Nike Flyknit Racer - Orange
Nike Flyknit is probably the most exciting and innovative shoe to be released for years. Four years in the making and widely regarded as one of the best inventions of 2012 , the Flyknit has been precision engineered and designed around four design philosophies – performance, lightness, formfitting and sustainability.
Looking at the shoe, it’s not hard to notice that Nike have clearly ticked all four boxes. At its most basic concept, the Flyknit consists of knitting thread into a single layer to fit around your foot. However, before you shudder at the memory of having to wear your Gran’s knitted creations when you were younger, the technology behind Flyknit is something you can’t not appreciate.
The innovative Nike Flyknit Racer Unisex Running Shoe gets its structure and support from Nike Flyknit technology. As a result, it's incredibly lightweight, with a precision fit that feels like a second skin.
The one-piece knit upper seamlessly integrates areas of high support, breathability and stretch where you need them most—without overlays, which add weight. For an adaptive fit, lightweight dynamic Flywire wraps the foot and is adjustable through the laces.
A Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot offers low-profile, ultra-responsive cushioning. The full-length, compression-moulded Phylon midsole provides even more lightweight impact protection.
The waffleskin rubber outsole features a racing-specific diamond pattern, delivering lightweight durability and traction. Outsole lugs are raised slightly under the forefoot for enhanced grip and comfort at toe-off.
The Nike Flyknit Racer is designed as a marathon or everyday long distance running shoe. At an astonishing 160 grams, you'll appreciate it when, after a long race, your feet don't feel like they're carrying around lead weights.
