It’s the time of year where everything is fresh, blossoming, and full of energy. Springtime thrives on growth and renewal. With that said, the evolution of the Nike Free continues on this month. The Free has maintained its position as the quintessential sneaker that is perfect for all lifestyles. Admit it, whether you wear your Frees for casual or performance, you can never have too many in your rotation.
This year, Nike is going above and beyond the basic upgrade with a few minor tweaks. They’re rolling out a brand new model to add to the Free lineup. The Nike Free RN features lightweight mesh and seamless Hyperfuse to bond the materials. Flywire supports the medial and lateral sides of the foot through the lace loops which has been a staple in the last few Free models.
The game changer in this year’s Free runs are the new sole. The latest innovation from the Swoosh is an auxetic foam which is arranged with polygonal flex grooves. These geometrical patterns work together and rotate with respect to each other. As the runner strides, the foam is loaded with tension. This tension causes expansion in all directions which delivers a plush and more natural ride.
For all of you Flyknit fanatics, there will also be a Nike Free RN Flyknit available. This model will feature the brand new full length Nike Free sole with a distinctive knit patterned Flyknit upper. These two pieces will work symbiotically to create the perfect barefoot feel while delivering undeniable style.
Ladies, the Nike Free Transform is also coming soon. A new training model that is quite impressive. With a sock-like collar and hollowed out core between the outsole and midsole, this design is sure to make some waves for all Nike Free fans. This shoe will put your training style into overdrive, because with the new sole and comfort of Nike Free technology, you’re set to take on whatever comes your way.
