Nike's treatment of the Free Inneva Woven II has proven divisive so far, but we're confident that this new iteration is a certified winner. Keeping the signature on-foot comfort of the original Inneva Woven, the sequel adds extra structure and support around the laces and collar. Once more, the shoe has been given a restricted colour palette with its all over golden brown treatment. The intricate woven nylon upper and segmented Free sole, which contrast the angular suede panels towards the back of the foot, give the shoe all the personality it needs – the minimal colouring lets the unique construction stand alone as the shoes focus.
