Almost every part of the shoe is designed to suggest the tranquility of a Zen garden: the modified Waffle outsole suggests stepping stones, the insole mirrors a raked rock garden, and slightly different midsole side length—a juxtaposition of seriousness and playfulness.Flyknit OriginsNike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners craving a shoe with the snug, sock-like fit. Nike embarked on a four year mission with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make a knit upper that also provided structure and durability. Finally, strategically placed zones of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—were also refined. The result is a featherweight, form-fitting, and virtually seamless upper.
