Combining the old with the new and the 2 most popular trainers, the Nike Air Force 1 and the Nike Flyknit a whole new world of comfort has been created.The Air Force 1 as popular as it is is a heavier sneaker compared to others so the weightless feel to the classic silhouette combined with its modern Fly knit technology is a huge success.
The Nike Sportswear team took their inspiration from long walks through Paris deciding they could make the shoe lighter, more flexible and reducing that dreaded crease along the toe vamp. By using injected unit rubber tooling instead of polyurethane tooling and micro-engineering each stitch they created the featherweight upper for “maximum comfort and minimal weight”.
The Tubular Doom launch is upon us and as the latest in the Adidas Collection we can’t wait to get our feet into them. By updating the silhouette Adidas have proven that they can continuously create new lines perfect for their consumer. The sock-like features provide comfort, a better fit and of course some added warmth which is ideal for this current weather.
Watch this space as the Tubular Doom collection will be dropping into stores in the not so distant future.
