Nike Hyperfeel Aims to be An Extension of the Foot

The Nike Free Hyperfeel is a new breed of “Nature Amplified” design ethos which focuses on the body in motion. The precise placement of cushioning and outsole traction for a low-profile shoe provides padding and protection only where absolutely necessary. A drop-in Lunarlon insole with flex grooves allows the foot to have direct contact with the Lunarlon cushioning. The waffle outsole is ultra-thin, allowing the foot to get closer to the ground.

Using pressure-mapping technology and high-speed film to analyze the foot in motion, Scientists in the Nike Sport Research Lab created a shoe that is essentially an extension of the foot. The result is meant to replicate the natural motion of the foot.
