Product Description

More minimal than the Nike Free 5.0+ and more cushioned than the Nike Free 3.0, the Nike Free 4.0+ Men's Running Shoe provides the foot strengthening and flexibility benefits of natural motion without sacrificing underfoot protection or multi-surface traction.Advanced FlexibilityThe flex groove outsole - made up of deep cuts along the length and width of the midsole - enhances natural range of motion, encourages a smooth, efficient stride and helps maintain stability.Super-Low ProfileA low-profile midsole delivers a more barefoot-like feel than the Nike Free 5.0+, with a 6mm offset between heel and forefoot height for a blend of cushioning and flexibility.Plus, the Phylite material in the midsole is tough enough to double as an outsole, dramatically reducing the shoe's overall weight.Seamless and BreathableThe seamless upper provides exceptional comfort and fit with minimal no-sew overlays.Unlike the previous version, the upper features large mesh panels on the midfoot that increase airflow for enhanced breathability.Nike Free OriginsAfter learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university's golf course, three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion.The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.Learn more about Nike Free.More Benefits*Textured mesh full inner sleeve for a dynamic, sock-like fit that hugs the foot*Tongue-wrap construction for easy on and off*Di

    The shoes fit perfectly. Probably the most comfortable piece of footwear I have ever placed on my feet. They have very soft soles, an although they are intended for more of a "barefoot" running style, there is plenty of cushion for running heel-toe. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    This was one of Nike's best Free models. I am sad with the direction they are going now - way too busy. But I love these shoes with all my heart. I have purchased this model from Amazon, Zappos, wherever I can get my hands on a pair I like. 1+ year old and still going strong. I clean regularly and look out of the box new as with all of my 20+ pair of Nike shoes.

    This review is for a casual, one to two miles a day runner. Throughout this review I will cover such criteria as the design, versatility, comfort, and the various customizations available for these Nike Free 4.0 V3's.

    Design
    At just 9 ounces per shoe, these Nike's offer a barefoot-feel running style, while still giving your feet support over any surface. The sole flexes to match the form of your feet as they move, making it feel as if your not even wearing any shoes.

    Versatility
    Although these are classified as running shoes, they are also great for going to the gym, walking, and even just wearing around town. These Nike 4.0 V3's are well worth the 99-dollar purchase price when considering the versatility of being able to wear them for nearly any occasion throughout your day.

    Comfort
    Wrap around mesh and premium arch support make these one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever owned. The outer mesh acts as a barrier to the outside elements, while still providing you with soft and sturdy support on the inside. The mesh also helps in reducing irritation to your feel whilst still offering breath-ability.

    Customizations
    Another great feature of these Nike running shoes is that they can be ordered in various color patterns. Nike gives you six different color combinations to choose from: white/back, grey/white, red/back, yellow/grey, blue/black, and orange/blue. This gives you, as a buyer, greater freedom in choosing a color scheme that fits you best.

    Conclusion
    As a college student in the harsh weather environment of the Midwest I have exposed this pair of shoes to extreme conditions. After five months of putting at least one to two miles a day on these Nike 4.0 V3's I am still extremely satisfied with them. They still are held together and appear to be in the same condition as the day I bought them.

    This shoe is great for the gym, running, or just wearing around town. This shoe came highly recommended from family members and they were correct - it's a great workout shoe. The fit is a little snug, if I could order again I'd probably get a half size bigger than what I normally wear.

    This is my 3rd pair of Nike free running shoes. The previous two are 3.0 plus and before that I was wearing Asics GT. All I can say is that with the GT my knees would hurt if I do more than 4 miles in about 9 min/mile pace. After switching to the Nike Free, I could do the same pace and up to 8 miles with no problem what so ever.
    I am size 8 EE and wears size 9 with these. The toe box is large and comfy. Note: I do run with these without no socks.

    I was forced to order shoes online after finding that few to none of the stores in my area carried the 4.0 V3 free runs any longer:( Apparently they have been replaced with the newest 5.0 model by Nike which NOONE seems to be purchasing! There has been a huge change to the arch of the insole on the 5.0 and this made them so uncomfortable that my daughter tried them on once and refused to try another pair. We bought these shoes 10 minutes after getting back home from our day long trek through the mall and surrounding shoe store outlets. Absolutely no complaints from a happy customer!

    These shoes are great. I already owned a pair of Nike Free, so I knew what to expect -- but I like these even more than my first pair. I can highly recommend these, and I got 'em at a great price too. Delivered on time. Absolutely no complaints here.
