I tried the new Nike FlyKnit shoes this morning in a sponsored event with Kate Hiipacka, Shred co-founder and felt the shoes were lightweight, comfortable and really close to a barefoot feel. These shoes look like they are on fire with the colors or orange to red blasts and feel great running on the treadmill too.

About Nike Free:
The 2014 Nike Free running collection makes a performance statement echoing those famous words from coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. His belief was that design should focus on the athlete’s body and movement. His convictions inspired a design philosophy around the concept of natural motion and sparked the idea for the paradigm-shattering Nike Free introduced in 2004. The 2014 collection pulls from biomechanics research and athlete insight to deliver a new anatomical shape is enhanced with Nike Flyknit technology to provide a supportive, contoured fit and the hexagonal flex groves deliver multidirectional flexibility. Join us at Nike Chicago to run free.
