In the thirteenth year since the inception of the Nike Free technology, Nike launches the new Nike Free RN Flyknit 2017. The newest version brings you miles of comfort with a one-piece Flyknit constructed upper in a classic silhouette that delivers zoned stretch and support. The cables at the flex zone of the Free Rn Flyknit allows for unrestricted movement while the tri-star outsole pattern adjusts to your foot’s every step, delivering support and flexibility.
The concept of Nike Free was born in 2001, when insights from a legendary coach inspired designers to create footwear that mimicked the feel of barefoot training but incorporated important protection and support. The first expression of this study released in 2004 via a shoe with a siped outsole, comprised of deeply cut grooves that allowed the sole to flex freely and translate a barefoot-like feel to all surfaces.
