Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint

by Team Sneakest April 19, 2018

Nike introduces the first 3D printed textile upper in performance footwear, the Nike Flyprint. With technologies to unlock new, precision-tuned performance, this introduction might just be a game-changer in the performance industry.

The Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint is the first sneaker to feature the Flyprint uppers. Created for Eluid Kipchoge, who ran the fastest marathon ever, the new upper improves the VaporFly Elite shoe and makes it 11g lighter than Kipchoge's original pair.

Nike's Flyprint are produced through a process called solid deposit modeling (SDM), where a TPU filament is unwound from a coil, melted and laid down in layers. This allows designers to capture athlete data and translate that into an ideal composition of the material, producing a sneaker made specifically for that athlete with unprecedented precision compared to any previous manufacturing method.


The Nike Flyprint promises to be lighter and more breathable than Nike's previous textile. This means endless possibility for the Flyprint uppers, especially with more efficiency achieved using the latest manufacturing method.

The first production of Nike Flyprint is in the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint, where Kipchoge will lace up the pair at his next marathon in London, in 22nd April. In conjunction with that, a limited run of the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint will be sold in London through the Nike App.
