A low-profile midsole delivers a natural barefoot-like feel.
It features the highest offset offered by Nike Free running shoes, with an 8mm difference between heel and forefoot height for greater cushioning while still promoting a natural stride. Plus, the Phylite material in the midsole is tough enough to double as an outsole, dramatically reducing the shoe's overall weight.
The Nike Free 5.0+ is the most supportive of the Nike Free family thanks to ultra-light Flywire technology.
This updated version of Flywire consists of soft yet durable cables that wrap the midfoot and arch from underneath the foot for a glove-like, supportive fit that adapts to your stride.
