    Size: 7.5 B(M) USColor: Titanium/Black/Fuchsia Flash/Hot Lava Verified Purchase
    The new 2015 model is so much better than the 2014. I've been wearing Nike Free since 2.0 came out a few years ago. Some years I love them and some I don't, 2014 was a big waste of money. This is definitely an improvement but my favorite of all was 4.0!

    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).

    My daughter loves the Nike Free's. They came brand new in box and exactly as described. They fit my daughter pretty well and they look really nice. Now, I might be a little picky in mentioning this, but if I am going to pay $112 for a pair of shoes I want them done right! It seems to me that Nike is getting a little sloppy with the gluing on the shoes. For some reason, on these shoes, I could see the glue. It wasn't all over the shoe, but I could definitely see it around the areas that the shoe was glued. I thought this was very sloppy of Nike. But...overall.....the shoe is a good fit and looks nice.

    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.

    First, the fit: order 1/2 size up, and they will fit perfectly. (I take a 5 in pretty much everything, and need a 5.5 in these). Second, my review is somewhat biased, because I'm comparing them to the OLD Free 5.0. I loved the old 5.0s, they were incredibly comfortable and provided fantastic stability while still feeling like wearing nothing. They were a great compromise for my particular feet, I have tendonitis (needing stability) and ITBS (needing minimalism).

    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.

    I bought a pair of the Nike Free 5.0 tennis shoes over four months ago and I absolutely love them. I avidly run about three to four miles a day so I was on the search for a very durable, and reliable tennis shoe. The hexagonal flex grooves allow your foot to move naturally with every step you take. The rubber pods on the bottom of the tennis shoe, give my foot enhanced traction and stability while running or walking. The Nike Free 5.0 tennis shoes are therefore the best pair of running shoes I have ever boughten. They’re body make up is so light it almost feels like you’re not even wearing tennis shoes, which makes running much more enjoyable.
    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.

    Size: 7.5 B(M) USColor: Black/Volt/Hyper Pink/Anthrct Verified Purchase
    I love my nikes they look cute and also, they fit exactly how I expected and I always wear 7.5 size.
    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.
