I just picked up my brand new pair of Nike Free 5.0‘s. My verdict: Stop what you are doing and buy a pair right now! I can not imagine owning another kind of sneaker ever again. This shoe is, in one word, awesome.
At approximately $85, the shoe is reasonably priced. It comes with the shoes and an extra pair of 4.5 soles. I’m sure there’s a difference in what the 4.5′s do, but I don’t know what it is.
I’m wearing the shoe right now, and it’s pretty cool. The shoe is super light weight and completely flexible. They look decent too. It feels like a cross between a sock, sandal, and classic sneaker. It’s without a doubt very comfortable, and Nike claims it strengthens your foot and prevents injuries.
The most revolutionary part? It’s the heel. You have to try a pair on to fully understand. Take it from me, this is the future of shoes. For now on, when I see a pair of astronaut-sized clunker shoes, I’ll just shake my head and smile.
