The purpose of cross-training is to test your muscles in new ways so you can spur new growth, identify weaknesses, and give your mind and body a chance to break out of its routine. Of course, cross-training can mean different things to different athletes, but it almost always means getting out there in mother nature where things can get dirty and wet real quick. That's why Nike's Free Trainer 7.0 Shield is so important; its designed to help you brave the elements without looking like you're wearing anything high-tech. Its upper features Durable Water Resistant material while its mid-foot cage netting on the profiles and heel keep the fit snug. Underneath, Nike used a rugged tread pattern to give you grip on a vareity of surfaces. Look for the new Nike Free Trainer 7.0 Shield beginning next Monday in black, khaki, and silver, each with their own pop of accent color.
