      I use these shoes primarily for in the gym and playing indoor volleyball. They are very comfy, with good breathability, and nice arch support. Not sure about how long they will last, but the last generation lasted me over a year so they should do well. The tongue is a bit shorter and will take some getting used to. All in all a really good shoe.

      This would be my second free run shoes. It's perfect for treadmill running, walking or just training at gym. Seems like made with great quality material, works with wide feet like mine and doesn't heat up when running very fast unlike my other running shoes which feels like burring when running 12 + mph.

      Comments about Mens Nike Free 5.0+ Running Shoe:

      Tread picks up a lot of rocks, be careful on gravel or dirt paths. Arch support not as good as it was in previous models. Buy a half size larger!!! I mainly use these for walking since the arches are pretty decent. I wish they would make a better looking walking shoe to go out in with this arch.

      I used this shoe for running and soccer playing and I found it awsome and comfortable. I really satisfied with the look on hand and the look on the picture. The size also just fit for me and I dont know why some people say it is tight, may be my foot is a kind of thin. I am having a great time and wish you have too.

                This shoe cured my plantar facsitas when no inserts or other shoes could. I highly recommend these shoes. You do need to ease in to wearing them if you've worn traditional running (highly cushioned) shoes.

                  I have been running in the Nike 3+ for the last year. This shoe is taking its place. Ordered almost full size larger due to some other reviews. Good thing because the fit is still a little snug. It seems the sole is a little stiffer which really is not a problem, it just feels different from what I have been running in. So far no quality issues and can't really say if the flywire system is a plus. Will see how the shoe performs after more miles and decide if I will purchase again.

                      Used Nike Free 3.0 in 9.5. Fit perfect. The 5.0's 9.5 is at least half a size too small. Hope it will loosen up the more I run in it, but am disappointed that it doesn't fit properly right out of the box.

                        Use this shoe as a secondary shoe in my gym shoe rotation. Primary to build-up my feet and arch strength. I've worn Nike size 12 for over 15 yrs. and this is one of the few shoes that I could barely fit into. Shoe was very tight at first, then loosen up a bit after a couple of workouts. Have to wear thin socks to get the correct fit.

                                    I don't have anything positive to say about these shoes. I've been wearing this style since the original free runs...which were the best...the version before last was "ok" but with quality issues. I thought this version would be better...I first ordered the size I normally wear, they fit too small...RR exchanged them sending me my original size (8.5) again plus one size larger. The new 8.5's fit fine in length but had a noticeable bump this time on right foot. I've just had too many quality issues with the free runs to recommend them anymore.

                                      Comments about Mens Nike Free 5.0+ Running Shoe:

                                      Nike did it again! I have several Nike Free's and their new Free 5.0+ running shoes definitely does not dissapoint. It is super flexible, comfortable and provides an extremely smooth ride. I not only love to run in them, they are also a great shoe to wear all the time!
