Knitting may conjure up images of granny working on socks, but the latest tech in sneakers involved knitted, one-piece uppers. It makes them lighter, more flexible, and better ventilated cutting out the need for 95 percent of the seams – so no chafing or irritation. It also makes them super-comfortable; wear them for running and just about everything else you do. The smart engineers at the tick company wanted to replicate the feeling and comfort of wearing socks, but with the support of the Lunarlon cushioning. It took four years to find a way to make these uppers, and now they’ve created the perfect running shoe: featherlight, form-fitting and virtually seamless.
