Since its debut in 2004, NIKE FREE and natural motion technologies have redefined running footwear design. NIKE’s Sport Research Lab and the Innovation Kitchen used their findings on barefoot running to create a training tool in NIKE FREE. On the FREE scale, 0.0 represents running bare foot, while 10.0 represents a typical technical NIKE running shoe.
This summer, Nike delivers the sequel to the NIKE FREE Run+ silhouette — NIKE FREE Run+ 2 QS. The collection includes five Free Run+ 2 colorways recognizing the true elements of cities New York, London, Tokyo, Shanghai and Rio de Janeiro.
Each colorway features a speckled grey Phylite midsole speaking to the gritty concrete surfaces of the city. Deep Burgundy represents China, Pine Green captures Rio de Janeiro’s grit and flair, Anthracite’s starkness is quintessentially New York, Black channels Tokyo street style, while London’s version of the Free Run+ 2 arrives in a gentlemanly Khaki.
For those who can’t wait until summer, have fun customizing your own pair of NIKE FREE running sneakers at www.nike.com.
