Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” Features Suede Jumpman Logo

A year ahead of its 30th anniversary in 2019, the Air Jordan 4 is set to take on a colorway originally seen on the Air Jordan 7. The famed “Raptors” theme will soon make its presence felt on the 1989 produced silhouette. And while it won’t carry the said title on its way to retailers later this year, it’s clear the shoe will be one of the more popular 4’s to release this year.

Colored in a smooth noir upper with contrasting University Red and Court Purple shades, this palette represents the Raptors retro uniforms from the ’90s. What’s more, this variation of the Air Jordan 4 sees plush suede tongue construction that presents the Jumpman logo with a contemporary allure.

Release details for the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” remain scarce. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more details.

Nike Flyprint is the 3D-Printing Performance Fabric That Will Revolutionize the Sneaker Industry

Technology is often moving at a speed faster than most of us can keep pace. Where sneakers are concerned, technological advancements in the industry are changing not only what we wear, but how brands manufacture products we ultimately covet.

Nike announced the introduction of Flyprint — the first 3D-printed performance fabric. And, for what it’s worth, it may just be their most influential contribution to sneakers in more than a decade. Yes, it’s bigger than Flyknit and more culturally relevant than Hyperadapt self-lacing technology.

On many levels, Flyprint is a highly defined, remarkably streamlined iteration of Flyknit. Think of it as an iOS update that finally feels right, following countless workable yet slightly inefficient patches. Now that’s no knock on Flyknit — or Flywire for that matter — as there wouldn’t be one without the other. But progression has always defined Nike and its many innovations.

The Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint feels different. It feels right. It feels like they nailed it. Here’s a deep-dive into what it is, how it came to be and why it will be great.

What Exactly Is Flyprint?

The term computational design is largely associated with creation and thus the definition of progression in the tech industry. Nike Flyprint now represents that space in sneakers. A manufacturing marvel as the first 3D-printed textile upper in performance footwear, Flyprint uppers are produced solely through a solid deposit modeling (SDM). The process represents a TPU filament unwound from a coil, melted and laid down in layers. This is all backed by a customized 3D printer from a proprietary Nike polymer.

Unlike many 3D-printed goods, Flyprint is not necessarily a hard-shell composite. It’s more of a fabrication with reinforcements by past Nike developments like Flyknit and Flywire at the tongue, collar and eyestay. There’s a noticeable bond between Flyprint and Flyknit. The two work in matrimony through a seamless union that creates a lightweight one-piece design, built both for performance and aesthetics. Sure, Flyprint can be a standalone product, but as of right now it doesn’t appear to be.

Where Flyprint surpasses all other technologies is in its specificity to athletic performance. The process to develop the Flyprint upper starts with capturing athlete data. As previously mentioned, this is funneled through computational design. Data is accumulated and computed to affirm the ideal composition of the material. That information is then used to help produce the final textile. This not only lends to Flyprint’s exclusivity, but it speaks to just how fast iterations can be created. Nike has stated that prototyping is 16-times quicker than in any previous manufacturing method. This implies athletic performance can be tweaked and tested in record time, allowing athletes to overcome roadblocks at a much quicker turnaround. Moreover, Nike now has the ability to produce customized 3D-printed sneakers faster than ever.

How Did Flyprint Come To Be?

In September 2017, at the Berlin Marathon, Eluid Kipchonge ran the fastest time ever recorded, canvassing the 26.2 mile distance in 2 hours and 25 seconds. Still, he fell short of his ultimate goal of finishing a marathon in under 2 hours. The Kenyan distance runner was the central figure in Nike’s 2017 #Breaking2 campaign, which also revolved around their hallmark marathon runner, the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite.

In that failure — if it can even be described as such — Nike learned a very valuable lesson: the shoes were absorbing water on wet surfaces, slowing down the runner’s strides as Kipchonge would later detail. So, in lieu of tinkering with the shoe’s chunky midsole tooling which provides unparalleled energy return, Nike designers revisited a new application of a performance-printed 3D upper. They would later coin the process Flyprint.

This is not the first time a groundbreaking innovation emerged from a misfire. Roger Chen, Senior Director of NXT Digital Innovation at Nike, in a statement to Fast Company said that Nike didn’t originally want to implement 3D-printing simply because it’s the shiny new industry toy. It had to, and at its very essence was required to in order to make absolute sense for both the runner and the product.

“We didn’t want to use 3D printing for the sake of using 3D printing,” Chen reiterated. “That’s where we took a step back, and thought, how do we focus on the design brief: a lighter shoe, that’s more breathable, and allows rain and moisture control?”

Flyprint Will Completely Shift Performance Running Footwear

One of the primary functions of a great runner is speed. The Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint weighs just 169 grams, undeniably making it one of the lightest running sneakers on the market. This marks a 6% reduction in weight when compared to the Zoom Vaporfly Elite which comes in at 180 grams. This leads to a huge indicator of increased speed for the runner — that’s not to mention the Elite Flyprint’s ability to shed potential weight added by water retention.

