The New Nike Free 5.0 Sneaker
Designed as one of the most versatile training shoes, the men’s Nike Free Trainer 5.0 delivers lightweight comfort and supportive lockdown with a distinctive look for training in the gym, field or street.
While the woven upper has an eye-catching aesthetic, the shoe’s high-performance aptitude sets it apart. The dynamic fit moves with, adjusts to and supports the foot during the rigors of training.
Designers Laura Parrett and Jeff Rasmussen took inspiration from the Chinese finger trap device. Like the toy, the upper consists of intertwined bands that are soft and pliable. When the foot is at rest or moving forward or backward the bands are flexible and compliant. When pressure is applied with side-to-side movements the bands engage and tighten around the foot for enhanced support.
The Nike Free Trainer 5.0 will be available from April 1 at selected retailers and at www.nikestore.com.au
