Sprinters, in just a few fleeting moments, make their mark on the sporting world like few others can. Jamaican speedster, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who has won gold in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012, hopes to create history again in Rio with the help of Nike and the all-new Zoom Superfly Elite Spike.
Crafted to the exact specifications of Fraser-Pryce’s poetic motions, the shoe is designed to optimize energy return and make her faster and more conformable off the blocks. Nike also focused their efforts on propulsion, a bi-product of energy return vital to enhanced performance at maximum velocity.
Computational design and 3D prototyping play a large role in the design process of the shoe, which in tone falls in line with the “Unlimited” collection Nike debuted earlier today. Give Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce’s Nike Superfly Elite Spike a detailed look below.
