    I have worn Nikes and Nike Frees for years and have always worn the same size. After reading many reviews I decided to order a half size bigger than the Nike Free I was replacing. When it arrived it was still a bit too tight and I had to return it and get a full size bigger than the Nike Free Run I replaced.

    wife says: lightweight, great arch support, wide room for toes. now that i've run in these, i can't go back to my other running shoes. this makes your calves work harder, but reduces strain on the knees. relative to other shoes, there's less cushion on the heels, which make you want to land mid-foot.

    I LOVE THESE SHOES! However, I've ordered a different pair and had to return them already due to these shoes running extremely small! I'm usually a size 8-8.5 so I ordered this pair in a size 9. They are still a little too snug for my liking. I'm hoping they will stretch out a little with use. They are far too beautiful and expensive to return and try a third time!

    These shoes dramatically improved my shin splint pain. Their a little tight bc they run about a half a size small. But really comfortable. They're also really cute and are made of an interesting plastic-like material on the outer part that isn't mesh. But totally breathable. I absolutely love these shoes and will buy more in different colors. I'm kind of a shoe whore. LOL. They are expensive but if you want a quality shoes these are worth the price.

    About 6 months ago I purchased a pair of the women’s Nike Free 5.0+ running shoes. I am an avid runner and wanted to branch out from my normal Asics that I routinely buy every fall. I was immediately attracted to their sleek style and the many color options. I began using them right away and was very impressed by many aspects of the shoe such as their style, comfort, weight, and price.

    Style: While looking for a shoe that I liked, the variety of colors that the women’s Nike Free 5.0+ running shoes were available in really stood out to me. This could allow me to choose either a pair of a neutral color combination or one that really stood out. Also, the design was sleek and fashion forward.

    Comfort: Asics are a very comfortable shoe, and I was afraid that the Nike’s would not live up to the same standards of comfort as them. However, Nike exceeded my expectations. The women’s Nike Free 5.0+ running shoes are very comfortable, and their flexible soles allow for a wide range of foot movement. They never rub in the wrong places or give me blisters. While they are lacking in arch support compared to the Asics, the amount is not significant enough to cause me any pain.

    Weight: Since I am a runner, I am always in search of a shoe that is comfortable and supportive, yet still very light. The women’s Nike Free 5.0+ running shoes are lighter than the Asics and many other running shoes I’ve worn. This makes them very desirable to me as a runner.

    Price: The price of these shoes was $100.00. This price is very similar to other high quality running shoes in stores now. Also, since the shoes are so well made, I believe they will last me a long time to make them worth the higher price.

    I work in a hospital, so I'm on my feet all day, and I needed a new pair of shoes that would have some mercy on my toes. A coworker of mine, suggested these, so I went for it. When I first put these shoes on, I was really worried about the fit. I wear a 9.5 in my right foot and a 9 in my left. When I first put the shoe on my left it was TIGHT. I was really worried about how comfortable they'd be. I was a little scared. It was a struggle to put the shoes on, and they felt a wee snug for a couple hours, but after that, I noticed they stretched significantly. I've had them now for 3 weeks, and I wear them for 10 hour shifts, 6 days a week, and now I love them. They're a lot more comfortable than my Asics, which I had thought were the best shoes I had ever owned. I haven't worn this shoes for working out, so I can't really say much on that. But for being on my feet constantly, they keep me comfortable, and they do stretch if they're too snug. My only complaint is that I with I had gotten a half size bigger so I could fit some insoles in them.

    Size: 9 B(M) USColor: Volt/Summit White/Barely Volt/Med Base Grey Verified Purchase
    love this shoe...fit like a glove, sooo comfortable and light. Feet stay cool. The arch of my foot is a 7 1/2 and I bought an 8. I normally buy an 8 1/2, but I like a snug fit. Roomy toe box. Great neutral runner's shoe. got the white and grey one this past summer and plan to buy others- different color.
