In many ways, the Nike Free Connect is a turbo-charged slipper. The one-piece breezy mesh slip-on has a low-cut silhouette not too dissimilar to a futuristic kung fu shoe. But that’s where the comparisons end, the Free Connect is not a simple beast and houses a solid dose of Nike tech. The latest colourway features a blazing gold Swoosh (Can we say Olympics inspired again?) across its cross-linked sleek mesh. Noticeably, a black strap extends diagonally across the upper to keep the shoe snug as the wearer’s foot extends and contracts through a cardio class. This harmony, between foot and sneaker, is bolstered by a tri-star Free outsole designed to mimic natural movement.
Those wanting to slip in to the Free Connect can do so right now at select Nike stockists.
