Nike Free 5.0+
This highly flexible minimalist shoe offers exceptional cushioning thanks to its plush midsole. Nike wisely specs an 8 mm drop that encourages a more mid-foot strike while remaining appealing to both conventional and minimalist runners. The upper features Nike’s unique Dynamic Flywire construction that does a great job of anchoring the mid-foot without adding extra weight or bulk. While the shoe’s highly flexible construction may not be suitable for some triathletes during longer runs, it does offer some significant foot strengthening benefits when used in shorter training sessions.
