Nike HTM Flyknit Collection
These are the offspring of the collab between the sneaker genius Tinker Hatfield, Hiroshi Fujiwara, and Nike CEO Mark Parker. It took seemingly three of them to decide the next major innovation in the shoe game would be knitting. This is different from the "air" and "shox" technology that was, for lack of a better term, a gimmick. This however, may really be the performance boosting tech that will set Nike apart from the rest for some time to come. First and foremost is the fit, far snugger and comfortable than the average shoe, giving the competitive types a superior feel for their feet in whatever sport they're playing. Next, and maybe the most important, is the weight. The running variety of the HTM Flyknit comes in at a very sparse 7.7 ounces. It is that lightweightness that'll have all the runners and basketball players from the US Olympic Team sporting these this summer in the 2012 Olympic summer games. Soon to be available everywhere.
