Many agree that Nike’s Flyknit shoes are one of the brands best and most comfortable creations, though it’s lack of support certainly would not be something our podiatrists would want you working out in, but the technology is very cool.

Now Nike has found a way to customize their Flyknit technology to fit for your very own two feet! Even differences between your right and left foot will be accommodated.

Currently called the “Portable Steaming System for Articles of Footwear,” the device uses steam to customize how a pair of Flyknits fit an individual owner.  The soft, stretchy shoe material is designed to mimic the feel of a sock, offering a snug fit that can go nearly unnoticed by the wearer. The sneakers has been around since 2012 and sells for $130 to $270, depending on the model. Amazingly Nike has more than 190 different pairs on its site.

This article offers a glimpse of what we have to look forward in the future of shoes and their technology, and check out the steam machine in action, it’s rather wild looking!

    I've already told Dr. Campbell that I think he's great. He listens to his patients and has a very cool, low-key approach that is genuine and comforting.

    Exceptional care! The therapist really pays you personal attention. Something I especially liked was being asked my expectations for physical therapy at the onset of the treatment.

    Dr. Briskin is the best! My various foot concerns lasted 1.5 years so I had the opportunity to see a lot of Dr. Briskin. He's an excellent surgeon and a lovely person. I'd recommend him to any friend or family member...
