NikeCourt Air Zoom Ultrafly

The initial design brief for the NikeCourt Air Zoom Ultrafly, was “to build a ‘rocket ship‘” for tennis, or something that could take the sport to a completely new area. NikeCourt design team spoke to a number of tennis athletes about their off-court training and learned that some ran sprints while wearing track spikes in order to improve their speed. This insight presented a new challenge for the team: How to transfer this lightweight, formfitting footwear to the court?
