Nike has just debuted the Free Trainer 3.0 V4. The sneakers have a unique directional flexibility and increased strength for quickness of movement in all directions, an upgrade from its predecessor, the Free Trainer 3.0 V3, which was released earlier this year. V4 of the sneaker also has an entirely revamped upper backed by an internal heel counter. The sneakers feature a circular knit mesh which helps with flexibility when taking part in sports activities like jumping, running, and lifting. This makes the sneaker unlike any other shoe on the market.
The Nike Product Line Manager in Athletic Training Footwear Tim Day explains the design: ‘The circular knit material in the upper creates a one-to-one fit against the foot. This prevents slippage when an athlete is changing direction. When the foot is securely locked down, athletes can transition much faster while cutting and breaking… We designed this for athletes who want to be fast in all directions. It’s incredibly lightweight and low to the ground, making it extremely stable and responsive. Being lower to the ground also allows for quicker bursts and more explosive movements.’
The new Nike Free Trainer 3.0 V4 will soon be available at the Nike website and at select retailers.
