Nike Free Transform Flyknit size and fit
This workout shoe from Nike was designed specifically for women. The sizing scheme follows the standard measurements of the Nike brand. The shoe accommodates ladies with medium foot dimensions as it comes in B – Medium width. Even though the Flyknit material in the upper is soft and flexible, it ensures a snug fit and doesn’t stretch substantially.
The Nike Free Transform Flyknit features the unique Tri-Star auxetic design. It allows the sole to expand and contract to aid the natural flexibility of the foot.
The rubber pods guard the high-wear areas of the outsole against abrasion. They also enhance the traction capability of the shoe.
The dual injected Phylite foam is utilized in the Free Transform Flyknit for lightweight cushioning. The Phylite foam is 40% solid rubber which makes it tough enough to double as an outsole as well. It helps in reducing the overall weight of the shoe.
The Flyknit material makes up the entire upper of the Nike Free Transform Flyknit. It is a one-piece unit that wraps the foot to provide a snug, form-fitting coverage. The Flyknit varies in density depending on the part of the shoe. The midfoot and forefoot sections feature woven ribbings which allow for more flexibility while the material in the rear is tightly-woven for heightened support.
The dynamic Flywire cables on the lateral and medial sections connect to the laces. They lock down the middle part of the foot. Several wires are also placed around the ankle for added stability and support.
Another popular workout shoe that carries both the Flyknit upper and the Free midsole is the Nike Free TR Flyknit 3.
