Sportswear manufacturer ‘designs out waste’ with lightweight trainer launch

One of the world’s biggest sportswear manufacturer claims to have designed out waste with the launch of two lightweight trainers using an innovative manufacturing process.

The Flyknit Racer and Flyknit Trainer shoes by Nike made their debut last week – both are unique in that they use only the materials needed to knit the upper of a shoe.

Whereas traditional footwear manufacturing processes use a number of materials and cuts, the Flyknit shoes use special yarns knitted together to create one lightweight, form fitting upper.

Wiles Greenworld London office supplies distributor and free recycling service provider believe that designing out waste is an essential part to sustainability and corporate responsibility. The green office supplies distributor has helped numerous customers reduce their carbon footprint by helping them cut out waste as part of their green office management.
