Nike Free Trail 2012 Winter Collection

The Nike Free Trail first arrived on the scene almost seven years ago, a time when the Free scene was still in its infancy and populated only by 3.0s, 4.0s and 7.0s. The Free Trail itself was intended to take wearers off-road, as evidenced by its beefier, SFB boot-like sole, which today would sit somewhere between a 5.0 and standard Nike performance shoe. Sock-like, the sneaker’s uppers were constructed from a perforated, dual-layer mesh and suede combination — the mesh underlay provided a one-piece booty-like fit, while the suede overlay added durability and ruggedness. This Free classic returns for Winter 2012 in a duo of strong colorways — dark obsidian, orange and red, along with a murdered-out version perfect for this time of year. Reintroduced by Nike at the pinnacle of the barefoot shoe movement, these especially timely pieces of sneaker history will be available soon at retailers like Crooked Tongues.
