Nike lacks a true high-cut Flyknit training model. There’s the Flyknit Chukka, sure, or the Free Flyknit Mercurial, but those aren’t really performance models, per se, more predicated on fashion than training. The Nike Free Train Force Flyknit looks to change all that.
The confluence of some of the Swoosh’s most revered technologies, the Nike Free Train Force Flyknit sports an all-Flyknit construction, similar in weave and layout to the upcoming Free RN Motion. Here however, that Flyknit build is topped with a chukka-height sock-like collar, delivering a more natural feel and offering a proprioceptive fit. Flywire cradles the foot meanwhile, locking down without impeding movement and syncing up through the laces.
Finally, the Nike Free Train Force Flyknit is built atop the new auxetic Free sole, typified by hexagonal flex grooves and a hollow core that offers trampoline-like bounce back. Like we said, this one’s got it all.
Check out the first two colorways of the Free Train Force Flyknit below, and keep it locked to NB for a release date, likely in early April.
