Nike Sportswear – 21 Mercer Street – Flywire Windrunner
The core product of Nike Sportswear apparel line. The new Flywire Windrunner in a continuation of improvements & innovations. Essentially a “new” Windrunner, designers streamlined every protruding surfaces on the classic Windrunner design. Pockets are now created by seamless No Sew technology process. In place is a newly designed hood with the hood adjusters taken out to further the streamline look. Even the 26° chevron gave way to Nike’s quest for performance. Rather than sewn, it is now digitally printed on. The improvements did not just end on appearance. The new Windrunner will feature Flywire material in 4+4 webbing form (again referring to 080808, the opening date of 2008 Olympic), the same technology found on the new Hyperdunk and Air Max 90 Current footwears. The latest in Nike innovation, Flywire works on similar concept as cables on suspension bridges. At key points, the high tensile threads could support the weight of the entire product, be it sneakers or jackets. In turn, usage of materials could be reduced. All this translates to the lightest Windrunner jacket ever, at only 116 grams. So light in fact that the jacket is semi-transparent. Available in 5 colorways of the Olympic movement.
