Product Details

The NIKE® Free 5.0+ men's running shoes take their cue from the workings of the bare foot while still providing protective cushioning on impact. They're crafted using Flywire® technology for a snug-yet-flexible fit, and flex grooves in the Phylon® midsole enhance natural motion for a more efficient stride. Rubber outsole lugs deliver dynamic, dependable traction.

Key Specs:

  • Model Number: 579959
  • Classification: Cushioning
  • Breathability: Yes
  • Shoe Weight: 8.4 oz (size 9.5)
 

Features

 

Benefits

  • Upper Material: Flywire® technology
  • Minimizes overlays and maximizes strength
  • Midsole Material: Phylite®
  • Phylite® is lighter than rubber, but heavier than Phylon® and functions as both midsole and outsole. By eliminating a separate midsole and outsole, the weight of the shoe is greatly reduced and flexibility is increased.
  • Outsole: Rubber
  • Rubber outsole is long-wearing and durable.
  • Lacing System: Asymmetrical Lacing
  • Asymmetrical lacing increases the ball contact area on the shoe.

Additional Info

  • Flex grooves in midsole allow the foot to move in multiple directions
  • Adaptive innersleeve moves with the natural motion of the foot
  • Supportive, lightweight no-sew overlays
  • Minimal sockliner follows the curves of your foot for added comfort
  • Impact-absorbing waffle outsole pistons
  • NIKE®+ compatible
  • Drop: 8 mm
  • Imported

              This is my second pair of Free 5.0. I'm still using my first pair, with over 1,000 miles on them. I walk 20 to 25 miles a week and these shoes feel like you're walking barefoot.

                        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.

                        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!
