One of Nike Running‘s most flexible, minimal styles, the Free Run Flyknit 3.0 has returned in three bold new makeups for 2020. Designed for athletes who like a “barefoot” feel, the 3.0 features a minimal heel-to-toe drop, a sock-like upper and a natural, intentionally unsupported ride, enabling a full range of motion through the wearer’s strides. Due to this minimal ethos and the interesting silhouettes that have grown from it, the Free Run Flyknit 3.0 has also become a popular choice for lifestyle wear — and the 2020 iteration’s new “Light Armory Blue/Dark Smoke Grey,” “Grey Fog/Volt” and “Black/Iron Grey” styles are sure to appease fans of both purposes.

Uppers are streamlined and sock-like, made of stretchy Flyknit material and featuring slits running down the throat in place of laces. These serve a dual purpose: they cut bulk and enhance breathability. Large heel tabs with technical Nike branding ensure an easy on/easy off fit, and T-shaped suede overlays that wrap around the heel provide a touch of support and a healthy dose of style, working in a debossed Swoosh to match the forefoot’s graphic.

From a looks standpoint, “Light Armory Blue/Dark Smoke Grey” mixes a powder blue base with black flecks. Volt stitching runs up to the collar, orange is present on the heel and the suede overlay adds more light blue. “Grey Fog/Volt” uses volt over the majority of its Flyknit, but adds cooling grey tones on the throat and heel, while “Black/Iron Grey” offers a murky mix of black and grey with small touches of blue.

Midsoles feature a wavy design, slightly podular in nature directly under the balls of the feet. From toe to heel, they’re cut with deep groves to allow for maximum flexibility and natural movement, all while saving a little extra weight.

The Nike Free Run Flyknit 3.0 is available at Nike JP now, and retails for a tax-included price of ¥15,400 JPY (approximately $138 USD).
