Nike Free Run +3 – Barefoot Running Shoe Déjà Vu!
Nike endorses barefoot running with its new Nike Free Run +3 with Dynamic Fit system. The shoe features a soft material that encloses the midfoot and arch of your feet and provides a snug fit. It also mimics the curve of the feet while adding extra support as well as making it more comfortable.
Most runners can adjust the fit through loosening or tightening the laces. Although the shoe is extremely lightweight, it can still offer you enough protection for any terrain. With its flexibility, support, comfort and style, Nike is definitely taking barefoot running to the next level!
