The Nike Free 5.0 is a running shoe. As part of the Nike Free series, it is designed to provide the feeling and natural foot movement of barefoot running. It features a NikeFree midsole, engineered vents, and rubber heel inserts.
When compared to another running shoe by Nike, the Nike Free 3.0v2, the 5.0 has some advantages, such as the synthetic suede upper, providing a more flexible and lightweight material.
The NikeFree midsole provides the shoe with increased flexibility, as well as being able to strengthen the wearers foot. The engineered vents of the shoe give the wearer's feet increased support and breathability. The rubber heel inserts give the wearer of the shoe more control, as well as adding durability for the shoe itself.
The Nike Free 5.0 is available in men's sizes (8-13) and woman's sizes (5.5-8.5).
