There is a trend nowadays in barefoot running, which strips all the technology away and challenges the modern athlete to run in the way our forefathers did. Everyone is moving closer, with Vibram the probable leaders in the pack, but now it’s Nike’s turn.

Nike Free Hyperfeel

Nike have released the Nike Free Hyperfeel in accordance with this new trend to bridge the gap between the training shoes and running barefoot, as ultimately the modern urban runner encounters some pretty harsh terrain for an evening or weekend jog, and those hard pavements, stairs and roads will take their toll on insteps & knees with no cushioning whatsoever.

The Nike Free Hyperfeel uses Nike’s Flyknit technology, where the Flywire cables provide support and comfort where needed by the user. There is a drop in Lunarlon insole for additional comfort and sectioned allowing for full flexibility, with the outersole and flyknit being extremely malleable with the overall intention being to capture the ethos of amplifying nature with the footwear acting as an extension of the foot.

The Nike Free Hyperfeel is released on 5 September and will be available at all major stockists. Check out the video below for more information.
