Nike Free Trainer 5.0 for the Modern Athlete

by on April 8, 2015

Spring is here, and of course your training should blossom as well. Check out how the new tech and construct of Nike’s recently announced and released Nike Free Trainer 5.0 keeps the modern athlete in mind.

Nike Free Outsole

Wider hexagon outer sole for better traction.

Since the Nike Free Trainer 3.0, Nike Free Trainers deliver the same stability, comfort and natural motion flexibility in a lightweight chassis. For a trainer, being lightweight and the shoe’s traction are key. The Nike Free outsole deliver  hexagonally-cut flex grooves, allowing the foot to move naturally in every direction, while rubber gripping on the outsole provides traction.

The hexes in the outsole of the Free Trainer 5.0 are a little bigger than those in the Free Trainer 3.0 to provide added stability and cushioning but with the same level of flexibility. The outsole, heel-to-toe, of the Free Trainer 5.0 sits one millimeter higher than the Free Trainer 3.0, which again is designed to address different cushioning needs. Both sit low to the ground for maximum feel and stability.


Nike Free Flywire


Both Nike Free Trainers offer a highly breathable upper with Nike Flywire technology for a superior lockdown feel and lateral support when cutting.

The new Nike Free Trainer 5.0 is now available at and select retail locations.
