Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners craving 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, form-fitting and virtually seamless upper.
By using a precise knit construction process that integrates stretch and support for a more exact fit, The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ is PRECISION ENGINEERED.
Ultra-light Nike Flyknit thread creates a single-layer upper that eliminates overlays, reduces weight and minimizes waste, making it LIGHT. YEARS. AHEAD of the rest of the shoe industry.
In the quest to deliver the perfect fit and performance, Nike Flyknit has been developed, tested and worn on the world stage by elite runners. TESTED. PROVEN results show it can handle any challenge.
The knitted construction process minimizes weight and waste by using only what’s needed. The upper is made entirely of polyester yarn that’s fed into a proprietary knitting machine, creating little to no waste so the shoe is incredibly efficient to produce…You can get more benefits from LESS WASTE.
