Nike unleashes new Free range for fans of natural running and/or techy style
T3 Agenda brings you snippets of the latest tech news in an easily digestible format.
Rather than doing oodles of separate stories on various announcements, we’ll gather them all together on this page, updating daily as new gear is announced. Enjoy!
We were massive fans of Nike’s Free 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0 shoes, particuarly the latter, in black from the NikeLab limited edition range – ooh yeah.
Now, we are similarly massive fans of its replacements, which are built to flex, contract and expand as your foot moves and slams the pavement. They also happen to look fantastic, if maybe a little more colourful than our tired eyes can take on this dull day – but it’s okay, you can fix that via NikeID.
From left to right, then:
Nike Free RN Motion Flyknit (May 5), which is the most minimal shoe, kind of like the old 3.0. Putting it basically as we can, it’s just a high-tech, sock-like upper on a high-tech, flexible sole; a similar concept to the LunarEpic.
Nike Free RN Flyknit (April 7). This is more like the 4.0, with a midsole that “features the same expansive auxetic technology with new IU foam for additional under foot comfort.” Mmm-mm.
Nike Free RN (April 7). Like the above but with mesh instead of Flyknit.
Nike Free Train Force Flyknit (April 7). Like the above but with a mid-top type build for greater support, plus it looks bitching.
All the above can be customised, just so, via the NikeID service. We’ll take ’em in black, thanks.
