    Comments about Mens Nike Free Run+ Running Shoe:

    I was a non-Nike user for many, many years, as I have a wide foot and Nike (typically) only offers a "standard" width. However, my wife uses the Nike+ system with her iPod, and I became increasingly jealous. So, I tried a pair of Nike Free 5's on at the local running store. I was surprised at how great the shoe felt (width wise).
    This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned, and I've run the gambit. I am a male, 40 years old, about 6 feet tall, and typically weight between 185 and 190 pounds. I have had problems with runner's knee in the past, and have tried every conceivable shoe out there, with no "aha!" moment. That is, until I bought my Nike Free shoes. These helped me change from a dyed in the wool heel-striker to a mid-foot striker, with little effort. I have been able to increase my mileage (significantly) with no knee pain, and I have cut my times tremendously. I have trimmed a full 10 minutes of my 10k time.
    I was worried about wear and tear on the soft soles, but after almost 300 kilometers, there is only light wear, and I continue to wear these on long and short runs.
    In summary, I could not be happier with these shoes. I will continue buying Nike Free shoes. Love the Lance Armstrong color scheme, too.

    Comments about Mens Nike Free Run+ Running Shoe:

    The feel of this shoe is fantastic! Feels like a sock with a sole. The problem is that this shoe did not work as a running shoe for me. The Nike Free outsole will only work for very light runners who really appreciate the "Barefoot Running" idea. I still love and recommend this shoe for anyone, but only for a casual wear. I'm sticking to my Lunarglides for running.

      Comments about Mens Nike Free Run+ Running Shoe:

      I have been a fairly casual runner...recently completed my 2nd half-marathon, and am considering training for a full in the spring. I figured I would give these shoes a try in-between. I started wearing this shoe about a month ago, and have been blown away. The shoe is extremely light and flexible, and they definitely help me run lighter on my feet and reduce the impact of my heel. I can't even imagine running in anything resembling my Brooks running shoes that I used up until a month ago. I now look forward to my runs just because it means I get to wear my Nike Free shoes! Not sure how they will be on a treadmill in the winter, but they are terrific on the open road!

      Comments about Mens Nike Free Run+ Running Shoe:

      I'm 6' 3", 220 lbs and 31 years. I've been running in mine for 3 months (~25+ miles / week) and they've been great for me. For the last few years I ran in Vomeros because I assumed I needed the extra cushioning for my weight, but with these I get a better run and feel noticeably stronger. My knees were sore after the first run or two, but once the muscles and tendons around my knees began to strengthen, the soreness went away completely. I don't miss the extra cushioning in the least, and my leg muscles have become much more defined, especially my calves. I would even say my knees feel better now than they did in the Vomeros.

      I love wearing them without socks, but I did learn two things in doing so. First, a little moisturizer on the top of the foot and toes for the first month helped me break them in without any cuts or blisters. Second, after a while they stink and need to be washed. I remove the insole, put the shoes and the insoles in the washing machine with a detergent that has color-safe bleach (regular didn't eliminate the odor), and then let them air-dry. Look and smell like new. I need to wash them every 12-15 runs.

        Comments about Mens Nike Free Run+ Running Shoe:

        I got this shoe so that I would have a minimalist shoe to add to my quiver. I run about 40-50 miles per week and am training for several half marathons this fall and then Boston next spring. I've been researching barefoot running and am not quite ready to dive into the Vibram 5 Fingers so I went with Nike's version. I have the Luna Racers and have been happy with them so I figured I could trust the Free Run to help in my training.

        Out of the box, they felt snug but loosened up after my first run. I did make the mistake of not wearing socks (because they felt so snug) and running 8 miles. Needless to say my feet blistered up enough to make me walk the last mile. They are light and fast but gives no support, by design. I have put about 50 miles on these shoes so far and my feet and ankles feel sore from the minimal support. It is a good sore however; I feel my feet and ankles are a bit stronger from training in these shoes. I alternate these shoes with other more neutral and more cushioned shoes throughout the week to give my feet and break.

        If you run on gravel, be sure to pick out the pieces of rock that get wedged into the sole before your next run.

          Pretty great shoe. I am transitioning to the POSE method of running, and these have been helping out dramatically. These are not like racing flats, but they are not regular running shoes either. They have a slight heel, so if you are not a true fore foot runner, it will be ok. All in all, pretty great shoe.

          Graduated from LunarFly to the Free Run, and I really like this shoe. I have about 225km on the shoes so far, and have noticed a little bit of very mild plantar pain recently in one foot (never had a problem before now) but this is likely due to my high arches, and as a minimalist shoe there isn't much arch support. I would love to move towards barefoot running and I'm hoping this will get me closer. Not the best for trail running or on very rough surfaces, since you will feel every rock. Overall, I'm very happy and plan on purchasing the Free Run again.

            I have plantar fasciitis. Tried this shoe, using only on a treadmill, to see if it made a difference. It hasn't helped but it hasn't worsened the injury. Plus, the shoe is as comfortable as anything I've ever had on my feet. Bought a second pair to wear on weekends.

              I have been walking in this shoe only, trying to strengthen my feet and break into this "free" line of thought slowly. I run 40 miles a week in a different shoe, but with the results I am already noticing, I will start with some 3 mile runs in the "Free's" and add another pair soon. I can feel the muscles in my calves and feet strengthening. Great shoe.

