Light, breathable, slip-on shoes are practically tailor-made for summer style. But in an interesting turn of events, the Swoosh’s latest to hit all those notes isn’t a lifestyle silhouette at all — it’s a performance trainer.
The Nike Free Train Connect features a wide-open one-piece mesh construction on the upper, hugging the foot while keeping ventilation paramount. A unique diagonal strap stretches from forefoot to midfoot, locking in the wearer, and the new tri-star Free sole offers a natural, barefoot fit and feel.
The Nike Free Train Connect releases on June 2, retailing for $100. Alas, this one’s a women’s exclusive.
