I bought my first Nike frees a year ago when I was suffering from severe bunion pain, which every sneaker seemed to only make worse. Because they have so little padding and "stuff" around the toes, the nike frees don't hurt AT ALL and have made me love running again. I'm a small runner (5'1, 100 lbs.) and regular sneakers sometimes make my legs feel very heavy. I always have light legs in these and my practice run pace has unintentionally increased by almost 30 seconds/mile. Last but not least in the great things I can say about this shoe, I bought them not knowing how they would be on long runs without the usual support. They've been great -- I was training for a marathon this winter (running 16-19-milers) and had no problems. I ended up not running that marathon because I found out I was pregnant, and now, at 6 months prego, I'm still running in my nike frees and they are great!
Love them so far
Ok, I've had these shoes for two days so I cannot comment on much but I have to say these are the MOST comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I never get excited about shoes because they normally hurt my feet after a few hours of wear. But I've had these shoes on for 2 days, 12 hours each day, and I can honestly say I'm not counting down the hours until I can kick them off. They feel like they were made especially for my feet. They hug my foot at every curve. Btw, my arches are collapsing, per my podiatrist, so I wear custom orthotics when I run in my New Balance motion control shoes. I'm not planning on running in the Nike's but I am looking forward to strengthing my feet which these bad boys are supposed to do! I'll write more after a few weeks of wear to give a more thorough review.
I've battled foot pain on and off for years-plantar fasciitis, morton's neuroma, hammer toe. Have tried many shoes including some of the popular minimalist- running ones. First time I tried these on I knew I would not need my orthotics. Left them out. Have run in these for a week and have been loving running again. No pain, the shoes seem to put me in proper alignment/form without my even thinking about it. They are so comfy-hug my arch, plenty of room in my forefoot. I've even canceled my podiatrist appt. I usually size up a whole size in other shoes, but would only need to have gone up a half size in these. The coolest color combos too.
comfortable but . . .
I got the Free Run because they had such great reviews and I wanted to transition to less of a shoe than than the Asics GT series that I'd been wearing for years. The Free Run is comfy and light and I really liked it for the first couple weeks of running. Then my knees started to hurt.I have never had knee issues before. I think I just need more cushion and impact absorption under the forefoot. I am keeping them for shorter runs (<3 miles) and kicking around but have to find something else for regular 4-6 mile runs. Also, it is a nuisance to have gravel and stuff stick in the bottom all the time.
LOVE these shoes!!!!
I've always had great luck with Nike, so that is why I chose to stay with the brand! I never tried these shoes on but after reading nothing but excellent reviews, I had to have these! I use to be a water polo player/swimming so running was never fun to me. Since I ended those "careers", I took up running and have grown to like it but needed a better shoe that would make me actually want to run. These shoes are absolutely amazing!!! Super lightweight, perfect arch support, and so comfortable! I actually love to run in these now! I read in a review that these were so like that they felt like a heavier sock, so true! Not to mention the crazy color combos that I love :) I still need to set up my Nike+ account but like the concept and excited to get started! Highly recommend these shoes to any gym rat and runner!!
Want NEON pink? Order the Red/Blue pair
I love these shoes. I've never gotten excited about a pair of running shoes before, but I couldn't help but tell people about these. They are by far the most comfortable pair of shoes I've every worn. In fact, this is my third pair. My only problem is with the color. I ordered the Red/Blue combo, but when I opened the box I was somewhat startled to see they were neon pink - not just kind of pink, but late-80s flourescent pink. While they would be okay for running, I like to wear them for "walking around" shoes after they are too broken down to run in. At age 45, I just can't pull that off.
Love these shoes!
I love these shoes. They are the best runners I've ever had. They offer just enough support, but are designed in a way that lets me feel the ground. The one and only drawback is that stuff gets stuck in the tread. I've gone on a few trail runs and have to stop now and then and use a stick to get all of the rocks out. These shoes are designed for a track/treadmill/pavement and don't perform as well off-road. That said, I really enjoy running in them on the trail, its just a pain/annoyance that stuff accumulates in the tread to the point that it interferes with my running.
Love that I can use my Nike+iPod with this shoe. Shoe fits like a glove and needs no real break-in time.
On my 4th pair
I run 20-30 miles per week and these are the only shoes for me. No blisters as the shoes are so minimally built that there is nothing to rub your foot wrong. When I can't run in them anymore - they become my new walking shoes. Wouldn't wear anything else! I have a narrow foot - but my hubby who has a wide foot wears them too. Order a 1/2 size larger than your usual running shoe size.
Love, love, love these shoes. You have to ease into them, as with any minimalist shoe, but they are great for running. I finally feel in proper form when I run because of these shoes. I used to plod along in my heavy trainers, wondering why my low back got so fatigued. feels natural to run in these. Love the look too. very cool
Less is More
After my first run in these I was finally able to run pain free for the first time in years! I have been experiencing forefoot pain and trying many different brands and models and even custom orthotics, to no avail. I always thought I needed more cushion, then firmer cushion, turns out less cushion was the answer! Tried these after reading Born to Run.
Shoe makes you feel like flying
There's no sole which takes away the hassle of having a sole that moves around a lot whenever you remove your shoe.
Super light weight, feels like you're flying when you run. The design and colors are a super cute design for women.
The purple shoestrings are bright!
I've been wearing for walking and for casual wear. Have gotten many comments on how eye catching they are. They are comfortable, hardly know you have shoes on but enough support for my foot. I have a naturally high arch and they seem supportive enough. Simple love them!!!
Light as a feather
These shoes are lighter than any other running shoe I've ever worn. As close to barefoot running as it gets, they are comfortable, lightweight, great traction, and they look amazing! I will wear these with pride and buy another pair "just because!"
Good pair. I haven't worn nike since I was a kid. A friend of mine couldn't say enough about Nike free so I thought I would try them. Nothing special, but an overall decent lightweight. If you have wide feet, consider trying them on before buying online.
Ready for a free run!
This is a great shoe! Nice for a short/fast run, 2-3 miles. I also have a second pair to wear for long walks with my dog since they are so comfy - they feel like slippers! I'm not sure if they will wear out quickly since they are so light weight...
this shoe is a MUST have...
i LOVE these shoes! i have 3 pairs..and have another color on my wish list!
i'm not a runner because of my knees,
but these shoes do extremely well with walking...as i do ALL day at my job.
just take them out the box and you're set!
My favorite shoe!
I finally found a running shoe that I love! It is lightweight and my foot doesn't feel squeezed anywhere in the shoe! I love it for running AND I want another pair for simply wearing around!
40+ and fit

Best Shoe EVER!!!!!
Great shoe! I first started out with the Free Run +, which they no longer make(Darn it). So far these shoes are feeling just as good. I only wish they would last longer~
love to run
Great for Non Runners too :D
Get a half size larger otherwise the fit is completely off. It's really lightweight and comfortable

love these shoes!
I have trouble with plantar facitis and i love these- my feet feel great! I wear them everywhere.
The only problem is that dirt, gravel, and rocks get jammed in the bottom of the shoe...so probably best on cement.
Best shoes ever!!!
These shoes are amazing for any kind of standing in general they feel great on your feet!

AMAZING SHOE!!! Best Nike shoe yet!
I LOVE THIS SHOE. That's all I can really say... it's THAT amazing.
light as air
great shoes, barely feels like you even have shoes on.
Not worth it. No support
Strange fit and too little cushioning and support.
Great for workouts at the gym!
