If you've owned a pair before, you will know they run 1/2 small (though you should always order a running shoes 1/2 size larger for the proper fit). Also, I would say these are more for narrow fit, if you have wide feet I don't know how well they will work. I recommend trying them in a store first (Finishline or the likes).
Also, Nike shoes usually run pretty small and narrow (at least for my foot). I was very surprised to see this shoe so wide. I enjoyed seeing that as now I might purchase a pair for me. The size I purchased was a 9.5 for my daughter. The shoe was pretty wide and my daughter said they felt nice and fit her foot perfectly.
These shoes did NOT work for me. If you love the old 5.0s, do yourself a favor and don't even try these. Switch to a different brand. I don't know what Nike was thinking, even giving these the same name. Within a week, my tendonitis was flaring up like crazy, even when I reduced my mileage. If the stability of the wider base is not important to you, I'm sure these are great. But they are nothing like the old 5.0s.
Even with that, they would be a 4 star, but the quality of these is also not up to par. The upper is glued, rather then sewn on, which makes me nervous for how they will hold up. The tongue is a horrible thin cardboard feeling thing instead of the comfortable plush on normal Nike shoes. It scraped up the top of my foot after one wear (yes, I wear socks, but super low rise socks, so the top of the tongue touches the upper top of my bare foot). I'm not even sure who approved this design, it's awful.
Also, the Nike 5.0 tennis shoe is also great for just every day wear. As a student going to college at a university requires a great amount of walking, and I was looking for a dependable, comfortable and stylish tennis shoe that I could wear to class every day. The Nike 5.0 has many different colors to chose from such as black/turquoise, orange/pink/black, yellow/ black, and also just your basic white and black which is what I own. Along with wearing these tennis shoes for running or walking to school, they would even be stylish with a pair of shorts for when the summer season rolls around. The majority of the shoe itself is made up of a mesh material allowing your feet to breath which is wonderful. With a majority of the shoe itself being made up of mesh, its often difficult to keep your feet dry on rainy days.
Not only is the shoe comfortable for running, everyday walking and also fits your stylish needs, but the price is also affordable. The Nike Free 5.0 is less than $100 which is very reasonable for a tennis shoe this great. Amazon gives a variety of sizes so they are destined to have the size you need at an affordable price.Read more ›
When I got them I had been looking in 6pm.com, because they always have good deals, but when I was going to get them; they were $59.99 and the last day before were $50.99 so I checked it out in amazon and they had the same nikes and the same price for $50.99 sold by 6pm.com, I could ordering directly with them, but they had changed the price.

I received fake Nikes. The fit was not the same as the other pair I have. Very poor quality/materials and workmanship. Can visibly see messy glue and poor stitching. Read morePublished 16 hours ago by GregD
