In the beginning, there was the only the foot, and it was good enough. With all the current buzz about the benefits of barefoot running for strengthening the feet and legs, preventing injuries, and improving balance, stride, and posture, Nike has created lightweight, highly flexible shoes to simulate the effects of barefoot running and training called Nike Free. This new shoe not only protects the feet from some of the hazards of barefoot running in the city, but also distributes the landing pressure over a larger area to reduce stress on the legs, knees, and back. Never run barefoot? Don't worry, Nike includes a training guide with most models of these shoes and on NikeFree.com.
Overall Rating forNike Free 4.0
Best shoes made by NIKE
Nike NEEDS TO REALLY BRING BACK THIS STYLE OF SHOE. EXACTLY THE SAME, NOT TWEEKS OR TUNES. I STILL HAVE MINE FROM 2006 WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT THEM. THE ONLY THING THAT HAPPENED WAS THAT THE SOUL FROM STARTED TO TURN YELLOW. AND MINOR SOUL WEAR. YELLOW BECAUSE OF TRACK RUNNING NOT BECAUSE ITS A FLAW.

This model is the best shoe in the free category. Comfort, durability, and style. Style is lacking in the newer versions.
