CUSHIONING

  • To keep weight down, this shoe contains no additional cushioning technologies.

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

  • Knit Construction features a one piece, overlay-free upper, resulting in a seamless and sock-like fit.
  • Dynamic Flywire provides necessary support and unmatched fit while reducing the shoes overall weight.
  • 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.

Comments:I've tried the 3.0, 4.0, and free 5.0 without much success in the past so my expectations were pretty low when I purchased this shoe. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at how good the upper feels and natural the toe-off is (I'm an under pronator and mid-forefoot striker). I rotate these with the lunaracer, zoom elite 6, and a pair of vomero 8's and have found them to be a great shoe for running fast or slow in. My only complaint is the price which is ridiculous unless RW has them on sale, imo. I run about 60 mpw, am 5 ft 8 in and weigh about 170 lbs.
