One of the best ways to grow and learn is to listen. So it is no surprise to find the inspiration behind Nike’s revolutionary Flyknit technology came from Nike taking the time to listen to runners’ feedback. That feedback conveyed one consistent message: runners wanted a shoe that had the qualities of a sock. But what made a sock-like upper desirable also made it a poor choice for a running upper. So Nike worked to create what was being sought; a shoe that would be snug, flexible, and light.
Nike’s four-year journey to create the ultimate running shoe required teams of programmers, engineers, and designers. The result was an all-new precision engineering process to create lightweight, form-fitting Flyknit that incorporates only what is needed in a one-piece upper.
The women's Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+ is the next step in the minimalist shoe trend, incorporating Flywire technology that helps the shoe mold to the foot giving these shoes the feel of a second skin or form-fitting sock. This next generation of the Flyknit family also incorporates a Lunarlon sole, which offers superior lightweight cushioning.
Not only has Nike Flyknit been called one of the best inventions of the year, there also has been a lot said about its looks. The materials used to make Nike Flyknit create beautiful colors and textures unlike anything that has been seen in the running world.
Beautiful, extraordinarily lightweight, and performance enhancing, the Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+ has taken the running shoe industry to an all-new level.
