In honor of the tenth anniversary of Nike Free, the Swoosh introduces two new models in the Nike Free Breathe and Nike Free OG aimed at not just the running-minded but at the casual lifestyle market as well. Each pair takes inspiration from a natural running motion with the Nike Free Breathe aimed to give the wearer a barefoot feel thanks to the double sided mesh allowing air to flow through the sneaker. The Nike Free OG sticks to the roots, grabbing inspiration from the Nike Free 5.0 with an updated NSW outsole for a moden aesthetic. What do you think of each pair?

We loved Nike’s last go around with Hurley in the form of the Nike Air Max 90 ‘Phantom 4D’, but it’s nice to see that this time around they selected a bit more of a contemporary model to reflect the action sports nature of their partner here. That model is the Nike Free Run 3+, with this specific pair being helped out by the likes of contemporary artist Dalek, a man whose had his hands in no shortage of classic Nike releases. The pair come with the NRG designation meaning they’ll be on the limited side, but some number will be up for grabs on Nikestore so all is not lost if tehy’re not coming to the shop near you. Click through for a full look at the pack which includes the Phantom board shorts and look for the group tomorrow, July 14th.

“It was time…to free the foot.”
While Nike Free didn’t debut until 2004, the story of the Free goes back much further than you’d expect. What started with Nike Innovation Director Tobie Hatfield’s vision ended with the Nike Free, which revolutionized ‘natural movement’ in a performance sneaker as it gave the athlete a pure barefoot running experience while providing lightweight cushion and protection. Since the debut of the Nike Free 5.0, we’ve seen various levels of Free support, and with its availability on Nike iD, the athlete can create the most distinct Free running shoe in terms of comfort and colorway. Nike opens up its Tales From The Kitchen once more for this interesting featurette, so check out the under-three-minute video below to grasp the entire Nike Free history and let us know where the Nike Free ranks among Nike’s greatest running shoes of all-time!
