Made from carbon, glass fibre, silicon & Dyneema, these BraidRunners by, Joël Salamin are a great twist on the Flyknit/Primeknit concept –
‘This shoe features an innovative upper constructed as one piece using industrial overbraiding technology. Ultra-light, just 200 grammes in a men’s size 10, it is like a second skin and is aimed at runners looking for sensations close to barefoot running.
To succeed in creating a snug and agile shoe that fits like a sock and is as light as a feather is for me, big sport fan and runner, was a unique experience. Being able to use my own prototypes is even more rewarding.’ – Joël
