Nike Free Run+ Review: Nice Transitional Minimalist Running Shoe, but Not Barefoot-Like

This review is long overdue, but it’s one that I have long felt compelled to write. When Nike first announced the release of the newest member of it’s Free line of more minimalist running shoes, the Nike Free Run+, I was highly critical of their marketing approach.

Nike Free Run+ Review: A New Runner’s Perspective

I’ve written a few posts here on Rublogger in which I was pretty critical of Nike for their marketing of the Nike Free Run+ as a barefoot-like shoe. I still stand by the points that I outlined in those posts, but I want to be clear that although I find it virtually impossible that any […]

Nike ACG Sneakerboat II – First Impressions

A few days ago I wrote a post about a new shoe that Nike had released called the Nike Sneakerboat II. It’s basically a water shoe/aqua sock that I thought looked like it might have some potential as a minimalist running shoe. Well, I went ahead and bought a pair of Sneakerboat II’s (only cost […]

Nike Free 3.0 Review – Nike’s Answer to Simulating Barefoot Running

I broke the following running commandment today: Thou shalt not wear new shoes on a 20-mile run. As generally happens when a commandment is broken, the wrath of the running gods was showered down upon me.
