Hyperfuse, Flywire and Flyknit are set to welcome a new member of the family with the addition of Flyprint. The new material technology is the first 3-D printed textile upper, which is created through solid deposit modeling, a process that involves unwinding a TPU filament from a coil and is then melted and placed into layers. It can also be combined with other materials like Flyknit, which can be thermally bonded to the Flyprint material without the need for glue or stitching. 

Look for the technology in the upcoming Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint. The shoe will be available in limited quantities this weekend in London through the Nike App.
