Nike: Experiments in Natural Motion

We took a look inside Nike's The Nature of Natural Motion exhibition at Milan Design week yesterday, one thing that we were really drawn to were the footwear experiments on display. Starting with Flyknit uppers, Nike's design team created a collection of aptly named Experiments by placing numerous objects and materials where the outsole would normally go. Far from practical, we're totally obsessed with these sculpture-like objects.