                      I'm 5'5", 123 lbs. and have been using the Free's since they first came out. I feel that this latest version is the best iteration. I gradually worked up to using these for my longest runs and races and just did a marathon (3:14) in them. They were perfect all through my training and the race.
                      I don't find that they wear out quickly at all, though I probably do half of my running on dirt/grass.
                      I also tried the Nike Lunar Elite for a change of pace, but found that they would give me lower leg pains after some runs. In contrast to the Frees, I feel the Lunar shoes constrain my foot too much.

                        Before running with the Nike Free's I got a patella injury after only just starting out as a runner. I had logged probably less than 50 miles doing jogging/walking intervals in a pair of Brooks runners, then after I got fitted for a pair of asics bought insoles for and a patella brace. Eventually I had an MRI and was told that my knees weren't strong enough and I had injured my patella. I tried some knee strengthening exercises and started icing my knee but it hurt every time I ran even after a long break from running. One day I pulled an old pair of Nike Free's out of my closet and decided to try them out. It felt great so I decided to buy a new pair. In one week I will be running the Philadelphia Marathon (my first race) and I will be running in my Nike Free's. I've logged over 400 training miles and I haven't had any pain in my knee or anywhere else for that matter except for normal muscle soreness. I love these shoes. I'm not a big Nike fan, but I can't argue with results like these.

                          I'm a notorious heel striker and over-pronator. I had been nursing injuries for eight weeks straight when I bought these shoes. I'd been using all of the orthotics and structure shoes I could find, but nothing was making me feel better. I swear that my first break-in run of an easy four miles in these shoes had me feeling better! The shoes caused me to use different muscles and not strain the usual muscles. I still use the shoes on my low mileage days and they continue to impress. I've never found a product like this in my 20 years of running. You should give them a try if you need a change.

                            I have to admit, I was apprehensive about buying this shoe. I am a male, 190 lbs, and was worried this shoe wouldn't hold up. I haven't bought a Nike shoe in years (prefer Brooks & Asics) mainly because Nike doesn't offer much as widths go, and I have a 2E width. My wife has been using the Nike+ system, and I jealous, so I started looking at some Nike shoes.
                            Although these are a standard width, they feel great on my feet. I bough 1/2 size up, and these shoes feel light as air. I absolutely love them! The Nike+ system is great too. I have 40K on these shoes, and them seem to be holding up fairly well. I run on pavement, and there is slight heel wear, but nothing major. I am surprised, I thought these would wear down quickly, they are so soft. These shoes are awesome.

                                Although this is my 3rd pair of Free's, I have only begun running regularly in them for the last year. I used them in the past for walking and managed to heal issues with plantar fasciitis, etc. by strengthening my foot muscles. As I use these more, I notice I actually have better balance, as muscles in my feet and lower leg seem to be getting stronger. Read all the "Born to Run" arguments, but am not ready to go barefoot just yet. These are an excellent compromise to wean yourself off rigid shoes. A surprisingly soft run that encourages shorter steps and softer landings, exactly what you should be doing anyhow. Not sure yet about wear mileage compared to regular shoes, but newer designs are more durable than early models. Plan to try them for my next marathon.

                                  This is by far the best running shoe I have ever run in. For years I tried the stability, motion control and cushioned shoe and was never satisfied. Once I read the book Born to Run I decided to give the minimalist shoe a try and what I discovered was amazing. You don't need those heavy clunkers where you get no feedback when you are running. In the free run plus you can feel the pavement and how truly light these shoes are. If you buy a pair run 2 miles in the free runs and then put on your old clunkers and when you begin to run you won't believe the difference. What did I learn ? The less shoe the better.

                                    I run 20-25 miles per week. The Nike Free Run+ is the closes I've come to running bare foot, due in part to they're super light weight. I just healed a plantar problem with my foot and the Nike Free Run+ has given me the confidence & support my foot needs to continue my passion. RUNNING.

                                      Run 4-5 days a week. Was having knee and back issues. Read up on "barefoot" running that has a forefoot strike vs. a heal strike and how that alleviates joint issues. So tried the Nike free run. Work great.

                                      Very helpful in changing to ball of the foot running for distance. Unfortunately, you need a shoehorn to put them on because they are slip-ons. Once they are on, they are very good, but you can pull your back trying to get them on.

                                        After two years of the Nike 5.0, the FREE Run is the best version of the FREE line yet! Wider toe box so toes can splay out properly. Snug in the mid foot, and really encourages a midfoot/forefoot strike even better than previous versions. Took them right out of the box and ran 7 miles with no discomfort whatsoever. The FREE is the ONLY shoe I will run in. If you believe in barefoot style running... this is a great shoe.

                                        I would rate this a 5 if it had better arch support and if didnt run narrow( i am not so sure if its my feet or its how running shoes are made since my addidas fit the same way,narrow)

                                          Comments about Mens Nike Free Run+ Running Shoe:

                                          These fit straight out of the box and were comfortable. First run was free and fast...BUT...getting home after running our park track which has a pebbled trail, these shoes had LOTS of stones jammed in between the "sole teeth". I prefer to run off the pavement for training to prevent injury and these would be great if you ONLY run grass and pavement, but not a pebbled path. NOTE: these shoes have laces...its hard to tell from the photo!?, I thought they might be slip on, like my zoots!{Runner = 200lbs or so,6ft3}
