Comments: The feel of these shoes does not reconcile with the description of a "natural" running experience. With the 8mm drop and rear cushioning, they are more fitted for a heel striker. As a mid-foot striker, they feel like an odd combination of a true barefoot shoe but with way too much drop. On the plus side, I like the tongue and lacing design, and they are light and comfortable for everyday/walking/gym. I just can't see any use for them as a serious running shoe.

Comments: Full disclosure, I got these shoes comped for me. I can't run in them since they're for work and I need to keep them fairly clean; not that I would want to run in them anyway. They fit pretty true to size, and are a touch wider than your typical Nike last. They fit around the forefoot similar to my Pegasus 30's. The heel, though, is a sloppy mess. Its comparable to the lunarracer 3. There's no heel counter and allthough the collar fits well enough and you don't have to worry about heel slip, I still find it anoying. It also doesn't breathe super well, but its a really comfortable shoe regardless

Comments: I transitioned to this pair of nikes after wanting a shoe that was lightweight but still with good arch support. I traditionally wear asics but couldn't find any new asics that fit so I purchased these instead. I tested them out on a 6.5 mile run last night and I felt they provide good support. I'm not sure how yet how they will perform for longer runs but I wanted them for my 5 and 10k races this year(1 per month)

Comments: I was a tester for this shoe and it's an awesome nike free shoe. It's 5.0 and if your a minimal runner don't jump to the 3.0 right away. It feels like you have no shoes when you run and gives enough space in the toe box to allow natural spread. I put about 100 miles on em and they were still intact with minimal wear. Used these to train for Bataan death march and got a PR for the race just running in these. I will probably end up buying one of these pairs.
