The Scoop: For runners that are curious of the barefoot experience, but also want support, take note of the Nike Free Flyknit+ shoe. Highly flexible, lightweight and mid-range cushioning features combine to provide a smooth ride.
The top of the shoe stretches, allowing material to move with the foot. Notice the tight weave construction, purposed to support key pressure zones and stress areas of the forefoot.
The compression fit wraps like a sockin an effort to offer a barefoot feel so the foot can better sense the ground. The fit is actually tight enough that you can remove the laces and still experience a locked down feel. Flex grooves in the arch aim to help the foot transition naturally with each stride.
