The Next Evolution Of Nike’s Flyknit

Nike's Flyknit technology totally fucked up the whole game when it debuted early last year, popping up on the feet of both menswear dudes and gym-goers. Since then, Nike has ridden its wave in a host of different shapes, colors and varieties, from the Flyknit Chukka to the Flyknit Lunar +1 and beyond. Prior to the Flyknit, Nike's previous claim to running community fame was its Free technology, which debuted in 2004 and afforded some of the best "natural ride" footwear the world had ever seen. Today, Nike unveiled their newest collection of innovative footwear at their headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. The shoes causing the most buzz are the first ever Free x Flyknit sneaker babies, aptly titled the Nike Free Flyknit. The sneaker boasts a Free sole and silhouette constructed using Flyknit technology. The end result is pretty crazy, with debut colorways looking like a second grade sand art project. Nike has said the shoe features "revolutionary second-skin technology," which you're just as likely to read on a box of Trojans. The other buzzed-about sneaker to come out of the event was the Nike Free Hyperfeelz, excuse me, Hyperfeel, which, again, meshes a whole bunch of pre-exisiting Nike running technology.
