The Nike Free RN 5.0 is designed mainly for low mileage sprints (around 3 miles), with heel-to-toe grooves that allow multi-directional flexibility, the designers reduced the weight and upped mobility by literally cutting the heel out of the shoe, a lightweight stretch mesh was added to help secure the silhouette.
To help set the foot free and allowing a full range of motion and using all of your 52 muscles in your foot the Nike Free RN 5.0 is designed with 26% more flexibility than the previous model.
The Nike Free is a low-profile midsole that allows your foot more engagement with the ground with each step. With flexibility that encourages your foot to flex and move exactly the way it wants to, more often, more freely and more naturally.

The outsole has been was carefully sculpted to mimic the shape of the bare foot, then sliced to mimic the way it moves naturally. Improved channels are cut in to the Shield version to improve the shedding of water in wet conditions.
