      I run a few miles a day and these shoes are exactly what I needed. They are super comfortable and they look very nice. I usually fluctuate between an 11.5 and 12 so I went for a size 12 and am happy with my choice.

      Roadrunner told me to order a half-size larger but that turned out too narrow. Had to order full-size larger for proper fit at same pricing. However, had to pay to return the smaller size. Not sure about ordering shoe product for first time online.

                Comments about Mens Nike Free 5.0 Running Shoe:

                I've had a series of Nike Free shoes over the years, most recently a few generations of Free Run+. These Nike Free 5.0 are equivalent to them in support. I like the new hexagonal sole design. They are quite flexible and light, with just enough cushion. I have a neutral foot, so like the flexibility. These fit very well, and look great too. I think the sole design, which is curved up just a bit at the heel, encourages a more mid-foot strike.

                I like the new tongue design, which provides the benefits of a long tongue under the laces, while being very thin.

                I indicated 1/2 size small fit because I wear a 10.5 shoe, but find the size 11 fits very well. But I often buy a 1/2 size large in running shoes, so from that perspective, they are true to size.

                          Tried this bc it is so much lighter than the Nike Vomeros I've been training in. Nursing Achilles injury, thought that the whole "Free" concept would help me change my foot strike and take some stress off of it. (Buzzer noise). Ran for an hour on day one in a park on paved paths, grass fields, and dirt paths. Felt light. Made it 5 miles on day two before my Achilles hurt too much to keep going. Probably would've had better results if I wasn't hurt. Won't go back to them until after I'm healed up.

                          They are light and I'm wearing them casually instead. Would've loved to race/train in them after the heavy ones I've been using. Maybe easing into the "Free" concept would've helped. Very comfortable, though.

                          The hex groove sole brings home little bits of your run. Pebbles, mostly. Get them a 1/2 size up like all Nikes. (Note to Nike: are you guys the only ones who don't notice all your footwear is a 1/2 size off?)

                          Currently using vomeros for long runs. Wanted a shoe that fits similar but is lighter. Think this one hit nail on head. A little narrow it seems against the side of big toe. Otherwise it's a great feel of a shoe. Traction is good. Flexible. Light. If the drop was 4mm less I would give it five stars.

                            I usually run in a 3.0v4. I chose these after trying the brooks pure model line and disliked those, they gave me shin issues after a few runs. Went back to nikes and always have great luck with these, picked up the new 5.0 to start my marathon training, they're perfect to train in and put down some extra miles over the 3.0 without injuries. I would say if your a minimalist runner but want some extra cushion these are the ticket. Ill still race in my 3.0 but anything over a 10 mile run ill be throwing these on with no ill effects to my natural gait in the 3.0. Great shoe, nailed it again Nike thank you!
