Nike Free Run+ 3 Shield Men's Running Shoes - Bright Crimson, 7 REFLECTIVITY PLUS BAREFOOT-LIKE FLEXIBILITY The Nike Free Run+ 3 Shield Men's Running Shoe delivers a barefoot-like ride with the cushioning, traction and underfoot protection of a shoe, while weather resistance helps keep feet dry in wet conditions. Reflective Weather Protection Weatherized mesh and reflectivity on the upper offer protection from the elements and visibility in low light. The mesh has a DWR (durable, water-repellant) finish that helps keep feet dry while maintaining breathability. Flexibility Deeply articulated flex grooves along the length and width of the outsole enhance flexibility for a more natural stride. Diagonal cuts through the arch area add flexibility and help increase foot strength. Supportive Fit 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. A stretchy mesh inner sleeve with seamless overlays enhances the supportive, glove-like fit. And, for added support and comfort, the molded sockliner mimics the foot's curvature. Origins 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.
