The Nike Free RN Flyknit Men's Shoe guarantees to convey a running experience like no other. It offers a smooth, seamless design and features Flyknit technology that wraps the foot for a secured fit, reducing foot slippage. This shoe is most related in structure to the Brooks Hyperion. Midsole cushioning and energy return is outstanding, but the durability of the underside is a concern due to minimal outsole coverage.
