Introducing Nike Free RN Distance. Natural motion meets Lunarlon cushioning for freedom to go farther.
Where Nike Free Began
After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university’s golf course, three of Nike’s most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of runners’ feet in motion. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot’s natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
So meet the latest edition to the Nike Free family, the Free RN Distance, the first of free family to have a Lunarlon cushioning system that delivers miles of soft responsiveness. It fuses soft foam and a lightweight Phylon carrier to deliver an excellent blend of plush comfort and durable support to go the distance.
Single-layer, funky printed engineered knit helps keep your feet cool, while Flywire cables integrated with the laces wrap your arch for an adaptive, supportive fit.
The natural-motion outsole features hexagonal flex grooves that offer six points of flexibility while deconstructed mesh heel provides support and breathability, allowing your feet to move the way they were meant to. Solid rubber segments under the toe and heel enhance traction and durability.
