Ok here it goes, I have to admit that I really like running in the Nike Free 3.0v5. Number 1 reason, I love the fit! I put it on and forget it, I don't have to worry about hot spots blisters or tightness, but it's not sloppy. Number 2 I like the smoothness of the ride, it's flexible and just lets my foot do what it wants to do. I have tried other shoes, brooks pure flow, saucony Kinvara 4 and newton distance, but none have been able to knockout the Free. I know it's often thought of as a fashion shoe but it works for me and I am ok with that!
Now for the "shoe-ho" side of me, I would like a little firmer / more responsive shoe for speed work. Any recommendations?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
