Nike introduces the new Free Trainer 5.0, a shoe built on supporting the natural motion of the foot during training. Listening to the designers explain the analogous relationship between a training shoe and the Chinese finger trap, which blew my mind. Not because of the shoe itself, but that they picked such a random item – an old, simple child’s toy – and found a tie-in to help create better footwear. Inspiration’s truly everywhere.
