Aside from a few more models that use its namesake barefoot-mimicking sole, Nike Free 5.0 has most recently been associated with the WMNS V4 edition. That model has taken on quite a few patterned looks of late, but the newest release from the series goes in the opposite direction. Featuring monotone suede and mesh uppers plus contrasting Dynamic Flywire strands, the Nike Free 5.0+ EXT is somewhere between a Free-soled Air Max 2013 and an EXT version of the Powerlines 2. Hyper Blue, black, Medium and Cool Grey* (the only woven edition of the quartet) colorways are all depicted after the jump, so let us know which one looks best, then pre-order in advance of the April ship date from Titolo.

Nike dropping its partnership with Lance Armstrong set off a chain reaction whereby all but one of the (soon to be former) seven-time Tour de France champion’s top sponsors gave him the axe on Wednesday. Nike’s marketing prowess is unmatched, so when the Swoosh commits to LIVESTRONG and Lance’s namesake Foundation, we’re reminded that the fight against cancer is more important than all the bicycles in Europe. So as of this writing, Nike still plans to move forward with the 2013 LIVESTRONG collection, which boasts eight different footwear options including five of next year’s big new debuts. Joining the flagship LIVESTRONG x Nike Air Max+ 2013 will be the Air Max 95 Dynamic Flywire, LunarFly+ 4, LunarFlash+ and Zoom Vomero+ 9, joined by new styles for the Free 5.0+, Free Trainer 3.0 and 5.0.
