Nike Flyknit technology debuted in Nike’s running shoes in February 2012. Now the groundbreaking footwear technology is transforming basketball shoes. Flyknit’s precisely engineered yarns create a featherweight, formfitting and supportive upper.
“Flyknit is strong enough to be able to sustain the dynamic, multi-directional movements of a professional basketball player,” said Bryant of the Nike KOBE 9 Elite. “Flyknit makes the Kobe 9 Elite the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever played in. You don’t feel it – that’s the beauty of it.”
Following the successful release of last year’s Nike Flyknit Lunar1+, the Flyknit revolution continues in running with the Fyknit Lunar2 featured in the film. The updated design pairs the powerful and ultra-light Nike Flyknit upper with super soft and responsive Nike Lunarlon cushioning, and features a new outsole pattern that was informed by pressure-mapping data. The result is an even more natural stride and fluid ride. Athletes can experience the lightweight strength of Nike Flyknit technology in a variety of styles including the Nike Flyknit Air Max, Nike Free Flyknit and Nike Free Hyperfeel.
“When I’m doing my training runs, I really want something comfortable – you don’t want to be thinking about anything else but your run,” said Felix, who wears the Nike Flyknit Lunar2. “It’s really great when you have a shoe that’s so lightweight and comfortable that you don’t even know it’s there.”
