I've struggled with leg/foot (muscles, joints, bones, fascia, everything) and back, and even neck/cervical-related injuries for 15 years... which has led to my love/hate relationship with running. When I didn't know any better, I just figured Nike is the big brand it must be the best... but this was back when they had that AWFUL 'shocks' line with the four little pumps in the back... just horrendous. My problems got better when I went to New Balance, and stuck with them for a long time... and now their quality went down. I was never willing to drop $100+ on shoes... (although it was probably warranted, based on how much i spent on braces, medications, doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, etc.) and I gave Nike another chance after a colleague suggested I try them again.
I have never been so relieved. Both the Flex and Free running lines are perfect ... FOR ME. I will try to place some qualifications, because reading some of the more negative reviews really annoyed me:
FOR RUNNERS - you know, what the shoe was built for:
No shoe will work if you have poor form. I learned this the hard way, but if you master running technique, all that nonsense about how bad it is for your knees will seem like rubbish. Ideal form involves only the distal metatarsal area - the "balls" of your feet. If you are landing on your heels (what those old awful nike shocks seemed to imply was necessary) .. you are in for a lot of pain and suffering. Don't blame any shoe and work on that first. once you do... this lightweight design and greater focus on ergonomic 'ideal' running form works fantastically.
FOR NON-RUNNERS, who are looking at this for long days at work or anything else that requires being on your feet for long periods of the day... THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. You need heel support in that case, and ideal shoes for walking/standing exist and are totally different from what this shoe was built for. It's literally like buying a pair of jeans and giving a negative review because they didn't go well with the rest of your ballroom tuxedo.
