I had been doing the insanity workouts, and my feet were getting sore. I had been wearing just the plain Nike free runners, and I really didn't think that my shoes could be the problem. I was wrong. Feet sore no more, these are great shoes for intense jumping type workouts. I suppose you could wear them for anything, but that's how I use mine. They fit me very well, and they are super comfortable. They are more form fitting than regular tennis shoes, more narrow, no tongue, more ankle support etc.

This is a gorgeous looking shoe, but unfortunately it made my feet sore during Insanity workouts. Pros: I love the criss-cross pattern. I figured the basket weave construction would help hold and support my feet during lateral movements. The heel cushioning is great. Cons: I was getting sore feet during the workouts. Unfortunately, these shoes made it worse compared to my old Nike running shoes. I know Nikes tend to run narrow, but was never a problem for me. I have owned several pairs of Nike Frees and really like them. However, these lack good padding in the forefoot, even by Nike Free standards. The toe box was so cramped that 123-123 and Heisman type lateral movements made my feet sore. It has great laterally hold in the shoe's upper, but the base is so narrow that it causes the foot to cramp. I want to like these so much, but alas I have to try something else.

These are some great kicks with a unique design. Very comfortable, lightweight and supportive. I picked up the platinum ones which look white in the pics but are more of a light gray to off white color. This works for me because I can never keep white shoes clean! Free next day shipping is also killer! Every time I use Zappos it's awesome!

The Fit: Sneakers fits just about true to size to about a quarter size larger. Note if you have wide feet this sneaker does not contain a tongue and has a narrow opening, you may want to try out multiple sizes. With thick socks it takes some forte to put them on luckily the sneaker does contain a very sturdy pull-tab. The lacing system marketed as a "Chinese finger trap" works nicely and provides a very nice snug fit. The shoes upper sole section is very flexible, the mid-section and back section are stiff and offer little lateral flexibility if any. Performance & Comfort: Performing calisthenics and plyometric activities the sneakers provide good support, comfort and felt snug. Under steep downhill running my feet didn't slide in the shoe like they do in other sneakers, however, under tiptoe conditions in Yoga they did slide. During yoga I was wishing for more lateral and total sole flexibility so Yoga fans you may want to consider a more flexible sneaker like the Nike Free Trainer 3.0. Note: Nike numbering system implies level of flexibility with 1.0 running barefoot and 10.0 being a regular sneaker, as of this writing 3.0 are the most flexible version of Free Trainers currently offered. Recommendations: I highly recommend these sneakers for general walking, aerobics, plyometric, and even short distance running/jogging. The sneakers provide a middle ground between flexibility and support. For Yoga enthusiast, you may want more flexibility and may want to cross shop with the Free Trainer 3.0.

Poorly designed shoe. Feet hurt every time I wear these shoes. Our entire coaching staff received a pair of these shoes and no one likes them. We all have complained how they have little support and feet will hurt after wearing them. I would not recommend these shoes to anyone.
