Nike just keeps pushing the envelope when it comes to the latest sneaker technology and their latest Free Flyknit sneaker might be their most comfortable shoe ever! They recently released the Free Flyknit at their Beaverton, Oregon headquarters and are meant to be performance shoes with an an ultra comfortable Free+ 5.0 midsole that’s combined with an ultra lightweight Flyknit upper. Nike talked to runners to find out what they wanted most form a sneaker and then embarked on a four-year mission to create its Flyknit technology, while taking another 8 years to get their Nike Free technology right to o build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
Nike’s Free Flyknit features a sock-like fitting around one’s ankle, allowing the sneakers to literally fit you like a glove or second skin! Nike’s Second-Skin Fit provides a compressive, second-skin fit that secures your foot over the Nike Free midsole. It’s made entirely of polyester yarn,and the one-piece upper seamlessly integrates areas of high breathability, stretch and support where you need it most. The shoe also provides the ultimate flexibility thanks to its Nike Free 5.0 midsole with flex grooves to promote natural motion and help increase stability and foot strength. And, of course, the sneaker offers lightweight support that will adapt to your foot’s movements. You can pre-order your Free Flyknit’s now in a variety of color combinations for $160. They will officially be released on August 1st.
