My newest Nike Free 3.0 V5, printed:
I love this mosaic print look. These are more expensive than regular Nike Free 3.0s. They are $115. I figured I could use them a lot since they are black and white and therefore would go with everything. The same shoes on Nordstrom's website look exactly like the ones I got, even though I ordered mine from Nike.com.
I actually also like the Nike Free 5.0s in the photo below. But not as much as the ones I got!
I received them yesterday and actually already wore them today for my workout! I have to say though, these fit really tight on me. My other Nike shoes are size 6, but I ordered these in 6.5 because I wanted a looser fit to give room for some swelling. But the opening of the shoe is pretty tight and hard to get my feet inside. If you don't own any of the 3.0s, the tongue is completely attached to the sides of the shoe, so you have to sort of jam your feet in. These just feel much tighter than my other 3.0s in half a size smaller. When I wore them today for my workout, I felt they were kind of constricting the top arch of my feet and cutting off my blood flow! I think I'll wear them a few more times though, just to be sure. They might stretch out a little. Nike allows returns within 30 days even if you've worn them. So I have some time to test them out. What a shame though! I was totally set on keeping them.
So if you are interested in getting these, I'd definitely recommend going up at least half a size from your normal Nike size. Here are some pictures of them on me:
The bottom has grips, kind of like wearing grippy socks in pilates:
I like the color combo of these and think that they will go with a lot of outfits. I got size XS which is what the size chart recommends. They come in a very small box, and they look tiny when not stretched!
I didn't even read the description when I ordered these, but apparently they come with a carrying pouch. Cool!
Here they are on me... I think the size is ok, but it's kind of tight in between the toes. I wore them around for about 10 minutes and they felt ok, but if I take an hour class and move around in them, that could be a different story. Hmmm... but I don't know if a size up would be too loose for the rest of the feet. I think I'll just take a gamble and deal with it.
