Inspiration meets innovation in the Nike ACG 3D Flyprint Prototype 1, a concept sneaker design project for Nike by designer Janis Sne.
The Prototype 1, the shoe created for the concept project “Nike ACG 3D Flyprint” from Janis Sne, highlights the worlds of data performance, ACG design history, and innovation. Each Prototype 1 uses a full 3D printed Flyprint upper, which is both lightweight and ultra-breathable, and covers the Flyprint with a Gore-Tex membrane that is water-proof and breathable.
Throughout the upper, Flywire technology wraps beneath the arch of your foot in order to help provide comfortable 360-degree support. Underfoot, a wide second generation React outsole provides a stable base for more balance on rougher terrains. The design of the outsole reminds us of some of the data mapping outsole designs from Nike used on models like the Kobe 9 and Vaporfly 4%.
“We are entering revolutionary and very exciting period in history of sportswear,” wrote Sne in a statement. “Time where data performance is truly affecting and changing the way how we interact with the garments.”
Sne recognizes that each and every person is nearly unique in anatomy. In each pair of Prototype 1, an individual’s foot would first be scanned and then the pair would be constructed in order to fit and support each person as perfectly as possible.
