Designed as “one of the most versatile training shoes,” the men’s Nike Free Trainer 5.0 delivers lightweight comfort and support with a distinctive look for training in the gym, field or street. Designers Laura Parrett and Jeff Rasmussen took inspiration from the Chinese finger trap device, the upper consists of intertwined bands that are soft and pliable. When the foot is at rest, or moving forward or backward, the bands are flexible and compliant. However, when pressure is applied with side-to-side movements the bands engage and tighten around the foot for enhanced support.
The Nike Free Trainer 5.0 will be available globally March 28th at select retailers and Nike.com.
