Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

I have only worn this shoe once which was yesterday in the gym . I'm using it as a weight training/TRX/rowing machine shoe so I don't need a lot of stabilization I just want to something super neutral with a little bit of cushion but haven't been quite sold yet but of course I've only worn it once .

NICE CUSHION

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Having worn Nike years ago, I thought I'd give them a try again as I have been looing for a lighter-weight running shoe. These were almost perfect. The cushion was great, though I did feel they were a bit smaller than other men's sz. 8. My only complaint is that the sole was too flexible for my taste. Just sitting and curling my toes within the shoe bent the sole. For me, while I really liked the cushion, I'd want a little less flexible sole.

Very comfortable shoe. Doesn't even feel like I have anything on my feet. Wish the toe box was bigger. I may return them for a half size higher to see if this helps.

Just started running again after taking a long break. I am happy with the shoe fit and the level of comfort it provides. I think the shoe looks great also. I have been using these for about 2 weeks now. I would buy again.

By Rona

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Nice so far. Using them primarily for indoor and travel workouts, seem to have plenty of cushion and stability for treadmill and elliptical workouts as well as full body circuit training. Like that they are lower drop, wish Nike had more models in the 4mm range.

Great shoe to date

By Cameron

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Nice light shoe that feel great! I've put about 6 miles per day on these for about 2 weeks and they are fantastic. I'm usually an Asics runner but wanted a low profile shoe. So far I really like them but in the past Nike hasn't held up for me past 3 months... I hope for longevity here. Little pebbles sometimes get caught in the sole and I have to pick them out if I've been offroad. Overall... great shoe to this date.

Above average, lightweight

By Troy

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Lightweight minimalist feel. Feels like I am running in water shoes or socks, which many may like/prefer. Poor quality shoelaces and not really a lot to the shoe to justify cost. Above average, but just OK.

    Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

    I think it says a lot about a pair of shoes when you decide to write a review here. I have been searching for the right kind of shoes for a while. I transitioned into the nike frees for about three years now and came across the RN distance. When I tell you that you shouldn't hesitate to buy these, I'm saying it with a straight face. It's literally a combination of what you already LOVE about the nike free 5.0's...with just a touch of additional support. Its absolutely incredible what a difference it makes. There's no more foot pains, no more yearning for a little more support around the arches. It feels so good you don't want to take these off. Just try them and you'll walk out of the store having bought them. I can't get enough of it and I'm already looking at other colors to buy. I've used them in short distance, long distance runs, speed workouts. Everything. It's simply amazing. Now stop reading this and go TEST THEM. -Alex

    • Low Drop

    Cons

    • Not Super Responsive

    Best Uses

    • Distance Running

    Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

    Recently bought these to see if the low drop (4mm) and 20mm forefoot cushion in a very flexible shoe would work for me. Happy to report that they do. The shoes are very comfortable from the time you put them on your foot. They have enough support in the arch for a neutral shoe. They are light weight. So far I've run a little over an hour or about 7.5 miles and they hold up well. I'm hoping I can go farther in them. First pair was in gray; just bought another pair in blue. They seemed to be holding up well on the bottom and the upper so far.
