nike free flyknit release reminder Nike Free Flyknit Release Reminder

Tomorrow will see the release of the Nike Free Flyknit, marking one of the first times that the Flyknit technology will be married with another performance oriented group from Nike. The result is super sock-like between the lightweight nature of the knit and the intended barefoot feel of the Free nubbing. There will be no shortage of out-the-gate colorways: there are thirteen total up for grabs between the women’s and men’s. Continue reading to get a look at all of the debut Nike Free Flyknit pairs and watch for them to release tomorrow, August 1st.

Sneaker Anatomy: Nike Free Flyknit

Free and Flyknit. One innovation dates back nearly a decade, rewriting the rules of impact cushioning that defined the era before it. The other is rather recent, reinventing the upper of sneaker radically from both a production and appearance standpoint. The two technologies share a silo for the first time on the Nike Free Flyknit, which officially releases on Thursday, August 1. Showcasing a common bond in flexible fit and minimal running, we take a look at the details that distinguish the Free Flyknit in this installment of Sneaker Anatomy.

Flyknit Upper

Nike Free Flyknit

As Nike Flyknit technology turns a year old, the Free Flyknit features an upper evolved from previous interpretations. A zone performance mapping upper is designed to be conscious of pressure and stress points on the top of the foot, acknowledged by three zones that differ in tightness and flexibility. Such styling is meant to aid a second-skin fit via the Flyknit upper, designed to be supportive, secure and comfortable. Flyknit composition makes for a one-piece upper, and reduces waste of the typical Nike upper by an average of 88%.

Collar

Nike Free Flyknit

Aesthetically, the Nike Free Flyknit looks a lot like a sock. A collar entry rather than a traditional tongue plays to such a look, while echoing the model’s minimalist mantra. The collar coincides with the upper’s one-piece design, representing one of the three Flyknit zones. This styling also allows the wearer to slip the shoe on and off. The Free Flyknit can be worn with or without socks.

Nike Flyknit Trainer+ – Squadron Blue – Pink Flash

Nike Flyknit Trainer Squadron Blue Pink Flash Nike Flyknit Trainer+ Squadron Blue Pink Flash

Of all the models sporting its namesake material over the past year, the Nike Flyknit Trainer+ has issued the most colorways.  It was the Flyknit Trainer that took to the Olympic medal stand last summer, and continues to run alongside the more recently introduced Lunar Flyknit One.  Here’s a new style that demonstrates one of the things Flyknit does best, namely, blending two colors into one.  You see a good bit of that at the toe of this Squadron Blue and Pink Flash pair, the result being a rich wine-like color that gives this pair its unique feel.  Check out more images below and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.

Nike Flyknit Prototypes


nikenike running 0 Nike Flyknit Prototypes

The dilemma is almost as old as shoes themselves: make them feel as if the wearer wasn’t even lacing up a pair at all. That’s quite a tall order. But, as we well know, Nike‘s designers have been on the case for some time now, beginning with the 1980′s attempt at the flimsy mesh sneaker called the Sock Racer that – although it was a literal flop – was a key part of the Swoosh getting to where they are today with the 5.6 ounce Flyknit runner. Made from synthetic yarn expertly and precisely woven together by a knitting machine, the Flyknit is a blockbuster product, to say the least. With their Innovation Summit underway, Nike is giving us a look into the development of the now famous sneaker, including early prototypes that combine the technology with the Lunar midsole. A simple enough concept, but one that has definitely proved hard to execute, see how Nike went about it in more detail after the click.
