The Nike Free Woven shoe takes a lightweight, flexible running style and puts a colorful spin on it – this time contributing both a green and blue colorway to a palette already defined by a handsome black/sail interpretation. 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. 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 – thus allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out. Squadron Green, Blue and Black colorways of the hybrid silhouette are now available online for $140 USD each.
