Tech Fleece is one of Nike’s most deceptively simple innovations. The material imbues jersey cotton with a thin layer of air trapping foam, allowing the garment to provide warmth and insulation while remaining lightweight and breathable. To the naked eye, tech fleece garments just look like sleek, modern sportswear.
Nike has chosen two very fitting footwear silhouettes to receive the tech fleece treatment. The Sock Dart and the Air Moccasin were forerunners of the progressive, minimalist aesthetic that is practically its own field of footwear design now.
The minimal shapes of the Sock Dart and the Air Moccasin allow the Tech Fleece uppers to be the true focal point of this project.
