Nike-Free-3.0-2015-Laces_thumb.jpg

The Nike Free line of running shoes was originally designed to mimic barefoot running on grass. All shoes in the line are characterized by an extremely flexible sole, and the three models vary in upper construction and the amount of sole cushioning. The Free 5.0 has the highest heel-forefoot drop and a more traditional, though […]

Nike Free 5.0 2015 Review: Yes, You Can Run in Them!

Over the past several years the Nike Free 5.0 has consistently been one of the best selling athletic shoes in the United States. Go to any school and you’re likely to see many kids sporting the flexible and colorful 5.0s. When I was in Disney World earlier this year the Free was probably among the […]

2015 Nike Free 5.0, 4.0 Flyknit and 3.0 Flyknit Released Today

Nike-Free-3.0-2015-sole_thumb.jpg

One of my favorite running shoes from last year was the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit. In fact, the 4.0 Flyknit might be my favorite Free of all-time – my only real complaint was that the lacing put a bit of pressure on the top of my foot with extended wear. In contrast to the 4.0, […]

Nike Zoom Elite 7 Review: Versatile All-Around Trainer With Room for Improvement

Nike Zoom Elite 7

I haven’t followed Nike’s offerings for that long. In fact, the only Nike shoe I’ve spent time running in prior to this year was the Nike Zoom Streak XC 3 (now sold, with an updated upper design, as the Zoom Streak LT 2). This year I’ve run in three Nike shoes: Terra Kiger v1, Kiger v2 and […]

Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 2: A Fantastic Update

Nike Terra Kiger Sole

It hasn’t been that long since I first wrote about the original Nike Zoom Terra Kiger in my June review.  I was pleasantly surprised by the shoe and found it very nice for smoother trails, and even mixed runs as the shoe ran quite well on pavement. Only a short while after my review I […]

Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 Running Shoe Review

Nike-Zoom-Pegasus-31-sole_thumb.jpg

For a long time I would not have considered trying a shoe like the Nike Pegasus. I generally like shoes that are lighter and lower profile, but over the past couple of years I’ve come to realize that a higher drop shoe will work fine for me if it has a relatively soft heel. I […]

Nike Zoom Terra Kiger Trail Shoe Review

Nike-Terra-Kiger-front_thumb.jpg

By David Henry For a brand without a strong history in the trail market, Nike has created quite the buzz with their latest offerings: the Nike Zoom Terra Kiger and Nike Zoom Wildhorse. Both shoes have a lot of features that will appeal to a wide range of runners, and Nike has even gone so […]

Nike Pegasus 31 Video Features Slow-Mo Gait Footage of Mo Farah and Melissa Bishop

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31

Nike knows how to create killer marketing material, of that there is no doubt. I came across the promo video below for the new Nike Pegasus 31 a few days ago and thought I’d share – it features Mo Farah and Melissa Bishop, love the slow-mo gait lab footage! I actually bought a pair of […]

Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Review: The Best Nike Free Yet?

Nike-Free-4.0-Flyknit-side-sole_thumb.jpg

I’m going to start this review with a bold statement: the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit is the best Nike Free shoe I have ever worn. Writing that opening line is a big deal for me because the original Nike Free 3.0 remains one of my favorite shoes of all time. That shoe was lightweight, ultra-flexible, […]

Nike Lunarglide 5 Review

Nike Lunarglide 5

I recently purchased a pair of Nike Lunarglide 5’s for a consulting project that I was working on. I didn’t really know much about the shoe, and it’s not one that I’d considered before because it has a bit more heel to forefoot drop than I typically like in a running shoe. But, when I […]
