For over four decades now, Nike has been committed to delivering technically advanced products for world-class athletes. That progressive drive has led to the development of Nike Flyweave, a textile upper created through an intricate weaving process that maximizes the foot’s natural motion and provides enhanced support for specific movement. The technology was born from the use of engineered textiles prevalent in the aerospace industry, with woven textiles — versus knitted material — making for an inherently stronger fabrication. Production is carried out by a loom that interlaces two distinct sets of thread (the warp and weft) to create a textile, with a woven seam connecting every yarn for maximum durability.

This past year, Nike Flyweave has made its way to four prominent shoe: the Air Jordan XX9 (basketball), Nike TW ’15 (golf), Nike CJ Elite TD Cleat (football) and Nike CJ3 Flyweave Trainer (training). Look for Flyweave to debut soon on Nike Basketball shoes.
