The Nike Free has been around over a decade and what started off as Tobie Hatfield (Tinker’s brother) and Eric Avar’s barefoot running concept has revolutionized the blend of technical and fashion running sneakers ever since. In 2002, students at Stanford were training barefoot on the campuses golf course when The Swoosh came with an answer that could hold up to their intense training. The shoes design was so on point, people were willing to buy them full price just to rock as a style piece as well.
In 2015, the aesthetics are just as important as the performance and some of the most stylish people put together their favorite looks with the latest Nike Free models. Don’t sleep, make sure you head over to Finish Line and keep a pair of Frees in rotation whether it’s to run a few miles or for everyday casual.
