FREE-FLOWING COMFORT, EVEN IN THE RAIN.
When the rain starts, the Nike Free RN 2017 Shield Men's Running Shoe helps keep your feet dry. Ideal for short runs, the innovative sole lets your foot flex and expand naturally. And, they're easy to pack in a tote or backpack so you can carry them wherever you go, rain or shine.
The one-piece fabric upper with a water-repellent finish helps keep rain out so your feet stay dry. A breathable membrane lines the inside, allowing air to flow to help keep your feet from overheating.
The Nike Free sole provides the feel of a minimalist running shoe. It moves with you, mimicking the movement of your foot by expanding and contracting with every landing and push-off, for a natural feel.
Strong, yet feather-light Flywire cables work with the laces to provide more support as you tighten them. A set of cables has been removed from the top lace to allow for a smoother, less distracting feel when you bend at the forefoot.

Nike Free Origins
After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot, 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 four 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.
