Polyester silk is the most widely used fabric in the world.It is used in everything from clothes to shoes to furniture and, of course, in the manufacture of the iconic woven polyester canvas used in the films Star Wars, Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.But it is not the only fabric that has a high potential for stretching and tearing.Researchers at the University of Southern California ha...
By: Ben Wojick, Sports Illustrated / October 3, 2018 The sport of running is evolving, and a new type of running shoe is poised to change the way the sport is perceived.
The Mikada Silk fabric is a new fabric designed to stretch to an extraordinary limit in order to enhance its ability to resist the effects of moisture.
A team of scientists has created a new shoe that stretches far beyond normal running shoes and allows runners to stretch beyond their comfort zones.
The team has created the Mikado Silk running shoe, which will be unveiled at the 2018 Adidas IAAF World Championships on Friday.
Mikado is the Spanish word for silk.
It is also the term used in the Japanese language for silk, which is also known as kami-miku silk.
The new Mikado shoes have a lightweight mesh shell that offers great flexibility, which aids in a variety of running activities.
The mesh shell provides cushioning and ventilation, allowing the shoe to offer maximum comfort during long runs and short bursts of speed.
It also increases the flexibility of the shoe’s structure, which allows the wearer to bend the toe for more balance.
Mikados are typically made of silk woven by a number of artists in the European Union.
They are known for their ability to stretch, and their lightweight structure is made of the same silk fiber that is woven into shoes.
However, they also offer an amazing degree of flexibility.
According to Nike, the Mikados range can accommodate runners from 6 to 12 years old.
According the scientists, their flexibility makes the Mikados an ideal shoe for a wide range of athletic activities, such as triathlon, triathlon-style running, running for distance, and cycling.
The fabric is very stretchy, and can be stretched up to a staggering 10,000 times.
In the process, the fibers in the mesh shell allow the shoe fabric to expand and contract to accommodate varying degrees of foot and ankle pressure.
The researchers have also designed a shoe with a small, lightweight mesh lining for additional flexibility.
When the Mikads are stretched to their absolute limits, they stretch like a rubber band.
They stretch at speeds up to 7.2 miles per hour, with the top of the heel reaching around 40 degrees.
They can even extend to an incredible 20 miles per day.
This flexibility can be beneficial for people who suffer from Achilles tendonitis, which causes a tight tendon in the Achilles tendon, a condition that limits their movement.
In addition, when the Mikadas are stretched, the mesh creates a space for air to escape, which improves the ability of the wearer’s feet to breathe.
The scientists have also created a special cushioning system that will be tested on the runners during the Adidas IAA World Championships.
The system consists of four layers of mesh with elastic straps, which have been specifically designed to cushion the Achilles tendons of the foot, ankles, and knees.
In order to stretch as far as possible, the researchers used the Mikada as a template for the design of the new shoe.
They also designed the shoe with the help of the Nike Research Laboratory in Germany, which provides high-tech technologies to Nike and its partners to ensure their products stay at the cutting edge.
It was through the cooperation of Nike Research Lab, Adidas, and the IAAF that the Mikade shoe was created.
“The Mikadas are the best running shoes available,” said IAAF chief medical officer Dr. Michael T. Johnson.
“Their innovative and flexible design is going to change how runners experience running, allowing them to experience more power, speed, and control.”
Nike has already unveiled its Mikadus running shoes at the Adidas World Cup in Barcelona, Spain, in 2018, and in 2019 at the Nike IAAF world championships.
Adidas has yet to announce an official release date for the Mikaderas.
