The latest leap forward in sneaker tech is right around the corner with the impending release of Nike’s new Flyprint. The VaporFly Elite Flyprint has been built using a radical 3D printed textile, which is made from layers of heated TPU filaments in a process known as solid deposit modelling.
But don’t get too excited yet by the prospect of wrapping your feet in the next-gen tech — the retail price for the initial release will be a whopping $600USD! Fingers crossed that in future we'll see some slightly more affordable offerings from the textile technicians of Beaverton.
The Nike VaporFly Elite Flyprint is rumoured to be releasing on April 22 to coincide with the London Marathon.
