The 2014 Nike Free running collection makes a performance statement echoing those famous words from coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. Bowerman’s belief was that design should focus on the athlete’s body and movement. His convictions inspired a design philosophy around the concept of natural motion and sparked the idea for the paradigm-shattering Nike Free introduced in 2004.
Ten years later, advancements in technology and product engineering continue to push the boundaries of footwear design even further in the all-new Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit, Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit, and Nike Free 5.0.
The collection allows runners to choose the desired level of flexibility and close-to-the-ground ride.
on NIKEiD, runners can customize the performance options between the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit and Nike Free 5.0, changing the uppers and outsoles to deliver their optimal fit and ride. Each of the four silhouettes – Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit iD, Nike Free 5.0 iD, Nike Free 5.0 Flyknit Hybrid iD (a Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit upper paired with a Nike Free 5.0 outsole) or Nike Free 4.0 Hybrid iD (a Nike Free 5.0 upper with a Nike Free 4.0 outsole) – can be personalized with a unique color palette and custom message on the tongue.
The Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit, Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit and Nike Free 5.0 will be available on Nike.com and in stores beginning April 3.
