What People are Saying About the Women's Nike Free RN 2018
Ladies who tested this model of the Free RN thought the upper afforded them featherweight breathability. If you struggle with your feet overheating on runs, the ample air circulation served up by the Free RN 2018 will keep your feet cool and comfortable - even as you pick up speed.
Style was another favorited feature of these trainers; many female runners raved about the exciting colorways Nike offers. Between muted tones suitable for the office and bright neons hues to stand out during your weekend warrior races, there’s a color choice for everyone.

Women's Nike Free RN 2018 Updates
The Nike Free RN 2018 stays true to the Free line in most aspects. However, the upper has been updated with a circular-knit exterior with stretchy spandex that naturally moves your feet, so you’ll never feel constricted as you begin to take flight. The rear section of the shoe features a flexible strap connected to the heel for more support (and fewer ankle rolls!). Bottom line: this iteration stays true to what runners love most about the Nike Free series - namely the freedom of movement - but has better breathability and more structure toward the heel.
Size and Fit of the Women's Nike Free RN 2018
General Size and Fit
The Nike Free RN 2018 features an 8 mm drop and comes in a women’s regular width. For your best and most comfortable fit, we recommend going up a half size from your true foot size.
A circular knit fabric creates breathable coverage for your feet in the women’s Nike Free RN 2018. Thank the padded heel for helping disperse shock upon landings, in addition to a rear spandex strap for keeping you locked in. This strap adds structure and support so you can launch every step forward with absolute confidence. Both the collar and tongue of the shoe are lightly padded for ultra-soft comfort and to help keep your feet even more secure.
The Free RN 2018 offers up a dual-midsole made with two foam units. One unit is the Phylon core, which offers superior lightweight cushioning. Enveloping this foam core is the EVA foam; this acts as a protective bubble around the Phylon core and serves up additional comfort for all your running (or walking, or standing!) endeavors. The dual-midsole construction means the Free RNs cushioning system will maintain its integrity longer, so you can expect unrelenting comfort for miles and miles of running.
A Tri-Star pattern on the center part of the outsole is added for enhanced flexibility in the areas where your feet naturally flex during the gait cycle, allowing you to achieve your fullest range of motion. The rest of the outsole is made out of a ground-contact EVA foam for a springy, snappy sensation as you lay down those miles, plus added traction to grip the road. Laser siping in both horizontal and vertical orientations makes your shoe even more flexible, so give your feet a taste of freedom in the women’s Nike Free RN 2018.
