    I use these shoes for everything! I am a free run fan all the way. I got the first free-runs and have the new ones as well. These shoes provide the comfort I need when I am walking around and standing all day at work, as well as are perfect when I want to hit the track and do a mile. They are perfect for everything and anything.

    I use them to go hiking, and even climb trees! The bottom of the shoes create traction and even work for climbing.

    The design of the shoe works with jeans, khakis, chinos, and almost everything.

    I wear them to wherever. I am still in school as well, so walking around campus is a lot, and these shoes last all day.

    I plan wearing them forever and ever!

    These are perfect and worth every penny!

    My son wore these to only 3 indoor cross training workouts and the paint on the tow rubbed off. Bought a red pair and a grey pair. Both had paint wearing off after the first wear and now look shabby after just a few wears. Love Nike, wear mostly Nike but these were a lot of money for something that falls apart so quickly!

                        I already own a pair of Nike Free. I was replacing my worn out shoes with the same model. My size was not available at my local store, so I thought it would be safe to order on-line. the new shoes feel like quarter size too small. If I had purchased in-store I would have gone up a half size for confort.
