This week Nike follows up on their hugely successful Free Run+ 2 with the Free Run+ 3 and Free 3.0. For the month of March the new sneakers will available exclusively online at NIKEiD and in NIKEiD studios at select Nike stores. Runners can customize performance by mixing the uppers and outsoles from the two styles to create Nike Free iD Hybrids, in addition to personalizing the colors and design.
The Nike Free Run+ 3 offers a unique balance of flexibility, comfort and support. Its Dynamic Fit construction wraps the arch for a glove-like fit that provides support where the runner needs it. The siping along the length and width of the midsole allows for natural motion and mimics the characteristics of barefoot running.
On a scale from a bare foot to a traditional running shoe, the Nike Free 3.0 delivers the closest to a truly barefoot experience. It features a seamless upper made of flexible but supportive mesh and a molded sock-liner that mimics the curvature for a great fit and comfort.
Both the Nike Free Run+ 3 and the Nike Free 3.0 feature arch siping new to this iteration of Nike Free running shoes. The trans-tarsal diagonal cuts in the midsole enhance natural motion flexibility and help increase foot strength.
