Prior to the age of high-tech runners such as the AlphaFly NEXT% and VaporFly NEXT%, Nike and its extensive range of Free Run models were among the most popular of silhouettes during the early 2000s. And quite surprisingly, it appears as though the Beaverton-located imprint will be bringing new life to one of these models this year with the revival of the Nike Free Run Trail.

The lightweight, barefoot-simulating offering has resurfaced into our midst, this time taking on a playful “Happy Pineapple” theme. A tropical “Coconut Milk” tone is in charge of coloring in the base layer’s outer suede shell. Concealed underneath is a “Lime Glow” mesh layer, that of which is visible through the aforementioned suede’s ventilated holes punched out on the lateral and medial walls. This extra-vibrant tone is also utilized for the Swooshes, heel paneling, sock liners and lace loops. Its fruity moniker is communicated through the cartoon-like pineapple character that is embroidered into the tongues. Moreover, the footbeds are made up of cork material, and comes dressed up with retro Nike pinwheel logos.

Downstairs, the extra-flexible sole units are given a light tan background and come packaged with trail-ready textures.

A closer look at the pair is available up top, and note that these will be releasing in the coming months via Nike and select retailers.

Elsewhere in the world of sneakers, official photos of the KITH x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Paris” have emerged.
