Nike is stripping back to the basics and reviving the original Nike Free silhouette for 2014. While many of our readers would have been too young to experience the whirlwind that has been Free from the get go, others would remember that it hasn't been always been flowers. Due to some minor construction hiccups early on, the whole project was almost canned in its early days, but luckily for us Nike persevered and mastered the new tech. For those playing at home, see how many Nike Free silhouettes and hybrid variations you can name – you're going to need more than two hands.
Saluting the original Free and the revolution it stood for, Nike has re-envisioned their featherlight framing for an updated take on the roots of its Free lineage. The roll-out for 2014 will include the Nike Free OG, replicated with a contemporary aesthetic, and the Nike Free Breathe, the epitome of breathability. We can't express in words how happy we are to see this humble hero return better and stronger than ever, but one things for sure, Viva La Revoluzione, Viva La Free!
Look for the Nike Free Breathe and Free OG models arriving at select Nike Stockists and Nike.com commencing April 1.
