Nike launches new collection of Nike FREE running shoes for 2016

Nike Free RN Motion Flyknit, Nike Free RN Flyknit, Nike Free RN

Fresh for the spring season, Nike releases a new collection of Nike Free shoes – building on twelve years of Free tradition.

The idea is that new studies seem to suggest that the foot expands and contracts during “landing” on the ground. The new midsole design allows the sole to expand both in length and width on each individual pod at the time of contact with the ground.

Here’s a picture of the new outsole:
