Expertly designed to mimic the foots natural movement, the Nike Free Run 5.0 is a truly innovative shoe for modern-day athletes. A robust lightweight, woven mesh upper provides optimum ventilation, allowing air to fully permeate the shoe's interior, whilst Flywire cables deliver a secure, stable and adaptive midfoot fit. A series of thin mesh panels distributed throughout the midfoot increase airflow, no-sew overlays provide support and durability without adding undue weight and a traditional tongue construction alleviates lacing pressure that can be exerted across the top of the foot.The Nike Free Run 5.0 trainer allows a more natural gait cycle, successfully conditioning tendons, ligaments and muscles, whilst developing stronger, healthier feet and an improved posture. Flexible, comfortable and on-trend styling, the Nike Free has gone from runners, to gym-goers, to street wearThe low-profile, Phylite midsole's robust construction allows it to also serve as the shoe's outsole, reducing the number of parts, potential fail points and weight. In a departure from previous iterations, flex grooves now adopt a hexagonal shape, thereby increasing the number of flex points to six, setting a precedent in natural motion. A minimal, moulded sockliner mimics the curvature of the foot for additional support whilst an 8mm heel-to-toe drop provides an ideal compromise between providing sufficient cushioning and accommodating a natural gait style.A series of waffle cut pistons work together with the Phylite midsole by absorbing impact and then returning to their original shape for added responsiveness. The heel has been rounded, adopting an anatomically beneficial shape that rolls with the ground and in turn promotes a more natural range of motion.
