A month or so ago, NIKE put the FREE TRAINER 5.0 in both the Black / White and the Blue / Yellow colourways up on their site. The Blue / Yellows had a status of ‘Coming Soon’, which doesn’t happen very often. Then, after a week or so they disappeared. Which left us head scratching. Then completely unannounced, they’re back, and that makes us happy.
The Blacks were immediately available, but after the digital images of the Blue / Yellows kept cropping up, the interest has definitely been directed towards the statement colourway of the shoe. A shoe that is born from the art of the japanese Finger trap, a unique weaving technique that tightens when stressed and remains lose when relaxed.
Paired with the Free 5.0 sole unit, this shoe is as tech as they come. Pretty much every aspect of the construction has a reason. From the Diamond Flex design of the outsole to the seam-free contours of the upper. There’s a whole lot going on, and the video below describes things best, so we wont harp on about the stuff that the short clip says in pretty much half the time.
The NIKE FREE TRAINER 5.0 is available now in the four strong colourways featured, and can be found via the click-through below.
