HYPERADAPT 1.0

ADAPTIVE LACING
The first performance vehicle for adaptive lacing, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is the payoff of over a decade of research in digital, electrical and mechanical engineering. It challenges traditional understandings of fit, proposing an ultimate solution to individual idiosyncrasies in lacing and tension preference by providing precise, consistent, personalized lockdown that can be manually adjusted on the go.

AIR ZOOM KD9

MULTIDIRECTIONAL MOVEMENT
Kevin Durant’s trademark versatility and crazy court coverage meet their match in the Nike Air Zoom KD9.

NIKE FREE RN MOTION FLYKNIT

FREE EVOLVED
The 2004 version of Nike Free was a design reaction to a new understanding of biomechanics. The 2016 iteration combines new insights that reveal how the foot expands and contracts upon impact with and liftoff from the ground. The upshot is an auxetic midsole that splays across two planes to mimic the significant changes in foot size — approximately one size in length and two sizes in width — that occur throughout a runner’s stride. Coupled with a dynamic Flyknit upper, the Nike Free RN Motion Flyknit makes for our most natural ride yet.

AIR VAPORMAX

PINNACLE OF AIR
The Nike Air VaporMax pays off the full promise of Air: to deliver lightweight, consistent cushioning that lasts. It leverages new technologies to incorporate even more Air into the unit and eradicate the traditional foam midsole, placing cushioning directly underfoot for unbeatable energy response.
