The Nike Free Hyperfeel TR’s lightweight upper acts like a second skin for the athlete’s foot, providing ultralight, training-specific support with a contoured fit. Flyknit technology seamlessly integrates areas of breathability, stretch and support where they’re needed most. For example, with this technology, designers can incorporate tighter zones in precise locations where athletes require increased support.
Nike Flyknit – which was first used in Nike running shoes in 2012 and recently in the KOBE 9 Elite basketball shoe and Magista soccer boot – defies conventional shoe manufacturing processes by creating an engineered upper woven from special yarns. Flyknit technology benefits athletes with its unprecedented feel and fit, creating a second-skin, sock-like feel for strength and support. The manufacturing process reduces material waste.
The Nike Free Hyperfeel TR is available at Nike.com and select retail locations beginning May 1.
