Building upon over a decade of Nike Free innovation, Nike unveils new additions to its Free footwear family. Each features a progressive geometric auxetic midsole designed to enable an athlete’s natural motion and develop strength, whether they are running or training.
Drawing upon new studies that reveal how the foot expands and contracts upon impact with and liftoff from the ground, the splaying, auxetic midsole mimics how the body and foot react to force. It absorbs shock while accounting for the dual-plane expansion in foot size — approximately one size in length and two sizes in width — that occurs throughout an athlete’s foot strike.
Moreover, the multi-directional outsole flexibility closely mimics this changing shape, whether an athlete is moving linearly in running or multi-directionally in training. The resulting flexibility puts the foot, rather than the shoe, in control. Or, as explained by three-time gold medal sprinter Allyson Felix, "Using Nike Free footwear in my training is all about strengthening my feet. I really like having that natural movement in my shoes. Everyone’s feet are different, so it’s great to have a shoe that really moves with you."
Nike Free RN Motion Flyknit (RRP: RM599)
This running shoe enables the runner’s most dynamic movement. It pairs a fully adaptive, single-piece Nike Flyknit upper featuring 3D ribbing from the forefoot to heel with the new auxetic midsole.
Nike Free RN Flyknit (RRP: RM519)
The zonally engineered, lightweight Flyknit upper combines a sock-like fit with a classic silhouette that molds to the foot. The midsole features the same expansive auxetic technology with a brand new, softer IU foam for additional underfoot comfort.
Nike Free RN (RRP: RM439)
Lightweight and dynamic, this running shoe unites an engineered mesh upper for flexible support with a brand new, softer IU foam for additional comfort underfoot.
Women's Nike Free Transform Flyknit (RRP: RM599)
This low-profile training shoe features a Flyknit upper designed to enhance support. Flywire locks down the foot during lateral cuts while an integrated heel counter keeps an athlete stable for movement in all directions. A two-piece interior pairs cushioning for repetitive high-impact moves with a firm outsole that delivers more support during the toughest workouts.
Men's Nike Free Train Force Flyknit (Not available in Malaysia)
This low-profile training shoe features a 5/8-height Flyknit upper designed to promote a feeling of support. Flywire locks down the foot during lateral cuts while an integrated heel counter keeps an athlete stable during hard cuts. Dual-density tooling pairs cushioning for repetitive high-impact moves with a firm outsole that delivers stiffer support during rigorous lifts.

Petaling Jaya, April 2016 – Triple Pte. Ltd., the exclusive distributor for U.S. high performance sports apparel Under Armour has hit Malaysia with a two-day event in celebration of human performance, functional fitness and training lifestyle.
The Under Armour Test of Will 2016 is an elite Southeast Asia regional event like no other that is accessible to everyone with the will to train. The fitness challenge is distinctively curated for the growing community of advanced athletes, high achievers and fitness enthusiasts with a drive for competition across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The first national heat kicked off in Singapore followed by the Philippines, and will be hitting Thailand soon, whereby the two highest scoring men and women of the national heats from the respective country will then compete in the Grand Finale in Singapore.
Over the course of two days, the Malaysia’s national heat attracted over 803 contestants competing under one roof. Each of them was required to complete a 4-minute circuit challenge that assesses pure functional fitness through callisthenic motion using body weight and simple gear. The circuit challenge comprised of four sets of exercises: burpees, squats, dumbbell presses and pull-ups (inclined pull-ups for women), where each contestant was to complete the maximum number of reps he or she can achieve within 60 seconds respectively.
Both men and women were not spared the goblet squats which came as part of the second challenge. While men endured 20kg, the women bore 10kg.
Following two gruelling challenges, contestants had to endure their third challenge right after in the form of dumbbell presses, 20kg for men and 10kg for women.
Under Armour Malaysia’s Brand Athlete, Nana al Haleq continued to test her will at the 1-minute pull-ups.
Contestant challenging himself with the intensity challenge by Subaru.
Contestants were also treated with an intensity challenge organised by Subaru, where they were required to carry and stack eight tyres from one end to another as fast as possible. The fastest female or male to stack the eight tyres will win RM300 worth of Subaru merchandise.
On top of that, the crowd was entertained by a showdown between Captain America and Iron Man, played by our very own Malaysia’s Brand Athlete Kit Mah and Peter Davis. The Under Armour Civil War Alter Ego collection is now available at all the brand houses.
Choose your side – Team Captain America (Kit Mah) vs Team Iron Man (Peter Davis).
Jonathan Wong and Andrew Kwan were the best under the male category with the highest score of 148 and 145, while Elaine Hong Ai Leen and Letchumi Sinadurai made the ladies proud by emerging as the top scorers for the female category, scoring a total rep of 217 and 193 respectively. These four winners have won a trip to Singapore to compete in the Under Armour Test of Will Grand Finale which will be held on 28 May 2016 at Gardens by the Bay.
At the Grand Finale, the best contestants from the four countries will battle it out over a series of challenges in a specially built 14-metre tower designed to test strength, endurance, determination and will.
