Nike Free is built on a more anatomically shaped last than traditional running models – Free footwear lets feet flex, splay and move the way they want. This year, the 2019 Nike Free Running Collection introduces new elements that enable a more barefoot-like feel than previous versions.
The Nike Free features a smaller Swoosh which symbolizes the shoe’s lower-mileage intent and is fully utilized by Nike’s elite athletes to use for jogging and low-mileage track workouts. In 2019, the Nike Free Running Collection returns to its roots, with new design elements that enable a more barefoot-like feel than previous versions. The foam cushioning in the new Nike Free midsoles is firmer, flatter and lower to the ground, delivering greater connection and allows a more natural range of motion than before.
The Nike Free RN 5.0 is 26-percent more flexible and 2mm lower to the ground while the Nike Free RN Flyknit 3.0 is 1mm lower to the ground than the 2018 models. The minimal uppers, a thin-stretch mesh with a minimal lacing system for the 5.0 and a lace-less Nike Flyknit with a secondary lock-down overlay for the 3.0, were designed to enhance the natural, second skin aspect of the shoes.
The Nike Free RN 5.0 is priced at RM389 and Nike Free RN Flyknit 3.0 is priced at RM535 will be available at all participating Nike Store Partners and JD Sports.
