Nobody reading this probably has any qualms with calling sneakers art, a connection that Nike has been embracing more and more through their innovative delivery of various silhouettes. The Nike Free sole system is definitely one such work of art, a fluid motion system designed for maximum flexibility in mimicry of the human foot. As a means of presenting the new Nike Free Run+ 3 Nike recently held an event in Beijing celebrating the sneaker and its predecessors, with a presentation by Nike Running lead designer Mark Miner, on location Nike iD sessions, and a preview of what’s in store for the line. Click through for a photo tour of the exhibit courtesy of Freshness, who also has some nice slide shows of some more of the art on location.

In the world of running it’s always a good idea to keep in mind what’s coming around the next bend. With that in mind, we’re hooking you up with a preview of whats next from the Nike Free line for 2012. In 2011 we saw the Nike Free technology extended to models like the Huarache and the Trainer 1.3, but Nike hasn’t abandoned the flag bearer for this flexible technology, coming with the Nike Free Run+ 3 for next year. The lightweight runners feature a more centered swoosh, and a partitioned construction vs. this year’s weblike design. Clocking in at a mere 8.7 ounces for a size 10, they seem to be shaving off whatever they can weight-wise to make these the ultimate frees. Take a full look after the jump and let us know if you’ll be copping a pair come Summer 2012. via CK
