Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Not a great shoe. Put in about 55 miles a week and doesn't appear I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of it. Support not great and not durable.

Better but far than the new version 2 ...

By Michael

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

A very good shoe, but Nike seems to keep changing this shoe type ("Free" line) and each change makes it worse. The version 2 has a sole that is no longer as flexible or allows "free" movement or proprioception. They should change it back in the next version.

Ok but not great. Nike may not be for me.

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

I have had several pairs of Nike Frees and have generally been pleased. This pair was no different. Felt very comfortable right out of the box and when walking but after a few runs they are causing discomfort in both feet. Maybe it was a fluke run but it may be time to go back to Saucony.

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Shoe fit ok, but I didn't like the feel when I ran with them. I guess I was expecting it to feel softer like my old Nike Frees. Turned these into walking shoes.

Love these shoes for Crossfit

By Penelope

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

This shoe is very comfortable, it fits like a slipper, however I can not wear it for more than a 7 mile run as they start to feel tight over the ball of my right foot. I love them for crossfit. They have a low enough profile that I can lift in them, they are also light enough for body weight movements and when there is running in the wod. I would not wear them for rope climbing as they would not hold up. I have a second pair I wear just because they are so comfortable.

Not as good as earlier Free but better than recent version 2

By Michael

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Nike Free RN Distance Running Shoe:

Have been using Nike Free since 2010. Loved the 3 and 5 shoes in the period 2010-2014. These are a good in-between shoe because of the sole but are not as good as the earlier versions ... Tried the Free Run Distance 2 with the "Lunarlon" sole (this is the next version of the shoe reviewed here) and not a fan... I think Nike is degrading on a continual basis what was once a great shoe. Probably will be buying some other brand in a couple years if they keep erroding the Free brand ...

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

About Me Avid Athlete

Verified Reviewer

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.
