Nike Free Metcon 4 – Overview
Nike Free was created to copy the qualities of running barefoot on grass and was first launched in 2004. This gives an athlete the ability to run naturally using technology that promotes natural motion. Metcon is known for its excellent stability and durability for functional movement. It keeps on evolving but still focusing on strength, agility, and endurance. Combining the two formed the Nike Free Metcon 4. It blends flexibility with stability to help you get the most out of your training program. It has a modernized “chain-link” mesh that cools and flexes as you rush through agility drills, while the support at the midfoot and heel prepares you for your most difficult sets in lifting.
The original version’s extra-tough yet breathable mesh is now with the Free Metcon 4. The upper is decorated with a Huarache-inspired strap and rubber-striped sidewall that wraps your heel to support you for different movements. The Huarache first appeared in 1991 with a minimal design and a comfortable feel because of its sock-like neoprene upper. The Nike Free technology in the forefoot produces flexibility for quick moves and sprints, while the stretch around the collar allows your foot to move freely as you burst and break.
It has a wide heel that forms a stable base for lifting and a softer foam core that brings comfort to your foot. A firmer outer layer is durable and sturdy, making sure you keep up with your intense training. The wide internal webbing disperses tension around your midfoot for a relaxed yet locked-in feel during unexpected stops and agile cuts. It has a rubberized logo at the tongue, and a rubber tread in high-wear areas gives you durable traction.
