The Dynamic Fit system is made up of 'fingers' of soft material that wrap the midfoot and arch, tailoring the shoe perfectly to your foot. For added support and comfort, the molded sockliner mimics the foot's curvature.
Flex grooves along the length and width of the outsole enhance flexibility and help maintain stability for a more natural stride. For added flexibility and to help increase foot strength, the Nike Free Run+ 3 also has diagonal cuts through the arch area.
The upper offers lightweight support right where you need it, with seamless overlays for a supportive, skin-like fit.
After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university's golf course, three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure-measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion.
The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
