This fall, Nike will introduce several top-end sneakers made using Hyperfuse technology. These are Air Max and Air Force. Perhaps, closer to the fall, other sneakers created in the Fuse style will also appear, the street-style website reports. This technology allows you to create a breathable and lightweight shoe, using only one seam in the manufacture. The monolithic form of the upper part of the shoe is created under high pressure and temperature from several layers of fabric and fiber material.
Nike designers first used Hyperfuse technology in basketball shoes in the 2010 year. Noticing that the shoes wear out very much on the asphalt basketball courts in Beijing, the Nike developers faced a difficult task. With the help of innovative technologies, breathable, stable and durable basketball shoes, called Nike Hyperfuse, were created. The technology soon spread to equipment in other sports, as the demand for lightweight and breathable sneakers increased.
Hyperfuse technology allows you to create a more wear-resistant material, consisting of three layers: one provides stability, the second - breathability and the third - strength. All three layers are fused by heating under pressure, which allows to achieve a result that is impossible using the traditional method. The advantages of the technology are light weight, breathability and reduced seams. The biggest surprise for the creators was the emergence of new color combinations when applying layers to each other.
With the help of Hyperfuse, designers were able to make a breakthrough in the field of color solutions and decoration elements. Translucent layers when superimposed on each other give unexpected color combinations. The Nike Sportswear Autumn 2011 collection takes advantage of all these benefits - neon green, red and blue, complemented by shades of gray and silver, plus the flicker of reflective trim details.
