The sneaker that started it all is back with all the modern updates it deserves. Back in 2004, the Nike Free 5.0 introduced the natural motion concept to the world and has been an overwhelming success ever since. To commemorate 10 years of Nike Free, Nike Sportswear is dropping two new models by incorporating modern advances to improve the classics you know and love. The Nike Free Breath, and the Nike Free OG both use their existing natural motion tech combined with breathable materials for improved comfort and improved feel.
Inspired by runners training barefoot, the Nike Free Breath was designed to simulate the barefoot feeling while proving the appropriate amount of support. The double-sided mesh upper allows air to flow through the shoe for improved breathability, while it’s unstructured breathable upper was designed so runner’s can go sock less in the dead of summer and have no issue.
The Nike Free OG goes back to the roots of Nike Free and replicates the original silhouette. Nike updated the tongue from the original bootie to give a wider range of fit and improved comfort. The outsole was also updated to meet current Nike Free standards, but they kept it original with the synthetic suede, perforated upper and dynamic heel pocket.
Check out the multiple colorways of the Nike Free Breathe and Nike Free OG, as they will be available on Nike.com and at select retailers beginning April 1.
