Vectran® Puts Zoom In New Nike Running Shoe

The new Zoom Victory Spike running shoe from Nike incorporates Kuraray America Inc.’s high-strength multifilament Vectran® fiber. The shoe utilizes Vectran — which Kuraray supplied to Nike for conversion into embroidery threads — in its new Flywire technology. Each shoe uses 116 Vectran fiber Flywire strands, which help to provide support and cushioning at such key points as the forefoot and heel.

“Vectran fiber’s unique combination of properties, including its tensile strength, light weight and flexibility, enabled Nike to design the lightest-weight spikes ever made,” said Robert Knudsen, Kuraray’s sales and marketing manager, Vectran.
