Nike Flex Experience RN 6 updates

Smooth, flexible, and natural ride

The outsole of the Flex Experience RN 6 is essentially an extension of the injection-molded midsole. To keep it from prematurely deteriorating, Nike added harder carbon rubber in the heel and the tip of the forefoot.

The hexagonal lugs are designed for a smooth, flexible, and natural ride. The hexagon pattern is also present in the Flex Experience RN 7.

Flex Experience RN 6 provides cushioning and durability

The super-simple midsole is injection molded and is a single piece of EVA for the usual amount of cushioning and durability. As it runs the length of the midsole, it aids with the smoothness of the transition from landing to take off.

Nike Flex Experience RN 6 is a superbly minimalist shoe

Nike’s offering in the upper of the Flex Experience 6 is superbly minimalist. It is a seamless construction starting with a two-piece mesh that is really very breathable with just enough density for support.

It is lightly padded in the tongue and collar while the whole interior is lined with plush fabric for comfort. A foamed insole adds a little more cushioning. Nike uses traditional laces in keeping the fit secured.
