Sports + Technology | Lectures by material designers of NIKE shoes

When it comes to Nike brand, I believe that we will not be unfamiliar, among which nike shoes are loved by people. With the segmentation of the consumers' demands for sports more and more accurate and precise, the factors affecting the consumers' purchase decision have gradually expanded from simple aesthetics and comfort to higher requirements on function and professionalism. This is a bigger challenge for designers.

Shoe industry used to be a labor-intensive industry, but in recent years, the development of industrial production process and automation has profoundly changed the relationship between factories, sports brands and consumers. We have a pair of ordinary sports shoes on our feet, and the science and technology content involved in materials, physics, manufacturing and other fields may be far beyond imagination.
