Nike Free Flyknit+

Combining two of Nike’s novel technologies – Free and Flyknit – Nike’s predictably-named Free Flyknit+ offers up one hell of a natural feel. With ultra-flexible Free soles, these runners let your feet move much more freely than their hard-soled counterparts, building on muscles long neglected by traditional footwear. Combine this with a lightweight and compressive Flyknit upper that secures your foot over all of its range of motion and you’ve got yourself a shoe not far off from a sock in terms of feel – albeit a sock with a sole. They’re also Nike+ compatible, and aren’t exactly slouches in the looks department, either.
