For those new to minimalist running, the Nike Free Run 3 offers a welcome break from traditional running shoes. Its midsole is light and flexible, but still offers ample padding and protection from the road. The slightly lowered heel allows for a more natural footstrike, but has enough cushion for heel strikers as well. The upper is secure and stretchy, with an adaptable arch that wraps your foot for a personalized fit.
