Love! This new Free Run+ is really a hot item right now and I couldn't resist buying them! I went into the Nike store, they didn't have my size, and I was so happy to find it on Zappos! Ordered these Saturday night, and got it on Monday afternoon. love the speedy delivery! When I opened the box, the vibrant hot punch color just made me so happy! How could anyone not want to run when they have this pair! I tried them on, they are so light. compared to the Airmax ones I previously wore to run. I was concerned after reading one of the reviews about the tongue of these shoes, but they did not affect me at all. They are so comfy, and light and i love it so much!

I previously had a pair of Nike Lunarglide 3s which I loved. After I lost them and was unable to reorder my old pair in the same color I decided to try a pair of Frees because everybody seems to love them. I loved the look of these shoes and really wanted to love the fit, but the arch seemed to hit me in the wrong place. I wore them around my house for an over an hour trying to convince myself that they were comfortable, but I couldn't. I really wanted to love these shoes but the fit just wasn't quite right.

Sadly, these are going back. I had the Free Run 2 which I absolutely loved, but I wore them out. Bought the 3s, but the mesh over the toe box is stiff, and they actually hurt after walking around the house for a half hour. I am going to buy a couple more pair of the Free Run 2 before they are discontinued!

Just got these today and used them during an Insanity workout. What a difference going from old Nike shox to these...so light and provides great cushioning! I will say for sizing, maybe try a half size up. I got my normal size (8.5) and they fit like gloves. but some may prefer a little more room. To give you an idea, my toes go right to the edge, but don't scrape. Usually in Nike shoes, I have a little space between my toes and the edge. I have also tried the new Nike Lunarglides +4. Those are fantastic as well and fit true to size, but just wish there were more colors to choose from.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these sneakers!! I'm not a serious runner and I do not have any health concerns, all I know is that I love to run in these shoes. They are incredibly light weight, comfortable (I have wide feet and they fit perfectly), and I have no problems with them. I never even felt like I had to break them in. They were ready right out of the box. The color is very bright (I have yet to use them without someone commenting on the color) but everyone loves it. I feel like they help me when running on the road because they help drivers see me. I would definitely recommend them!!!

I have orthopedic issues with my back and feet so I am always on the hunt for comfortable shoes. I am always looking for a lightweight shoe, with a very roomy toebox, which will provide comfort. Since I have a closet filled with gorgeous heels which are not an option for me, I look for fun comfort. These shoes more than fit the bill. I bought them yesterday and absolutely love them. I feel they run a bit small and I ordered a full size up.

Brands I'd also recommend: These are my current favs...I am hoping for black patent so I can make that my dress shoe ! haha...no really

I love this shoe. I have not purchased a pair of Nike shoes for at least 10 years. So glad I got this one. It is so lightweight, yet so comfortable. I love the color too! I have gotten so many compliments on them. They are bright and make me feel energized.

From the side view these look fine, but from the top... the laces are out of a traditional alignment pointing to your little toes. My feet looked oddly shaped when I wore these, so I'm returning them. I think Nike was trying to do something a little different, but it just came out weird. And they are very lightweight, so might not have the support I need for a run.

I love the color. But the tread on this shoe traps every piece of bark chips that I walk on and I have to take a pointed object to dig them out so I don't track it into the house. More trouble than I bargained for. I sized up a half size.

Sadly I had to return mine because for me they were not a great cross training shoe. They hurt my feet terribly during step and zumba. I developed a severe pain in my toes and couldn't step down on my foot for a couple days. They were very comfortable to walk in though.

So disappointed! I ordered these, my 3rd pair of Nike Free. I got the same size as previous (7.5) and they were noticeably more narrow. I hoped they would stretch, so I took them for a 5 mile walk...only to return with toe blisters and two raw chafe marks on the tops of my feet. Ouch!! I love Zappos and buy most of my family's shoes here...so not your fault. Nike, shame on you for tampering with a good thing!!

These are fantastic running sneakers. When I first tried them on, they felt much too tight, and I had the inclination to send them back. However, I decided to test them out. I'm so happy I did. During my first run, it felt like the shoe had molded to my foot. I feel completely supported, and like I'm running on marshmallows. I absolutely love these. They make me look forward to my next run.

Great shoes! Honestly look a bit awkward on my feet but they are so comfy that I don't care. I go to Pump classes and these shoes are perfect for doing squats. I am buying more colors!

Awesome running shoe. The arch support is present but not extreme. If you need lots of arch support, you will need an insert for this shoe. Very light, and flexible.

Love these shoes! Super comfortable. I have flat feet, and my feet do not hurt after walking long distances. From day 1 of wearing Free Runs out of the box, I never get blisters. Order 1/2 size bigger, for some reason they are not true to size. Nike should fix that. The only thing I would change is the tongue of the shoe, it doesn't stay in place as well as previous models of Free Run where the tongue is sewn to the rest of the shoe.

I love these shoes! The color makes me happy! They are so soft and flexible, even the heel is flexible and I love that! The only thing that I dislike is that when the soles get wet (walking through a puddle) they make a squidgy noise. So funny! I just turn up my iPod.

Well, Nike Free, you may be back in my life soon. I actually bought these for my daughter, but since we are the same size, I tried them on. I originally bought the Nike Free a few years ago and loved them. Then they changed the design and fit. I was no longer a fan. I am happy to say that I'll be buying these again for me. Nike has made them more cushy all over and better arch support. It can also accommodate the different shoe inserts (with even more arch support) that I tried. Why I liked the Nike Free so much to begin with was the elastic-y part around the lacing and wider toe box. My feet are different almost a whole size different and different in shape and this shoe really accommodates both comfortably without having to buy two different sizes. Now, my daughter, the one with the athletic bone in her body, actually runs in these and states these feel better than even the original Nike Frees. She also felt that the last ones she had were not as comfy as the ones of a few years ago. She got the coral/pinky ones - so cute. Thanks Zappos again for the VIP treatment (you know what you did). Plus, you satisfied my daughter's need for instant gratification with your overnight shipping.

I absolutely love these shoes! All I have to say is my experience with buying these shoes is similar to me getting glasses. I did not realize how badly I needed them just like I did not realize how badly I needed glasses until I got them. I had been living in a sub par world and was just unaware. I work in a restaurant and my first shift with these on they improved my energy and I had a body that did nit ache afterward! I cannot say enough how wonderful these are and they are so worth the investment! I feel like a new and improved person.

Love these shoes! They are super comfortable and lightweight. I am usually a size 8, but ordered an 8 1/2. They run about a half size smaller. You will not regret your purchase. Definitely worth the money!

I have never worn a more comfortable shoe. I am a restaurant owner and stand on my feet for 12 hours a day and until these Nike Free Run+ 3's I went home at the end of the day with sore feet/back/legs/hips and these are amazing. I'm not knocking New Balance but I must say goodbye to the 3 pairs that I have and replace with these Nikes. Also the color is awesome. I giggle when I see someone in the store staring at my shoes..Can't wait to try another funky color. Thank you Nike Free Run+ 3 your are a life saver!

I just got my Nike Free Run +3 in the hot punch color. They are so amazing! They are so soft and light. I've never worn a shoe that makes my foot feel like I'm walking on clouds, but this one does! The color is so bright. They are so unique and comfy. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
