Saying all that, they are soon to be retired, as you can observe from the images, the shoes are falling apart. I do not use them to run long distances, but they do come in useful for long walks. They will be superseded with the Nike Free 5.0 v4 - something I will write about in another article.

The beat up and old Nike Free v1
I own a pair of Nike Free 5.0 v1 which I've had for over 5 years. They are well worn, and are about to be retired. I do not have much to say about them except they are one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on. From the first time I tried them, it felt like putting on a sock with a sole. They flex well with the foot, but they do take some time to get used to, as when you first use them, you do notice sore arches and shins. My ex-wife used to label them as "ballet shoes", but Kitty Kat likes her pair, and has become accustomed to them in a short period of time.
