        Followed the advice of others and ordered half a size larger than I normally would - I am a 6.5 and ordered a 7 - and the shoes fit perfectly.
        I absolutely LOVE these shoes. Comfortable, good looking, and really get the job done no matter what I am doing. I run, walk, hike, yoga, lift, and do strengthening circuits, and these shoes have performed well no matter what.

        Never bought Nikes before, so so so happy I bought these.

            Tried the nike free 5 and those caused my feet to hurt badly. The nike frees have been great for me till the free 5. I returned those and went back to the free 3. They felt like a welcome relief! Live these shoes. I wear with orthotics, but also occasionally wear without and my feet seem ok either way.

            Comments about Womens Nike Free 3.0 v5 Running Shoe:

            This is the best natural shoe I've ever worn. Very light weight, allows natural foot movement and bend, and low heel-toe drop. Reasons for rating a 4 rather than 5 are tread wears out very quickly (probably a trade-off for the light weight); doesn't come in widths; and thick seams around rear center of heel collar sometimes irritate. But overall still the best natural shoe I've ever worn.

            I bought this shoe in pink w/ 1/2 up, after reading the reviews. It is totally comfortable. The only thing I don't really like is that you have to slide your feet in, because it doesn't open up. You have to wear really thin socks, otherwise I love working out in them ;p

              Comments about Womens Nike Free 3.0 v5 Running Shoe:

              I've run up to 11mi long runs on the treadmill and love how comfy they are. I Ordered a half size up based on other reviews and they fit perfectly. Toe box is roomier than the 5's. Tongue is now sewed in so it doesn't shift like previous models. I didn't think I would like the knit-like cover but as soon as I put them on I knew how cool they were. The black squares on bottom wore out after my first run, so I question how long they will last. Other than that, love them.

                I got this shoe for my daughter and had to send the first pair back because they were too small, I went up a whole size and it barely fits her. She has less than 3/4 inch of wiggle room.

                  I love the Nike Frees. I just started transitioning to the 4mm drop a few months ago and these are great. I have narrow feet therefore I don't find the small foot hole to be a problem. These may not be the best shows for someone with wider feet as the tongue is attached. I don't suggest running on trails with these because rocks will get in between all of the bottom slits what help the shoe move with your natural foot movement. These do run a little small. Smaller than version 4. If you are worried about room for your toes, order the shoes a half size larger than your normal running shoe size.

                    Very comfortable. The sole design is supportive, yet thin enough that I can feel everything under my foot, which gives me more awareness of my environment and therefore more stability and confidence (like a lowered race car that can really hug the road). Extremely light-weight, flexible, breathable, and have great traction on most surfaces. I'd say the only con to these shoes are that they loose their grip on gym floors when the sole is dirty. I usually wipe them down when I get to the gym and they get their amazing grip back. Its true you may have to get a half size larger. The pink and grey colors get a lot of attention.

                          Maybe good for walking but not for extreme cardio or combat with plenty of jumping. I thought that it would be suited for my gym use in cardio training/combat, but did not work for me. Feet hurt during and after extreme cardio/combat work out. Maybe it will work for some.

                          I am training to walk a marathon, and these shoes are awesome for long walks and short faster ones too. So comfortable - like wearing a sock with a sole. I have always loved the Nike Free line, and this is defintely the best yet.

                            Comments about Womens Nike Free 3.0 v5 Running Shoe:

                            I first bought the Nike Free 5.0 when they came out a few years ago and ran in the same shoe, multiple races and marathons for over two years without complaint. I only looked for a new shoe because my toes were starting to show through the upper fabric. I like the minimalist style and feel the 3.0 is the closest to what I've been running in for the past year, after wearing down my shoes to almost nothing. My only complaint (and reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is that the tongue is attached to the shoe, so the laces are really uneccesary. In fact, I even took my laces out and find that it's much more comfortable that way and I can just slide the shoe on and off. It looks a little funny that way, but I care more about comfort than style.
