Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock. Nike embarked on a four-year mission with teams of programmers. engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support. flexibility and breathability all in one layer was refined. The result is a featherweight. formfitting and virtually seamless upper. This unprecedented precision maximizes performance while reducing material waste by an average of 60% compared to traditional cut and sew. saving millions of pounds of material from reaching landfills.
Nike Free OriginsAfter learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot. three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless. similar to bare feet. The team spent four years studying the biomechanics of runners' feet in motion. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle. pressure and toe position. allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