A Flyprint upper is almost visibly translucent. When you’re running in the shoe the wind blows through to your feet, a feeling Kipchonge related to “flying.” As one of the fastest distance runners around he is flying, in large part due to Nike’s ability to render Flyprint to perfection from start to finish in approximately four months. Typically, sneaker production of this magnitude takes the better part of ten to twelve months.

Nike, with the creation of Flyprint, has scaled the trial and error process substantially. Speed now takes on an entirely different connotation. Runners are inherently and through hard work filled with endurance and speed. Now, Nike can produce running sneakers with industry best speed. By every measure, quicker production should also eliminate increasing labor cost. Robotics doesn’t require an hourly rate for manufacturing processes.

Back in 2016, Nike competitor, adidas, announced plans to open its Speedfactory in Cherokee country Georgia. Its foundational premise relies on automation and production robots to streamline and simplify manufacturing. Adidas stated the factory would allow them to produce more of its products faster and in closer proximity to its consumer base which has grown exponentially in the U.S. in recent years.

Nike, too, won’t be far removed from factories of a similar volition. Fewer physical employees, greater production numbers and, equally important, reduced waste allow this approach to manufacturing. Simply put, it can and will aid Nike’s ongoing sustainability efforts.

What To Expect From Flyprint This Year

Eluid Kipchonge will debut the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint at the London Marathon on April 22nd. Subsequently, a limited number of pairs will be made available that weekend in London via the Nike app. The shoe will reportedly cost 0 USD.

This, as history has proven, is repeat behavior where widely desired Nike performance releases are concerned. An athlete wears the shoe, Nike tweaks it to meet their personal specifications, then, at a later time, a somewhat scaled version is released to the masses.

Pro-level technologies will be pronounced to a lesser degree for retail, as the general public doesn’t require what a pro marathoner does. Expectations are that the shoe will be available to the masses in late 2018 or early 2019.

What’s certain at the current time is that Nike has created something that will revolutionize the footwear industry. Computational design in mind, this incredible new approach towards performance runners could one day impact the world of basketball, football and the full range of track & field.

Nike is going full tilt with Flyprint. This is just the beginning.

Nike’s New M2K Tekno Sneaker Appears in Black/Volt Colorway

When Kanye West returned to Twitter after an almost year-long hiatus last week, his very first tweet — which has since been deleted — was regarding Nike’s budding M2K Tekno silhouette. Kanye compared the shoe to his Yeezy Boost 700 stating that Nike took creative inspiration from his design. Today, though, West indirectly walked back into that comment. He stated everything is inspired by something; no one is reinventing the wheel.

That said, Nike’s modern-day Monarch is back to just being an exciting new release with no equivocations. Following its debut last year during John Elliott’s New York Fashion Week presentation, the shoe emerged in a Sail hued women’s edition. As expected, men’s colorways are en route including this newly vindicated Black/Volt option.

Much of the model is outfitted in black leather overlays with textured paneling and toe wrap. Volt branding marks the quarter paneling and insole while the heel is also finished in the vibrant hue.

The Nike M2K Tekno Black/Volt is set to release on May 19 for 0 at select Swoosh retailers.

A comfortable fit comes courtesy of an EVA drop-in, suede footbed and rear quarter leather lining. A sculpted gum rubber cup sole finishes the look. Retailing for 0, the kicks will be available through adidas.com and select retailers beginning April 28th.

adidas Kamanda Takes Style Inspiration from ’80s Terrace Movement

Fashion is an industry largely coursed on a cyclical track. Trends tend to orbit around this cycle, but the things that are truly great are truly great a couple of times over. In the ’80s, especially in Europe, the Terrace movement and soccer aesthetics reigned heavily on the style conscious. Decades later, adidas Originals takes influence from that time to help shape its all-new Kamanda silhouette.

Terracewear was fueled by a spirited defiance of traditional style values. Its alternative point of view is referenced through the adidas Kamanda, which opts for distinction via style roads less traveled. The translucent gum cup sole pulls from soccer heritage while equally standing in union with Terrace footwear of the ’80s. What’s more, clear nods to the Samba OG are seen throughout the nubuck centric style. Comfort is centered around an EVA drop-in and a cozy suede footbed. Mesh tongue construction aids that cause to an even greater degree.

The shoe’s overarching sportswear aesthetic is the driving force here. And while much of the silhouette is slanted towards an elder era, contemporary styling stands at the forefront of the design as well. The overall shaping and time-honored “what’s old is new again” theme solidifies this spring/summer 2018 release.

Look for the adidas Kamanda to debut in Oxblood and Black colorways on April 28 at adidas.com/kamanda.
