Nike Free TR 7 Updates

Multidirection-optimized outsole

The Nike Free TR 7 makes use of the brand’s proprietary Tri-Star design. It has triangular cuts throughout the outsole which allow the shoe to bend in multiple directions.

The rubber pods reinforce the high-wear areas for protection. They also provide traction and stability on various surfaces.

Nike Free TR 7 Outsole

Shock-absorbent midsole

The Free TR 7 relies on the injected foam to provide cushioning and shock absorption. The foam is also flexible to accommodate the natural bending of the foot during a workout.

Part of the midsole’s lateral side juts out to form an outrigger. Its purpose is to stabilize the foot during lateral movements by giving it a wider platform.

Breathable upper

The Nike Free TR 7 employs a closed mesh material to provide a form-fitting fit. The mesh is also lightweight and breathable to keep athletes comfortable throughout the workout.

Synthetic dots are added around the toe box. They are meant to add structure and protection to the area.

Snug lacing system

A molded TPU cage wraps the heel and the midfoot. It helps to support the foot throughout a variety of movements. It also has extra pairs of eyelets to allow for a customizable lace closure.

The midfoot is further secured by Flywire cables on the lateral and medial sides. They intertwine with the laces and adjust to their tightening and loosening. It allows for an even lockdown of the foot.
