With low weight, high flexibility, and a personalized upper fit, the Nike Free Run+ 3 offers minimal cushioning and a semi-soft ride.


Important Shipping Note: U.S. sales only.


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.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I love these shoes! Very lightweight and comfy. These are by far the most comfortable shoes I own. True to size. I am wearing them right now while writing this review. The only thing I don't like about these shoes would be small rocks can get stuck on the bottom of the shoe, easy to remove though. You can't go wrong with this pair!

Comments: I love the fit and flexibility of this shoe. I wear them for sprints or running distances up to 6 miles. Only drawback is that they aren't vented very well. They are hot and do cause blisters because of the heat inside the shoe. I will not use them running in the summer, they will have to be a gym shoe until the weather cools.
