As any middle child will tell you, it can be tough to be wedged between two siblings. Such is the fate of the Nike Free 4.0, soon to be released in its third version. Still, it does a great job of standing out and making its own name for itself. The Free 4.0 v3 will slot between the Free 3.0 v5 and the Free 5.0+, offering a blend of the benefits of each shoe.
Like its siblings, the Free 4.0 v3 carries over the platform of the prior model, and focuses on improvements to the upper design. We expect weights to remain almost identical to the current model.
What to Watch For
- New Upper: Breathability is increased thanks to large mesh panels, while welded overlays continue to provide lightweight, seamless structure.
- Carryover Platform: The Free 4.0 v3 keeps the mid/outsole of the Nike Free 4.0 v2, with its 6mm heel-to-toe offset.
