On the 10th anniversary of the debut of the Nike Free 5.0, Nike Sportswear introduces to new models — the Nike Free Breathe and Nike Free OG — that applies a lifestyle-based design that honors the classic aesthetic and natural motion functionality of the original Nike Free shoe. The Nike Free Breathe advances the barefoot concept by improving breathability through a deconstructed, double-sided mesh upper, making it ideal for sock-free wear during the summer months. Its Nike Free OG counterpart sits on the same Nike Sportswear-specific outsole on the Free Breathe, while the synthetic suede perforated upper and dynamic heel pocked are borrowed from the 2004 Nike Free 5.0. A traditional tongue replaces the original interior bootie for a wider ranging fit and increased comfort. The Nike Free Breathe and Free OG are set to launch in stores on April 1.
