Berlin Flyknit Experience 6 Nike Flyknit Experience Berlin   Recap
Yesterday, Nike invited Berlin-based journalists and sneaker addicts to experience the latest release of the Nike technology. The Nike Flyknit Lunar+1, that comes in a vibrant pink and volta -amongst some other stylish color ways- is not only the ultimate summer lifestyle sneaker but also the inevitable running partner for all professional and spare time joggers…as experienced firsthand!

Along a huge Flyknit installation by Jenny Sabin, a 900 m parcours was set up in the huge halls of an abandoned fabric hall in Berlin-Kreuzberg. With light installments, laser show and some nice tunes by DJ Showi, everyone present was invited to lend a pair of kicks and test the Flyknit their selves. On site, Ben Shaffer Head of Design at Nike, explained the advantages of the Flyknit and runner newcomer Gesa Felicitas Krause and Jana Sussmann reported on their running experiences. We talked to Ben Shaffer about the Flyknit and will upload the interview in the next days.

On the occasion of the official launch, the indoor running track will open it’s doors for all Nike+ users this Saturday, February 23, from 12 to 12 and invites them to also be part of the Nike Experience Berlin. Come by!

Luckenwalder Str. 4-6
