      The shoes themselves look nice, and are fairly comfortable. I recommend ordering a half size up because the fit is very snug. I mainly just use them for light walking and once in a while for running on the treadmill, so I can't effectively say how durable they are.

            These shoes were purchased just for getting to and from classes/gym etc., not for running. For that, they are awesome. Not a shoe I would use for running, but that is not why they were purchased. :)

              I've worn all versions of frees for years. I use them for short runs, walking, shopping. You name it, I live in them. This version is not as cute as the previous version, but the upper does break in and the fly wire is outstanding. If anything, I found myself wearing them loosely and it was better. They don't slip even at top speed and they are great for the gym. I got two pairs for myself for Christmas and plan to buy more as prices drop:)

                    Love these shoes. I started running recently with an old pair of Nike Free Run and upgraded to these new ones recently. Absolutely love them. The first run caused one blister on the side-ish of my left foot, kind of around the ball of the foot area, but that's it. I am okay with that one blister. I have put on over 50 miles so far and no complaints.
                    Would definitely buy again.

                        I fell in love with the Nike Free Run 3, went through two pairs and was surprised to find the new version (the first attempt) Nike Free 5.0 was so different. Sizing was way off, had to return the first pair for 1/2 size up (7.5 instead of my usual 7 in Nike, which is already up 1/2 size vs. other brands) but was still snug.

                        When I saw they had a new version of the 5.0 I decided to take a chance and order my previous size and behold, it's a brand new design with original sizing! Toe box is nice and roomy for my slightly wide feet, same lightweight feel and flexibility. The tongue is totally different - strange, thin neoprene but it didn't cause any issues or discomfort. I did have a blister under my big toe while running a relay with hills which I'd never had before, but it resolved quickly and no problems since. They have enough cushion to use for up to half marathon.
