Nike Free 5.0+ Flash Trainer provides the foot strengthening benefits of natural motion, with the cushioning, traction and underfoot protection of a traditional shoe. Water resistance, reflectivity and a fleece collar make it ideal for the winter months.
Reflective Weather Protection
Highly reflective elements offer visibility in low light, and the three-layer mesh upper repels water without limiting breathability. For added warmth on your run, there's a micro fleece collar and tongue lining.
The flex groove outsole-made up of deep cuts along the length and width of the midsole-enhances natural range of motion, encourages a smooth, efficient stride and helps maintain stability.
A low-profile midsole delivers a natural barefoot-like feel. It features the highest offset offered by Nike Free running shoes, with an 8mm heel-to-toe drop that feels more barefoot than a traditional shoe while still offering excellent cushioning. Plus, the Phylite material in the midsole is tough enough to double as an outsole, dramatically reducing the shoe's overall weight.
The Nike Free 5.0+ is the most supportive of the Nike Free family thanks to ultralight Flywire technology. This updated version of Flywire consists of soft yet durable cables that wrap the midfoot and arch for a glove-like, supportive fit that adapts to your stride.
Nike Free Origins
After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university's golf course, three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion.
The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
Nike Running is a company founded in 1972 in Oregon, USA by runners, for runners, Nike revolutionised the concept of cushioning in shoes with it's patented 'Air' technology in 1979, and some of the most famous running shoes ever have featured the famous Swoosh logo, including the iconic Nike Air Pegasus.
As part of an ongoing quest for innovation and improving the experience for runners at every level, the brand launched Nike Plus in 2006. This allows real-time tracking of data during runs which is then stored as an online log, with each member becoming part of a global running community. Initially launched to be compatible with the Apple ipod nano for runners who love music, it was extended in 2008 to include the Nike Plus Sportband for runners who chose to move without music.
Nike started as a running company and in the words of one of the company's earliest print advertisements. 'There is no Finish Line...'
