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

"Alors la Nike je suis bluffé sa faisais longtemps que je cherchais une chaussure comme celle la pour courrir.Je fais du hand mais pour courrir quand il y n'a pas d'entrainement elle ne sont pas adapter mes chaussures de hand alors que mes Nike Free Run+2 m'offre une tenue du pied parfaite et un confort incomparable.Il est dommage que ce sois un peu compliquer de les mettre par contre.Chaussure de course a pied uniquement.La partie pour mettre son pied est fixe il n'est pas possible de bougé la languette pour faire passer le pied facilement.Très satifais et à recommander sans hésitation a ceux qui aime avoir de la matière sous le pied pour amortir les choc.On ne sens presque rien!"

"I love to run and do other strenuous activities. This shoe is amazing and feels great when running. Only downer is that it has no ankle support so playing basketball in them is a problem. Otherwise love the shoes."

"When I purchased these shoes, the fit felt amazing in the store. I walked up and down the aisle, and things felt in place. They were a bit high in my price range, but I felt that quality would compensate for the extra money I was investing.
I took the shoes out for my first run just two hours ago. I usually run up to, and sometimes exceeding 10 miles depending on how I feel around that last mile. Somewhere during the second mile, the shoes became and instant nightmare. I felt from the beginning that my stride was a bit different, but I pushed along, and the comfort level I felt in the store was non-existant from then on. I trudged on for another 4 miles hoping that it was just in my head and that I needed to just get acclimated with the shoes. It was just worse and worse. I was exerting much more energy for half the output. My Nike+ sensor reflected those numbers into actual proof that I was struggling. 10 miles? I couldn't even finish. I couldn't go on after 5.85 miles, FAR less than my average goal. The discomfort was that unnerving. These shoes aren't just a blow to my time, but also to my morale. I'm hoping I can return them, otherwise, I don't have another pair of shoes I can wear for a long time because those aren't going on my feet ever again and I can't afford another pair. Even the drive home was uncomfortable.
I felt like I was wearing a pair of frying pans.
I'd recommend these to the casual runner. Scratch that...the park dog-walker. Nothing fast-paced."

"this shoes are built up in the heel and almost force you to run heal toe, which is not what barefoot running is about. The shoe is extremely flexable which is why I orignially wanted it but after putting about 30 miles on them i relized how bad being that flexable is with the combination of the heel rise. However they look cool but are not worth the price. Also the nubs on the toes felt awesome at first. I felt like I was getting more out my run at the beginning, but they wore off in about 2 weeks, making me feel slugish. The Shoe was also only good for about 100 miles, for the price I want them to last a lot longer than that, all of my other shoes I have bought have lasted at least twice if not three times the lenght of these."

"1 . they look far better in real life than the pics.
2 . The user that said that they feel like wearing a sock was not exaggerating one bit.

"I regret buying these shoes from the first time I ran in them. They are light, flexible and comfortable for casual wear.... but that's where the good stops. I average running 16-20 miles per week and these shoes are not comfortable enough (in my opinion) even for that little amount of running. I like wearing these to the gym but I will not be running in these anymore. My calf muscles hurt and these shoes don't provide much support. Amount of cushion isn't great either. Read reviews on a legitimate running website before making a decision to buy these shoes."

Think about the shoe you are buying
on31-Mar-2012
Did you really think that the shoes would have a lot of support or cushioning? and your muscles need to get used to the shoe, its probably a much different shoe than most are used to running in.

"After doing a lot of research of comfortable, durable, and performance shoes, my decision kept coming back to these shoes. I got these about a week and a half ago, and I got to admit! These are one comfortable and cushy shoes. I work in a Warehouse all day, standing, packing and lots of heaving lifting and these shoes perform very well. I added my own in-soles which are 3x bigger than the one's that come with the shoe, and I only had to get the shoes half a size bigger ( not a problem to me ). One thing I noticed was, you do not have to break these in ( the material of these shoes are soft and have lots of air flow). On windy days I can feel the breeze go through my shoes. Hard to explain but you'll know what I mean if you own these! Lol The reason why I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars because of the price but then again, they alway say, can't put a price on a great pair of shoes. So all and all, I am satisfied with the shoes and looking forward to build my own colorway on NikeId because it's only $30 more. Great job on this product Nike."

"Easily one of the more comfortable running shoes that I've used. I was a little worried about durability and comfort because I'm not the lightest guy, but these have held up well. My Max Air 2010 shoes feel like running with bricks on my feet compared to the Free Run+ 2. The only issue is a minor one: be prepared to pick rocks out of the grooves after running. I run on paved streets in my neighborhood and small pebbles will get stuck in the shoe due to the design of the sole. But the sole is what makes the shoe perform so well, so this is a minor issue and shouldn't deter anyone from trying it. Overall, I'm very pleased with this shoe."
