Nike’s busy in New York City to unveil some of its newest innovations for 2012, the year of ‘making it count’. Just yesterday, Nike Running introduced the all-new Fly Knit technology on the new Fly Knit Racer+ and Fly Knit Trainer+, two super-lightweight shoes that have heady goals of redefining the limits of a lightweight runner utilizing the world’s best footwear designers and engineers while maintaining the supreme benchmark of Nike Running. A special Nike HTM Fly Knit Collection was previewed at a private event yesterday at 21 Mercer in New York City, where Hiroshi Fujiwara and Mark Parker, two-thirds of HTM, were on hand to discuss the new Fly Knit technology and how it aligns with the innovative legacy of the HTM Collection that began in 2002.
