Nike Flyknit redefines performance in a near zero waste, incredibly comfortable, reductionist process that is altering the way we look at developing footwear. The characteristics of the Nike Flyknit technology has been applied to the arts through the activation of the Nike Flyknit Collective, formed to offer a place for global innovator to use these key principles and apply and interpret them in a way that connects with local communities.
