Long before Nike’s catalog became heavy with retro releases and cool-guy collabos, they were a company founded by a group of runners. Their goal was ushering in new technology for runners, a goal which they realized again and again as they helped bring the sport to the masses. That drive still shines through on projects like the Nike Sole, an add-on for the prosthetic leg of world record holding runner and Ironman athlete Sarah Reinertsen. Nike got together with orthopedics company Össur to work on the project, which started as an altered version of the sole package from the Nike Free 5.0, and ended up as a customized multi-layer system that even manages to be environmentally friendly, being constructed of recycled air bags. Follow us after the jump a behind the scenes look at the design process behind of this exciting project from the Nike Innovation Kitchen.
