A new home = lots of exploring to be done, and I’ve now had two very sunny weekends settling in to life in my new city of Cambridge in the UK. For those of you of don’t know Cambridge, it’s the very pretty Hogwarts-esque home to The University of Cambridge, which boasts a multitude of famous alumni including John Milton, Byron, Rachael Weisz and Thandie Newton.
Based on the River Cam, Cambridge life eschews the car in favour of cycling, walking and punting to get about. Hence the need for some very (very, did I say, ‘very’) comfortable new sneakers to support Mission: New City Exploration – a wish heard by the wonderful team at JD Sports who sent me some Nike Free trainers to test drive.
The most breathable sneakers that I own, the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit is supremely lightweight and breathable. I was a little worried at first about lack of support at the sole, but in fact I haven’t noticed any problems, likely due to the Flywire cables within the design that minimize weight but give maximum support. Or, as Nike tell me:
“We don’t always run, but we do always look good.”
The Nike Free shoes are perfect for urban travelling. Get your own pair at JD Sports.
