Nike is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Free sole technology by introducing three new iterations: the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit, Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit, and nike free 5.0 flyknit. We got our hands on one of them early: the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit. Offering more cushioning than the Free 3.0 Flyknit, it’s got an ultra light upper and a low-profile sole which promotes natural movement and stability. The new sole introduces redesigned hexagonal flex grooves for mobility, with the added benefit of rolling the same way your feet do, and a new heel that offers a more natural foot strike.
Since its initial launch back in 2012 around the London Olympics, the nike free rn flyknit has seen itself dressed up as a runner, a racer, and the highly coveted HTM with Lunar. However, it wasn't until recently, with the announcement of the Nike Flyknit Free, that Nike truly took the technology to the next level. What may at first glance appear to be just a hybrid silhouette is Nike offering a better version of the two. Sometimes one plus one is more than two.
