History of Nike Mayfly Woven

Mark Bowerman, co-founder of the global brand Nike, had a vision. He aimed to design and develop a runner that was light yet able to withstand an intense race from start to finish.

Thankfully, in the early 2000’s, a team that included Messrs Sean McDowell, Kevin Paulk, Tony Bignell and Jerry Crowley, all veterans in the design and development of running footwear, took the challenge.

Finally, Bowerman’s vision materialized in the form of the Nike Mayfly.

Released in the year 2003, the shoe’s original design was drawn from an aquatic insect called the Mayfly, which relatively has a short lifespan.

Crafted with a single piece nylon upper and a minimalist phylon sole, the shoe only weighed 135 grams.
