When it comes to Nike wristbands, why are premier wristbands better then awoken wristbands. I have a pair of single wide premier and two pairs of doublewide swoosh kind. I think they feel they same

i've wondered about this too. the premier ones from the us open have 95% nylon 4% rubber and 1% spandex but the ones on nike.com are 96% nylon and 4% spandex. the ones from the open feel much softer

Last year's US open wristbands material was 96% nylon and 4% spandex.
Seems like Nike changed their material in this year.
Last year material feels slightly better in my opinion (almost same feeling though.)
I am just surprised that how the textile technology is improved.
I've never thought that nylon can be softer than cotton.

i thought most people would wear the nike swoosh double wide ones with 72% cotton, 10% Nylon, 10% Rubber, 8% Spandex. arent the pros wearing this?
