Origins of the Flyknit technology: the Nike Flyknit technology is inspired by the feedback of the runners who wanted a shoe with a comfortable fit (practically no seams) typical of a sock. Nike has dedicated itself to a four-year enterprise that involved teams of programmers, engineers and designers in the realization of the technology necessary to produce knitted upper with static properties of resistance and support. And the combination of support, flexibility and breathability, in a single layer, has proved successful. The result is a very light upper, close-fitting and practically without seams. This unprecedented accuracy improves performance by reducing the waste of materials by about 60% compared to traditional processes. Each pair of shoes in Flyknit is made with the equivalent of six recycled plastic bottles, preventing thousands of tons of materials from ending up in landfills.
