I have never owned a pair of Nike Free Runs or any shoe that is so low to the ground. Before the Realflex shoes, I ran in a pair of Nike Zoom Victory+, which allowed for an easy transition into these shoes because both are very lightweight. I have owned five pairs of them so these were the first different pair of training shoes that I have bought in about two years.
I went to a local store to learn more about these shoes. The store had a sample pair sitting outside for viewing and to examine the shoe. As seen in many of the pictures, the Realflex shoe is very flexible and can be bent to form a full circle, which I didn't really understand the purpose of at first. I have never owned a pair of Nike Free Runs or any shoe that is low to the ground quite like these. The Realflex boasts of a shoe with ample comfort yet lower to the ground than any shoe in its class, allowing for a more natural run. I had a salesperson get me a pair of the Realflex shoes, and half of a size lower than my actual foot size turned out to be the right fit.Read more ›
Things I LOVE about this shoe:
The tongue is very thin so I don't have to lace too tightly to get a snug fit.
The material around the toes/forefoot is very moveable so my toes are free to wiggle.
My forefoot area (base of the toes) is very wide (think Flintstone feet) and the material does not encumber that area.
The soles are highly shock absorbent (I tend to stomp when I walk) so the soles of my feet do not take any abuse.
I did not have to break them in at all! They were perfect from the moment I put them on in the store.
Cannot say enough great things about this shoe. Sizing: I bought a half size up (Flintstone feet) and have had no issues with rubbing, stretching, or blistering.
Anyone working long hours on your feet.....this is the shoe for us!
I'm buying a second pair in a different color because when you find shoes you love that fit well and look great, you'll wish you did. You must try these!
Athletic background: I've been cross training and weight lifting for about two years and have used the same athletic shoes since college (6 years ago). I just decided to buy these shoes because I recently learned the advantages of proper shoes for certain activitities and because I realized (the hard way) that my shoes lost most of it's treading/grip (it was practically bald). I don't run long distances (< 3 miles) so my opinion about these being good running shoes might be partial; however, I know a thing or two about what's good for your body ;)
Realflex vs. Nike Free's: When I decided to invest in better athletics shoes I simply narrowed it down to these two shoes simply based on popularity, reviews, versatility, and friends' opinions. I also didn't want to spend more that a Benjamin on REALLY good and properly fitting running shoes (Asics, Saucony, New Balance, etc.) because I don't run much. I tried both shoes on and hopped, skipped, walked, and jogged around the store on two different ocassions with two different friends and two different sales associates (for opinions) before purchasing one (a bit OCD? yes). The issue I had with the Nike Free's was the form it MADE you run.Read more ›

For me...the best running shoe ever but I don't run..I walk. Soft, flexible, and beyond comfortable. They keep my feet cool and provide enough support for walking. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Legs820

As someone who needs support from their shoes, these don't have any. I found them not to be good for working out.Published 11 months ago by Marina Roberti
my girlfriend loves these shoes. Sizes are true to their fit and have great quality build.Published 13 months ago by ruben_t
Good shoes, only bummer is the grooves in the sole pick up all the rocks.Published 15 months ago by Jessica
Extremely comfortable shoes for walking, but not enough support for running, especially if you have weak ankles. Dirt and rocks get trapped easily in the ridges of the sole. Read morePublished 15 months ago by OCC
