Nike designers first introduced the new Hyperfuse technology in 2010 in basketball. Breathability, weight and stability were the two main ingredients that the new technology was supposed to solve. The three layers of the technology are fused together, using heat and pressure, resulting in a level of precision that is impossible to achieve via traditional cut-and-sew methods. The result is not only a new technology, new features, but also a new look.
For Fall 2011 Nike fused the Hyperfuse technology with one of their most iconic running and by now lifestyle sneakers – the Air Max 90. Today we preview the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse in two colorways, releasing later this year.
