Nike Free 3.0 V3 – "Lightweight flexibility. All-round control"
Inspired by the training ethos of legendary Stanford running coach Vin Lananna, the NIKE FREE 3.0 V3 offers the best of both worlds: the feel and freedom of barefoot running, coupled with excellent support and premium lightweight cushioning. The result is the lightest and most flexible FREE 3.0 to date; a shoe which allows you to move with speed and confidence in any direction.
Minimalist in design, the FREE 3.0 V3 incorporates a Mesh and Synthetic Upper, Hexagonal Flex Grooves, Waffle Outsole Pistons and a super low-profile Phylite Midsole. A 4mm Offset between heel and forefoot – which is the lowest drop of any NIKE FREE running shoe – also offers a solid blend of ride and performance, marrying natural footstrikes with greater cushioning for a minimal ride that’s still supportive.
This edition of the shoe, which returns in a new colour-way for 2015, boasts a seamless one piece upper made entirely of Polyester Yarn for lightweight support and a contoured, sock-like fit. While the inclusion of Flywire Technology at the midfoot ensures a locked-down feel throughout the upper. No-Sew Synthetic Overlays also bolster the shoe’s structural integrity without adding extra weight to the chassis.
The shoe’s Hexagonal Flex Groove design is hot-knife cut into the sole for greater flexibility and offers six different Flex Points for the ultimate in natural motion. Nike have also elected to include Waffle Pistons on the outsole of the 3.0 V3 to absorb excess impact force and improve responsiveness.
The heel of the FREE 3.0 has also been revised to adopt a more anatomical shape which improves gait efficiency and encourages the foot to roll more naturally with the ground. Abrasion-resistant Carbon Rubber has also been added to high-wear areas of the outsole for enhanced durability and superior control.
Combining flexibility with speed and cushioning, the NIKE FREE 3.0 V3 is a remarkably versatile shoe that’s suitable for a wide range of workouts from short distance sprints to high-mileage runs.
