Nike partnered with Vibram to include the brand’s technology and sole design in the upcoming release of its Ultrafly Trail shoe which offers a carbon flyplate between the shoe’s ZoomX foam and a fabric-wrapped midsole.

The outsole of  Nike’s Ultrafly Trail shoe debuts Vibram’s Litebase technology with a proprietary lightweight outsole design, Vibram’s traction lug technology and MegaGrip compound.

“We are thrilled to partner with Nike, a brand that shares our passion for excellence. Together, we are expanding the trail running community by combining Vibram’s highly desired innovations with Nike’s world-class running footwear,” said Fabrizio Gamberini, global chief brand officer and president of Vibram Corp.

Nike will release in limited quantities the Ultrafly Trail shoe in Europe beginning July 27 and globally in late January at and select specialty retailers.
