Nike's Flyknit training shoes made for the gym

The Nike Free line has been at the forefront of the minimalist movement, which focuses on allowing the foot to keep its natural motion as much as possible, unencumbered by the structure of traditional shoes. The Nike Free Train Force Flyknit brings that thinking into the gym, with a breathable shoe that is great for exercise classes, lifting weights and cardio equipment. The design uses Nike's Flyknit technology to provide stability on the upper with very little material.
