The Nike Women’s Free RN Flyknit Running Shoes are part of a barefoot-inspired footwear line. This is popular with those who prefer to hit the open road under their own power.
Nike released the Flyknit shoe line around 2012 when the world’s top athletes were vying for gold medals during the London Olympics. When runners started clamoring for a shoe that provided the fit of a sock, Nike responded with the Flyknit Women’s Shoes.
In developing the Women’s Free RN Flyknit Running Shoes, Nike combined two of its innovations, which are its Free technology and Flyknit material. The company created the Free line after researching the biomechanics of moving feet. It took the company’s Free team eight years to create the first shoe in this line.
The company developed the Flyknit line in about four years. To develop the shoe model, the company hired engineers, designers and programmers as it needed to make a material that was flexible, durable and supportive.
Nike formed the shoe’s midsole to expand in several directions. The company was able to do this because of a new tri-star pattern. This feature added an entirely new dimension of flexibility to the shoes to let your feet move more energetically with every stride.
The Flyknit Women’s shoes run true to size, and they are best for runners who have a neutral foot strike. The heel section of the shoe features a non-stretching design that keeps your foot in place.
