The stretchy Flyknit is a durable and stretchy knitted upper material introduced by Nike to keep the foot lightweight, breathable and flexible. Full-length Zoom Air cushioning technology has helped a lot in keeping the Nike Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer well-cushioned and comfortable. But probably, its most notable feature is the Flyknit material in the upper that gives the shoe a snug fit of a sock.

Enhanced support of the Flyknit upper

The revolutionary Flyknit material is a result of four years of study of Nike programmers, designers, and engineers for an upper technology that would create a knitted upper resulting in enhanced support, flexibility, and breathability. This particular technology helped Nike in revolutionizing its top material, the Flyknit, which is known to be featherweight and formfitting which eventually results in a seamless upper.
