Nike Free Trainer 5.0 - New Images & Release Info (1)


At the end of next month, Nike will offer up its latest silhouette, the Nike Free Trainer 5.0. As Nike describes it:

While the woven upper has an eye-catching aesthetic, the shoe’s high-performance aptitude sets it apart. The dynamic fit moves with, adjusts to and supports the foot during the rigors of training.

Designed by Laura Parrett and Jeff Rasmussen, the sneaker is inspired by Chinese finger traps:

Like the toy, 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. When pressure is applied with side-to-side movements the bands engage and tighten around the foot for enhanced support.

Look for the design to release at select Nike retailers on March 28th.
