With the innovative Flyknit Racer, Nike submits its bid for the best fitting road-racing shoe ever. The upper is constructed from a single knit panel for a seamless and socklike fit that adapts to the shape of the foot through the gait cycle while reducing irritations on the foot. The responsive midsole features a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for lightweight protection, suitable for distances up to the marathon.
The Flyknit Racer is a minimum feature, minimum neutral racing shoe designed for 5k to marathon distances.
Zoom Air located in the forefoot consists of low-profile pressurized air pockets that flex on contact for responsive cushioning.
Phylon is a full-length midsole foam that delivers lightweight, resilient cushioning.
