathability and comfort.
  • The dual-density foam midsole doubles as an outsole for lighter shoe weight and improved durability.
  • The thin web rubber sole provides traction.
  • Tonal Nike brandings are embroidered on the sides, tongue, and heel loop tab.
  • The Nike Dualtone Racer Woven is customizable via NIKEiD.
