Nike Flyknit Racer

Nike Flyknit technology, introduced in 2012, resulted in the first sneaker with knit uppers, a solution for runners who sought a sock-like fit. The revolutionary yarn-knit single-strand fabrication technique allows structure and support, creating a shoe that is both formfitting and exceptionally lightweight. Avoiding wastage from pattern cutting typically associated with sneaker production, the Flyknit is also an exceptionally “green” shoe.
