The Nike Free Run+ 2: Barefoot-like feel, shoe-like benefitsTaking a cue from the intricate workings of the bare foot, the Nike Free Run+ 2 Men's Running Shoe is designed to maximise the foot's natural range of motion while providing protection and cushioning for a smooth ride.BenefitsInner sleeve for a snug fit and enhanced breathabilityBonded synthetic overlays for super-strong, flexible supportFused Phylite midsole and outsole for an ultra-lightweight, resilient rideDeep flex grooves along the outsole for natural range of motion and flexibilityFitDesigned to keep the foot in place without restricting movement, the Nike Free Run+ 2 features bonded overlays for excellent support. Lightweight and flexible, these thin strips are attached to the mesh upper for a streamlined fit. The inner sleeve provides a snug feel, yet it's dynamic enough to move with the natural motion of the foot.FlexibilityDeep flex grooves along the outsole allow the foot to move naturally in multiple directions. The heel features a "centre of pressure" design that provides additional cushioning on contact, maximising overall flexibility.CushioningWithout sacrificing the feel of barefoot running, the Nike Free Run+ 2 Shoe delivers a plush, cushioned ride. Phylite material seamlessly fuses the midsole with the outsole, creating a one-piece design that's as resilient as it is durable. The moulded sockliner mimics the curves of the foot for a comfortable, supportive fit.OriginsAfter learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university's golf course, three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, just like bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure-measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion.The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.Additional DetailsAsymmetrical lacing system to help reduce pressure over the top ridge of the footWaffle lugs at the outsole for impact absorption and tractionNike+ ready

"This one is an excellent shoe! Highly recommended.
I am starting to run reguraly, just to stay in shape during a difficult exam period cause I do not have the time to go to the gym as I used to and I decided to get a good shoe; that is what this shoe is. A great running shoe, extremely comfortable and really light (The material is very thin and soft so you cannot tell you are wearing a shoe), also giving a great support to the feet and toes! Moreover, it is really stylish, which makes it an all-day shoe, not only used for running! I am absolutely glad to have chosen this as my first proper running shoe and cannot wait to test it on my first long run, since I only ran about 2 miles today! Do not think about it twice; this shoe is perfect for everyone, both amateurs and experienced runners!

"I had LunarGlides before and I thought they were good. These shoes blew them out of the water! They are so comfy and that is the main thing you will notice when you wear them in adoration around the house for the first week. Then you realise they are running shoes so you decide that you should really go for a run and it is like having the weight of just having bare feet but the cushion and support of any other Nike trainer! You can feel the wind going through your feet and cooling them down as you run!
Only one problem with them. When I walk around in them I have often found a small stone or similar stuck inside the gaps in the sole of the shoe. That's a little bit annoying.
To be fair the amazingness of this shoe dwarfs out the annoyingness of the stone thing. The shoes are like a naughty dog - it does something a little bit bad but you forgive it easily and then it does something funny to really cheer you up!
I LOVE MY SHOES!!

"Have just started running again after a break of about 1 year and decided to see what all the fuss about nike free was about. Ive never been too fussed about running but these trainers have changed my mind. The fit is so comfortable and i was suprised by how flexible they actually are. In the past ive used shoes which have been all about cushioning (citius/thorus style) but the free run 2 is much better. I feel i run in a more more natural way now and plant my foot more evenly, its probably due to this that i dont miss the cushioning. I do feel my calves a little but part of this can be attributed to my level of fitness. Have only done short distances so far so couldnt comment on comfort after longer milage.
Have one pair for running and have ordered another for casual use. Have used them a few times at work and they are great, so breathable (you can feel the air on your feet when taking strides) especially when combined with dri-fit socks. Great shoe, definitely worth a try!

"I have been running for @ a year now and was always running in Vomeros. Read "Born to Run" and decided to have a go at barefoot running but thought I needed a half way house, then read about these shoes.
Bought a pair from the Nike store in Cardiff and couldn't wait to get home and try them out.
I must admit I am sold and now do all of my runs in these. they are so comfortable and have helped change my running style and have also increased my pace.
Have just bought a pair of 3.0 so looking forward to an even more minimalist shoe. watch this space for the next review :-)
Highly recommend these shoes.
BTW I am a UK size 11 but wasn't listed as an option"

"I partly tore my achilles tendon about 24 months ago and these have been the only trainers I’ve been able to run in (currently doing about 8 miles a week) it's like running bare footed.
I would recommend this shoe to anyone especially those who need a shoe after an injury, the best running shoes I've ever owned.
I use these for road running for the past 3 months and the soles are not visibly worn.
(My actual size is 7 but i couldn't choose this for the review)."

"I have worked at one of the Nike Factory Stores for over 3 years now and it is easy to see why we barely ever get any of these trainers in as they still sell so well at full price. I have always been one to wear Lunarglides or Vomero's to work and indeed for running, but I can quite safely say that neither compare to the Free range. Whether it be for gym use, walking around in all day or road running, I find these trainers faultless. The flexibility of the outsole and the breathability of the midsole combine for a supremely comfortable and stable ride, and while I know it sounds obvious from the name they really do make you feel as though you are walking around barefoot. I am a pretty light guy at about 10 and a half stone, so cannot comment on whether they are great for the bigger bloke but all I will say is that, coming from a Nike employee, there is no shoe that I would wear to work, go to the gym or go for runs in except these, they are leaving alot of my trainers as display shoes in my room now!"

"Excellent shoes. A friend recommended the Nike free running series and described them as 'like you're wearing no shoes at all!'. My old running shoes we're in need of replacement so I ordered a pair of Free running shoes. They did not disappoint at all! They feel much lighter, I can go on longer (might me a mental thing though) and they look awesome!"

"I originally owned a pair of Lunarglide 2's I think, but they were quite big and bulky and I didn't really get on with them. These on the other hand are much sleeker.
They feel great, and I haven't had a single problem with them. They also build incredible calf muscle! Something to do with the Free Run aspect of the shoe I believe. They're also great for all my gym activities.
And to top it off they look fantastic. Very happy man, and I highly recommend them."

"I own LunarGlides 1 & 2 and Vomero5's which are all great for stability/cushioning. For any newbie runner, I think cushioning in shoes is great as you slowly build leg muscle, endurance, and pain tolerance. jajaja!
I am a natural mid-foot runner, but shoes with way too much cushioning force me to heelstrike way too much. If you are looking for a natural motion and some speedwork...Why bother to force your cushioned shoes to do what they are not intended to do?
I'm glad I graduated from cushioned shoes! Not only do they weigh more and feel bulkier, but their design force runners to land on their heels. OUCH!!!
I have found both speed and comfort using the NIKE FREE RUN+2. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. But, their 7.7 oz design will help you improve on speed, performance, and also bring a smooth ride. The first day I tested these shoes I ran 7 miles...I had only thought of running 4 miles. he-he-he.
