Nike Free RN Flyknit 2017 Running Shoes
The most barefoot-like and lightest of the Free family, the Nike Free RN Flyknit 2017 Running Shoe is ideal for short runs. A sock-like upper hugs your feet while an innovative sole lets your foot flex and expand naturally. And, their packable design is easy to stash in a tote or backpack – so you can pack in a few miles on the fly.
Flyknit uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the top increase airflow, creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. The one-piece construction seamlessly integrates these areas of high breathability with stretch and support where you need it the most, adapting to the changing shape of your foot as it moves through the gait cycle and reducing slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. Flywire technology woven into the upper integrates with the laces for a dynamic and supportive fit through the midfoot. The strong, yet feather-light, cables work with the laces to increase support as you tighten them. Cable has been removed at the first eyelet to allow for improved movement at the flex zone, promoting an even, uncaged ride. Stretch yarns are nestled between Flywire cables on the lateral side to provide increased stretch in this high expansion zone, while structured yarns on the medial side supply lightweight stability; uniting to enhance the snug, contoured fit of the Nike Free RN Flyknit. A reflective Swoosh completes the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those late-night road runs.
A minimal, moulded sockliner lies atop a low-profile midsole to mimic the curvature of the foot and add lightweight support. The Nike Free sole provides the feel of a minimalist running shoe. It moves with you, imitating the movement of your foot by expanding and contracting with every landing and push-off, for a natural feel. This injected unit of lightweight, yet durable, foam doubles as a midsole and outsole, drastically cutting down on weight while still delivering resilient protection. Its touch of cushion helps to attenuate shock as you power through the gait cycle, ample enough to spare your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces but modest enough to do so without weighing down your pace.
The anatomical heel is rounded to roll with the ground as you heel-strike, encouraging a more natural, uncaged stride. An auxetic tri-star outsole pattern, hot-knife cut into the foam platform, expands with your step to allow equal pressure dispersal, for flexible cushioning and an adaptive feel. Segments of solid rubber adorn the outsole to enhance traction and durability; placed under the toe and heel, they supply reliable grip across every surface, resisting the traumas of foot-strike and toe-off to provide you with a long-lasting running buddy. Deep flex grooves further enhance the bendy, barefoot feel of the shoe. For the athletes who crave clean lines and a precision fit, choose the Nike Free RN Flyknit 2017.
