Nike Free Trainer 5.0

Nike’s latest Free Trainer 5.0 maintains their signature ultra-flexible, barefoot-like feel thanks to a slotted sole and diamond flex design extending from toe to heel. Where they differ from their predecessor, though, is by use of soft intertwining bands – inspired by Chinese finger traps – that extend your laces’ influence, remaining flexible and compliant in forward motion but tightening around the foot during side-to-side movements when needed most. The fact that they look awesome doesn’t hurt, either.
