[ Nike ] is releasing a limited-edition City Collection to celebrate the launch of the Nike Free Flyknit, a new running silhouette that marries two Nike landmark innovations: an ultra-lightweight Flyknit upper and a flexible Nike Free outsole. Featuring a new-generation Nike Flyknit that adds more elasticity and 360-degree lockdown, the shoe’s unique build includes a bootie-constructed heel that offers a snug fit around the ankle to eliminate slippage, all riding on a Nike Free articulated outsole allowing the foot to flex and stretch.
