Nike unveils the new Free Flyknit and the Free Hyperfeel

by Ben Hobson

Nike Free Flyknit

Nike has unveiled four new innovations at the company’s global headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, including two brand new running shoes.

The two new running shoes are the Nike Free Flyknit and Nike Free Hyperfeel, along with two new apparel technologies, Aeroloft and Dri-FIT Knit.

The new products are designed to enhance runners’ natural abilities and were guided by Nike’s #NatureAmplified design ethos, an approach that is focused on designing for the body in motion and fueled by scientific data and athlete insights.

Here's what Nike have to say about their new products -

"The Nike Free Flyknit is the fusion of two of Nike’s most iconic footwear technologies — the compressive Nike Flyknit upper and the flexible Nike Free outsole. The Nike Free Flyknit upper features zoned performance mapping and a second-skin fit. The shoe provides the benefits of natural motion and a snug, supportive fit in a single shoe."

"Designed to feel like an extension of the body by minimizing layers between the foot and the ground, the Nike Free Hyperfeel delivers a natural motion sensation for the runner. A drop-in insole made from Lunarlon foam allows the foot to have direct contact with Lunarlon cushioning. The ultra-thin waffle outsole uses strategically placed waffle pistons for grip and feel, allowing the foot to get closer to the ground."

And for the apparel they say this -

"Nike Aeroloft technology also debuted in the ultra-light Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest, designed to keep runners warm and comfortable in cooler conditions. Insulating down has been combined with precision ventilation that allows heat to escape the body so athletes stay dry."

"Dri-FIT Knit is an ultra-soft, lightweight fabric engineered to help athletes maintain optimal performance temperature in a variety of conditions. The technology employs visibly different knit patterns to aid breathability, while seamless construction ensures a smooth fit free of distraction."

How do you know this is spam - it could be a genuine forumite who has been a member since 2003 but has never posted before and he has finally plucked up the courage to come on and engage us in witty and informative banter - and this is how we treat him.

Shame on you
