Nike have cleverly combined the second skin fit of the ‘flyknits’ with the flexibility of their ‘free’ line to deliver the ultimate super natural experience. For many around the world who already own a pair of flyknit’s, free’s or both will fully appreciate this awesome yet inevitable marriage. For those less familiar, please read further.
FREE FLYKNIT BREAKDOWN
Second Skin Fit
Nike Flyknit upper has delivered a compressive, second-skin fit that is known to secure your foot over the Nike Free midsole. This running shoe is made entirely of polyester yarn.
The one-piece upper seamlessly integrates areas of high breath ability, stretch and support where the runner needs it most.
The upper, midsole and outsole work together to create a more natural barefoot like experience. For ultimate flexibility, the shoe’s Nike Free 5.0 midsole features flex grooves to promote natural motion and help increase stability and foot strength.
Ultra-light Flywire cables are woven into the Flyknit upper and connect to the laces, offering a dynamic, supportive fit that adapts to your foot’s movements.
Other benefits of this shoe includes a moulded sock liner that mimics the foot’s curvature for a more all round comfortable fit, a durable Phylite midsole that doubles as an outsole for reduced shoe weight.
Available in five different colours in both the Men’s and Women’s range, these bendable lil beauts will cost you £130.00 here in the UK and $160 in the US. Despite the high price tag, I still think it is a good investment for people within the running community after that natural, flexibility feel.
If you are still unsure weather this shoe should be a part of your ‘Kit Essentials’ below is a short video giving you an insight Into The Design.
