Nike officially introduced their Nike Free Inneva Woven today. Keeping in tradition with Nike’s Free line of sneakers, the Nike Free Inneva Woven was “designed to mimic the natural biomechanics of the foot”. While the sneaker is a Nike Free product through and through, it’s premium hand woven upper and dynamic lacing system helps to bring the sneaker off of the track/treadmill and into the street. The Nike Free Inneva Woven is officially set to release on 9/22 at select Nike retailers. Check out the full press release and more detailed pictures below.
Designed to mimic the natural biomechanics of the foot, the Nike Free Inneva Woven is defined by its premium crafted details: a hand-woven upper, dynamic lacing system and natural motion.
An intricate 360-degree hand-woven system interconnects laces with the nylon webbing to create a complex pattern that cradles the upper precisely to the foot. Taking inspiration from Nike running technologies, the natural motion midsole and outsole is flexible and comfortable.
The Nike woven process maximizes the “less is more” philosophy to minimize material waste to create a basket-like weave that serves both function and style.
First introduced in 2000, the original Nike Air Woven shoe flipped the convention of shoe making to create a new aesthetic that spawned a faithful fan contingent. This 2012 introduction of the Nike Free Inneva Woven brings the woven technique to a whole new level, with precision weave that features varied strand widths for support, flexibility and breathability. The Nike Free Inneva Woven merges craftsmanship and performance innovation to form a design that is as beautiful as its benefits.
The Nike Free Inneva Woven launches globally in limited quantities on Saturday, September 22.
