INTRODUCTION

The Free 5.0+ Shield is a minimum featured, minimum neutral shoe designed for speedwork, racing, and daily training in all weather conditions. It is Nike+ sensor compatible.

CUSHIONING

  • Phylite uses a lightweight midsole material designed for a resilient ride with enough durability to double as an outsole.

MIDSOLE

  • Phylite uses a lightweight midsole material designed for a resilient ride with enough durability to double as an outsole.
  • Crash pad at the bottom of the heel is a decoupled, gender-specific unit that reduces impact shock and corrects over pronation.
  • Nike Free sipes uses gender-specific flex grooves to allow barefoot-like flexibility and stability.
  • Transtarsal Flex Grooves are deep outsole cuts running diagonally under the midfoot area for increased flexibility and mobility.

UPPER

  • H2O Repel Mesh is treated with DWR (durable water repellent) for a breathable and water-resistant shoe.
  • 360 degree Reflectivity covers the upper, making shoes highly visibile in low-light conditions. 
  • Dynamic Flywire provides necessary support and unmatched fit while reducing the shoes overall weight.
  • Dynamic Fit uses a supportive inner sleeve that wraps under the arch and around the midfoot for increased arch support and an adaptive fit.
  • Asymmetrical lacing wraps the foot to the shoe and relieves pressure over the top ridge of the foot.
  • Molded sockliner mimics the curvature of the foot for a closer fit and underfoot cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full-length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.

OUTSOLE

  • Waffle lugs built into the Phylite outsole compress on impact for increased cushioning. 
  • BRS 1000 carbon rubber provides durable traction.
