Cons: When I first got them, they wrinkled in on my toes and were a little uncomfortable because of that. That worked out, though. Also the rubberish material on one of the toes has started cracking a little bit (just from running/walking. I haven't stumbled on anything.) Also the tread is a bit slippery. Also the back of the heel crumples in a weird-looking way when walking, but this is purely aesthetic - doesn't make it feel worse. Minor qualms.
Pros: Super comfy, reasonable support, fits my foot well which is a little rare since I have slightly wide feet. I've had them for about a year now, and they're not my primary shoes but I've used them a lot and the slight cracking I mentioned is the only deterioration - pretty durable. Also if something gets stuck in the tread on these it's super easy to get out, 'cause you can sorta "Open" the tread, since there are big cracks up into it than bend open.
For the Nike Free family, the number (e.g. 3.0, 4.0, 5.0) refers to the cushioning (a 0.0 would be no cushioning). As far as I know the 3.0 is the most minimal cushioning available for this line, and thus represents something far closer to a minimalist shoe than a regular shoe. In addition to the thin cushioning there are grooves that go from side to side across the shoe and a grove running from toe to heel. The side to side grooves are very thin, while the toe to heel groove is a bit wider. I'm not positive as to what the toe to heel groove does, but the side to side grooves give a good amount of flexibility to the sole (like a minimalist shoe, it is flexible enough to roll up into a ball). A downside to these groves (especially the thin side ones) is that debris gets stuck in them easily. Since they are tiny gaps this usually involves tiny rocks. It isn't hard to remove debris by any means (you can just flex them and it drops out), though it may prove to be an annoyance mid-run if something gets stuck. The shoe has good traction on the ground, though I have only used it in dry conditions thus far. The upper part of the shoe is light and flexible. The upper body is fairly breathable, and I haven't had any issue with it getting too hot or sweaty. Rather than an independent tongue and lace structure the shoe is built kind of like a loafer. Thus you can slip the shoe on, and tighten the laces to adjust the fit. It is also worth noting that these shoes are very light. Mine are around 7.2 oz (.45 lb).
Overall I think these shoes are great for running on the road, and I definitely recommend them.
Overall I would either look for a different style shoe or a earlier version of the Nike Free shoes. I will probably look for an older version 3 and try to hold out for a version 5 which will hopefully take from their previous designs.
wearing them around. They are really good for your feet because they don't have
alot of support which is good for your feet. These shoes are great for all ages
and they last along time .
I have a pair of them. I wear them around and they are really comfortable . When I go to school or hangout with friends I wear these shoes. So these shoes are great for hikes running races or wearing around there
good for your feet.
They are really good looking they come in different colors and the Nike sign also comes in different colors. The cost of them is around 50 to 75$ at most. So if you're a runner get the Nike Free 3.0.
