2013 Nike Free

This April, we’ll see a fresh take on the most popular Nike Free in the run specialty market. The first big change is to the name: gone is the Nike Free Run moniker, replaced with a new name that helps clarify where the shoe sits in Nike’s numerical designation of Free models. The shoe will now be known as the Nike Free 5.0+, meaning it is at the midpoint of Nike’s 0-10 scale between running barefoot and running in a conventional trainer.

This is a name change only and does not affect the performance or design intent of the prior Free Run model. For those of you who looked closely at your Nike Free Runs in the past, you may have noticed a “5.0” stamped onto the midsole by the heel. And in fact, the new Free 5.0+ carries over the platform of the prior model. All the changes to the shoe for 2013 occur in the upper. We expect weights to remain almost identical to the current model.

What to Watch For

  • Dynamic Fit: The improved Dynamic Fit system using integrated Flywire helps to hold the foot in place.
  • Goodbye NanoPly: The previous bonded overlays are replaced with new, no-sew construction and increased mesh areas.
  • Bootie Construction: The stretch-mesh upper provides a next-to-skin fit.
  • Carryover Platform: The Free 5.0+ keeps the mid/outsole of the Free Run+ 3, with its 8mm heel-to-toe offset.
