With the popularity of Vibram Five Fingers continuing to rise, and adidas jumping on board with their Adipure shoes, we knew it was only a matter of time before Nike joined the party. Featured here are the Nike Free Gym.

These ultra lightweight shoes weigh in at just 5 ounces, which makes them perfect for things like Yoga. Nike opted for a split toe design versus the ‘Five Fingers’ design of Vibram which will help improve balance compared to a standard shoe design. The Nike Free Gym features a rubber outsole equipped with herringbone patterns to increase grip. These shoes are meant to be worn without socks, and even come with a strap to ensure the perfect fit.

You can pick the Nike Free Gym up now directly from Nike.
