Nike Hyperfuse Collection
Bright colours, iconic designs and innovative technology – great new collection by Nike.
“Hyperfuse creates a durable composite material composed of three layers; one for stability, one for breathability and the third for durability. All three layers are fused together using heat and pressure to create a level of precision unattainable via traditional cut-and-sew methods. The unibody design results in lightweight, breathable footwear and minimizes seams that can wear on an athlete’s foot. The process had also created a new look, one that ‘opened up’ the overlays of the shoe to see through it.
This new sport aesthetic is merged with iconic silhouettes from Nike’s past in the Air Force One, Air Max One, Dunk Hi and Air Max 90. It turns out Hyperfuse also had some unintended results when designers found they could push the limits of both color and finishes with the new technology. The Fall 11 Nike Sportswear collection takes full advantage with hits of neon green, solar red and blue glow, complimented by shades of grey and silver and blasts of reflective detailing.”Fashion & Beauty Product Design Posted on November 11, 2011
