When the Nike Free was introduced in 2005 (we first saw it on Meb Keflezighi’s feet on the cover of the September issue of Runner’s World that year), the shoe wasn’t really designed to be a running shoe. “A few biomechanically blessed runners will be able khổng lồ train in this shoe every day, but most of you will need a more substantial trainer,” we wrote about the Free 5.0 in 2006, saying the shoe should be used “for speedwork only, or khổng lồ walk in as a training tool to help build up the muscles in your feet và lower legs.”

A few years later, the barefoot movement took root and the Free was more broadly adopted for jogging on blacktop. Nearly every manufacturer turned out exceptionally thin & flexible shoes at the time. That didn’t over well, as a lot of runners got injured and shoe soles got thichồng soles again, quickly.

The Free is still around, however, và is once again being positioned as a training tool. When showing us early samples of the new Free RN 5.0, Nike’s hàng hóa team said the shoe is really intended for foot strengthening—it can be used for runs up lớn 3 miles.

This new Model, however, vaguely resembles the insanely flexible models of the barefoot days, with a radical new shaping lớn the foam midsole.


Super-Bendy SoleThe DNA of any Free shoe is its ability to lớn be rolled up, nearly inkhổng lồ a ball. The Free RN 5.0 has a new groove sầu system, with lots of cuts through the foam across the foot and just two running the length of the shoe. But each slice is curved and angled to lớn maximize the shoe’s flexibility. To deliver some structure and stability, however, the sole has a pod-like, bulbous design—it’s thicker and more stable in areas where you’re prone to wobble.

To ensure the shoe remains as light as possible và not inhibit flexibility, there’s nearly no rubber on the bottom. A tiny pod on the heel, where your foot first makes liên hệ, và one under the big toe provide the slighdemo bit of abrasion resistance. Testers appreciated the mix of flexibility và support the thiết kế offers. “The Nike Free has been my go-to lớn shoe since the 3.0,” said one tester. “The new kiến thiết is really nice and in many ways completely different from past versions. It has a ton more stability and a lot fewer rocks get caught on the sole of the shoe.”


Barely-There UpperThe super-stretchy mesh & synthetic suede overlays got mixed review from our test team. Most felt they didn’t offer nearly enough structure to lớn stabilize your foot—especially on turns or in khung drills. That could be due to lớn the novel lacing system. We found the four attachment points troubling. There’s little option for adjustability and the laces cover a smaller section of your midfoot, leading some to feel insecure.

We all loved the roomy toe box, however, as it felt lượt thích a slipper và, without any seams, could be worn sockless during drills.

“I have always liked the Nike Free RN for their great flexibility và fast ride. These shoes, while still super flexible, seem to lớn offer a bit more stability than ones in the past. I think that feature only will make them attractive khổng lồ a broader spectrum of runners. I didn"t seem khổng lồ notice the road as much in these as I do in my previous Frees. Compared lớn the Hoka One One Evo Rehi, these are a quieter shoe, but both offer great flexibility and a fast ride with ample tư vấn for those that are used lớn a less structured shoe.”
