Nike has made Tokyo Olympics trainers... but will not release them

The Olympics is over and you've got the blues really bad, because now you're watching repeats of Mrs Brown's Boys, which apparently you all love.

But wait! Nike offers its hopeful hand and an exciting glance into the future with a limited edition pair of Flyknit Racers in preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics! However, the company then kicks you back down to the ground, because you'll never be able to get your hands on them and feet in them, as Nike is only making 100 pairs and will not be releasing them to the general public.

These extremely rare trainers are crafted from Flyknit technology, with an upper that's hand dyed with Japanese indigo, an ancient fabric treatment paying homage to the country.

There's also text written in the Japanese writing system that reads 'Katakana', sitting alongside the regular Nike branding.

The release date is never because life is cruel...
