The flyknit fabric from Nike
The Flyknit technology was developed by Nike based on surveys of runners. The desire for a shoe which gave the wearer a no-shoe feel was the driving force here. The special structure was developed in a four-year process, it sits like a sock, tight around the foot of the wearer. This creates a natural and free wearing feeling. Flyknit technology is a product of dedicated collaboration between programmers, engineers and designers. The result is a material that provides support for the foot, is worn as slowly as possible, and yet is flexible and respiratory-active. With all these more functional requirements, however, the optics were not left out.
