Workout Wednesday - Nike Free Rn Flyknit at Foot Locker #approved

Wednesday 10 August 2016

My gym game is coming on strong so it was with great delight that I welcomed some fab new running shoes into my sportswear stable, the Nike Free Rn Flyknit from Foot Locker (£109.99). I chose this style purely for their technical spec, something this crazy colourway fan is quite proud of, but I LOVE them. I'm quite surprised at how fond of them I actually am, because they look totally basic with no look at me patterns or cool sole deets, but they are an absolute dream to wear and work out in. 

The integrated flywire cabled lacing is super supportive and the low profile cushioned sole with rounded heel encourages a natural footstrike, whilst the knitted auxetic tri-star outsole adjusts to the movement in your feet. It's really bizarre to watch but the only way I can describe it is to say that your feet look like caterpillars on the go, flexing and stretching with every step. It's kind of hypnotic to watch, so probably best to avert your eyes whilst on a treadmill . . . 

They're also ridiculously light that it feels like you're walking in soft slippers, so you feel like you're just skipping along which is amusing for the first 10 mins until you get used to them. The idea is to wear them without socks but I just can't do that soz, plus I like the extra cushioned feeling of sports liners. Compared to my old New Balance gym trainers, the Nike Free Rn Flyknit's are a million times better *side eyes old kicks*.

Overall I'm really pleased with my upgrade. It's important to switch up your gymwear as you progress and your shoes should probably be your biggest investment. Make sure you read reviews and the tech specs before making a final decision. The Nike Free Rn Flyknit are primarily designed as a running shoe, which is perfect for me as a treadmill fan, but they will also serve me in HIIT workouts (lightweight but good stability provided) and Spin (lace support system, ventilation and weight will all help here).

In other news, it's now just 4 weeks until our wedding day! I can't believe it's come round so quickly, time to take it up a notch in these trainers I think ;)
