10 year's of Nike Free


By Zama Gabela The legendary NIKE free range is celebrating 10 years of its iconic debut. Designed to have a “barely there” effect the aim of the shoe is to honour the body and the concept of motion. With a design that is inspired by barefoot running, the breathability component is what it’s all about. The new NIKE Free Breath is designed to alter the way that footwear feels. Co-founder of NIKE Bill Bowman once said, “It’s all about the feet, it’s not about the shoes.” The design philosophy that he created of natural motion is based on his belief that shoes should not be distracting or weigh heavily on the foot but rather protect and provide a good grip.
