Nike’s Thermo-Molded Sneakers: Stitch-Free Kicks

Nike Sportswear has released the Vac Tech Collection constructed using a thermo-molding technique, a kind of “vacuum compression method” that presumably fuses the components together without any noticeable seams or stitching.

I’d love to see how these things are made (yeah, I know, fat chance). Anyone out there got a video of the manufacturing process? Maybe something cool like this?
