The Nike Free Trainer 3.0 Mid Shield “USA” ($120) is for those looking for a performance shoe that will provide some protection against the elements. This Mid Training shoe keeps your feet warm and dry while still providing flexibility and breathability. The mesh upper has a durable, water-repellent finish while multidirectional Diamond FLX grooves in the outsole offer a barefoot-like feel and enhanced flexibility and articulation. Because these are team trainers you also get “USA” embolden on the heel so you can pay tribute to our national teams.
The Nike Air Footscape Desert Chukka QS ($219) is Nike’s latest take on their classic woven chukka. This version has an all black woven upper that sits on an all white midsole. The midsole makes use of Nike’s Freemotion Sole tech. Additional features include rubber outsole panels and a leather heel panel.
