The new Nike Free Trainer 1.0 is officially introduced, as the silhouette is intended keep you low to the ground during your workouts, almost as if you’re barefoot.
With this inaugural colorway dubbed, “Chalk for Your Feet,” the shoe’s lightweight rubber outsole, essentially wraps around the edges of the foot for an agile grip on any training surface, which is similar to the grip that chalk provides athletes in the gym.
The sneaker is also designed with a zero-millimeter offset to make your foot muscles work harder, enable natural motion and offers a barefoot-like feel overall. Further detailed with dynamic flywire and zero-drop foam midsole to ensure lockdown and lateral stability, responsive cushioning in the sockliner is also added to offer comfort.
You can find this latest pair at select Nike accounts starting tomorrow, November 4th, with additional colorways to follow on November 18th.
The design is pretty sleek and intense. I’ve never purchased a pair of these type of sneakers, but aesthetically, they look appealing. So far, I’m fine with using regular bball sneakers at the gym.
