Auxiliary features include a midsole for mid-range cushioning, along with an elasticized cuff that keeps the ankle fit extra-snug. Theres even a green angle: By knitting the upper in a single piece, Nike is able to slash its typical upper waste by roughly 88 percent. Click below the fold to watch the shoe in action.
