Promoting the bare-foot running technique, this Nike design aims to mimic natural front-foot landing.
Believe it or not, but without shoes, we run on the balls of our feet. Yet, when we put on our joggers, our foot is suddenly being forced to land on our heels, causing serious damage to our spine and lower leg joints.
Nike have taken this into consideration by producing a light-weight running shoe, that does not aim to alter your foot landing, nor overcompensate for the natural landing of our feet whilst running. The 7.0 shoe was created for those who love the feel of bare-foot running and require a shoe to do what it was supposed to do, protect your feet, not change the natural stride of our bodies.
The shoe is highly flexible, and works with the motion of our feet. Weighing at only 238 grams, (Mens size 10) the shoe fits snugly to your feet with or without socks. It is made with breathable mesh on the upper layer, only enhancing the natural barefoot feel. The updated version from the 5.0 sports additional rubber in key impact zones, not for more support, but instead traction for cross country running.
If you love the idea of your body running the way it was supposed to, instead of having your foot landing changed by an over developed shoe, this Nike design will give you that freedom.
