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 2010. Noticing the shoe's wear and tear on the asphalt basketball courts in Beijing, Nike was faced with a daunting task. The Nike Hyperfuse Basketball Shoe has been designed with innovative technology to create a breathable, stable and durable basketball shoe. The technology soon spread to other sports equipment as the demand for lightweight and breathable running shoes increased.
Hyperfuse technology creates a more durable material with three layers: one for stability, one for breathability and one for strength. All three layers are alloyed by heating under pressure, which allows achieving results that are not possible with the traditional method. The technology benefits from light weight, breathability and fewer seams. The biggest surprise for the creators was the emergence of new color combinations when overlaying layers.
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.
