A couple of years ago you would have thought the idea of knitted trainers would have been absolutely stinking. Picture in your head a pair of trainers your Gran rustled up for you to go along with your new scarf she’d knitted you. How wrong you would have been though. The invention of high velocity knit trainers has turned the world on its head. From Olympic track to fashion week, these ultralight wonders have stolen the show for both performance and looks. The future is here.

We’ve got 3 of the biggest brands around stocking their own versions of the perfect combination of style and comfort:


You’ve surely heard of adidas’ pride and joy – Primeknit. For those of you who aren’t aware of what it is, it is adidas’ own branded methodology of whipping up high quality, lightweight durable shoes. Where classic footwear is normally made from numerous separate pieces of material stitched together, the Primeknit method knits the entire upper of the shoe digitally and in one piece.

We’ve already told you all you need to know about Nike Flyknit, but we’ll give you a brief rundown just to refresh your memory. Similar to the Primeknit, the Flyknit’s materials are engineered only where needed to give that featherweight and formfitting near seamless upper. Truly delicious. And much like the Primeknit, it also gives you that feeling as if you’re wearing nothing at all. Real fly.

So far we’ve only seen some knit on the Asics Tiger Gel-Kayano Knit – but oooft it gives some extra comfort to the already comfortable Asics Tiger’s something fierce. The full-knit fabric upper gives the trainer extreme flexibility and comfort.

In addition to this, the themes of unity and togetherness in an increasingly divisive world are woven into the very design of the shoe. Hence the tagline – “We Are All Woven From the Same Thread”.
