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.
