Nike Free Trainer 5.0: Who Said They Are Just For Men?

The Nike Free Trainer sneakers version 5.0 are impossibly cool, colorful, and even though they are launched as men's trainers, there are many women in love with this sneaker. After all, a mixture of masculine and feminine elements never hurts.

Among many others, this are the three main benefits of wearing a Nike Free Trainer 5.0: Dynamic-fit technology for a glove-like fit, natural motion design to deliver a barefoot-like feel with resilient cushioning and aggressive rubber nodes on the sole that provide multi-surface traction.
Nike designers are committed to constantly improving footwear to help athletes achieve peak performance while looking their best. Frees are awesome sneakers because even though they're for all-around training, they're acceptable as street-wear. The evolved approach to maximizing the support and natural motion intuitive to training comes to life in the Nike Free Trainer 5.0


These Nike sneakers are lightweight, breathable and they're made of high-tech material that hugs your feet. The shoe's woven upper has an eye-catching aesthetic — its high-performance aptitude sets it apart. The men’s Nike Free Trainer 5.0 delivers lightweight comfort and supportive lockdown with a distinctive look for training in the gym, field or street. Pair its high performance potential with the customization of NIKEiD for a dynamic combination. 

With NIKEiD, you can choose from many colors, with such as a variety of colors it is impossible to think of this sneaker as just for men. You can also customize the outsole traction. Numerous color options abound for the upper, while all three outsole options have a DiamondFLX traction pattern for flexible, multidirectional grip. 

The solid and translucent rubber outsoles come in a wide array of colors, while the XDR outsole—designed specifically for outdoor training—features rubber pods configured in an aggressive pattern for extra traction and durability. Furthermore, the tongue top can also be customized with a name and number.

Designers Laura Parrett and Jeff Rasmussen took inspiration from the Chinese finger trap device while designing the Nike Free Trainer 5.0. Like the toy, the upper consists of intertwined bands that are soft and pliable. When the foot is at rest or moving forward or backward, the bands are flexible and compliant. When pressure is applied with side-to-side movements the bands engage and tighten around the foot for enhanced support.

The Nike Free Trainer 5.0 is available globally on NIKEiD.com.
