CR7 Helps Launch Nike Free Trainer 3.0 V4

With pre-season upon us Nike and Cristiano Ronaldo launch a fresh looking get-up from the house of Free in the Nike Free Trainer 3.0 V4.

This time of the year, it's those miles on the pavement that make the difference. Nike are bolstering their training line with the launch of the Free Trainer 3.0 V4 featuring Cristiano Ronaldo; a player who epitomises the modern foobtall athlete. “When I was 12 years old, most of the people told me ‘Cristiano, you are a very, very good, talented player, but you are very skinny, very slim.’ And I put it in my mind: the body, we can improve… I put it in my mind, ‘Well, this is not that difficult. I have the talent. Now I’ll go to the gym and prove myself.’”

Technical features of the Nike Free Trainer 3.0 V4 include completely revamped upper from its predecessors. Offering that dynamic strength the trainer is backboned by an internal heel counter, while the upper features a woven circular-knit mesh that strengthens when the foot is engaged in order to reduce friction during movement.

The performance is paralleled by the boldness of its design. The variety of patterns generated by the use of the circular knit materials creates a disruptive visual pop, allowing athletes to be explosive in both their movements and their style. “We designed this for athletes who want to be fast in all directions,” said Day. “It’s incredibly lightweight and low to the ground, making it extremely stable and responsive. Being lower to the ground also allows for quicker bursts and more explosive movements.”
