Men’s Nike Flyknit Athletic Shoes

Since their original release in 2012, lightweight Nike Flyknit athletic shoes have become a staple piece of footwear for professional and amateur athletes, as well as a go-to casual pair for many men.

Nike Flyknit Material

Nike Flyknit is an innovative fabric technology used to create shoe uppers. It is made from blended polyester yarn knitted into shape by machine. By developing precise knitting patterns and using polyester threads with different elastic properties in different parts of the shoe, Nike were able to create sock-like shoes that still provided the necessary support for athletic use. Flyknit has a few important advantages over traditional nylon or leather uppers. It is extremely light, with the original Flyknit Racer weighing just 160 grams in a size 9. The stretchy weave fits more snugly than a leather upper can without squeezing and also allows cooling airflow.

Men’s Flyknit Athletic Shoes

Flyknit was originally developed for Nike running shoes. The first Flyknit shoe, the Flyknit Racer, was released in 2012, and that summer Flyknit shoes began appearing on athlete’s feet at the 2012 London Olympics. The Flyknit material was soon applied to other sports as well, including football with the Nike Magista, basketball with various models of the Kobe and even golf with the Flyknit Chukka Golf. Nike men’s runners remain an important part of their Flyknit lineup though, with styles like the Flyknit Racer, Nike Free Flyknit and Zoom Flyknit remaining popular.

Men’s Flyknit Casual Shoes

With all the buzz around Flyknit when it launched, it wasn’t long before it was picked up by sneakerheads as well as athletes. Men’s Flyknit Nike sneakers soon became a style staple. Various classic Nike shoes for men have received the Flyknit treatment, including the men’s Nike Air Force 1, the Air Max 90 and the Dunk. Sleek running shoes like the Flyknit Runner and Flyknit Trainer were also adopted for everyday wear.

Nike Flyknit Colours

One of the less practical advantages of Flyknit is its appearance. The knitted uppers made it easy for Nike to produce all kinds of colourways that would have been impossible to create with another material. The popular multicolour Flyknit is a case in point. The fluorescent yellow Volt colourway that debuted at the 2012 Olympics also makes occasional reappearances. Not every pair of men’s Nike Flyknit shoes is quite so loud, though, so people with more conservative tastes can also find their perfect pair.
