Nike is gearing up to release a new women’s variant of the Free TR, designed for training. When creating the sneaker, the Swoosh in turn focused on how the foot lands during common movements and where the foot sits in the shoe.
During testing, Nike was able to dissect the foot’s change of shape on impact and when loading. Furthermore, designers then “discovered that when arches collapse and toes get splayed, the contact area to the ground increases, which could lead to better stability,” says the company.
From there the goal was to increase stability in the heel and maximize flex and movement in the forefoot. For this, Nike subsequently designed the Free TR 3 women’s trainer from the ground up, ultimately enhancing seven areas: a dialed outsole, no-slip grip, easier impact, maximized motion, better containment, strategic lockdown, and new Flyknit feels.
Follow on over to Nike for a detailed breakdown of each aspect, as you can then look forward to the women’s Free TR 3 launching March 1.
