At the outset, I inform that the Nike Free TR 5.0 comes as the successor of 3.0. My experience in using the shoes from this manufacturer is at least a decade old. Every time, I leave my personal review as I buy one and use it for several months. However, it is not true that my only habit is to buy the Nike shoes. I often compare between the similar shoes because I, practically speaking, am a shoe junkie. So, I cannot wait to let you know what I think about it provided it helps you guys.
Before I bought it, I had thought that I would be required to write, “Blah, blah, another minimalist shoe I have got!” But, I could not keep my fondness for Nike away from my wishlist, and I got it. To start, I would feel free to say that you can easily use Nike Free 5.0 TR as your daily trainer if you have got a biomechanically efficient running habit.
A very promising first impression:
The color and texture of the pair when kept together creates a truly striking appearance out of its small box. While the lower is borrowed from its predecessor, the update is noticeable on its upper. Also, the Dynamic Flywire is introduced in its midfoot lacing system which is an impressive update in this new version. The flexible and unstructured build is somewhat an expected aspect. It can be rolled up into a small ball without being highly pressurized. Also, one can twist the shoe completely around. The unstructured build does not essentially limit the possibility for you having flexible feet in it.
The sole unit to break the conventional settings of a minimalist trainer shoe:
Users do not have to get worried about the minimalist name because no users will feel short of making longer runs in them. As cushioning is a much needed feature by which comfort comes, it packs much more cushion than it seems to do. As a trainer shoe, it can easily outperform any other shoe. Also, its flexible and lightweight nature will be huge plus. If you are a runner with biomechanically competent head, you will obviously appreciate its heel-to-toe differential.
Features of Men’s Nike Free 5.0:
- Lightweight mesh uppers which are lighter, thinner, and more breathable than other most shoes
- Its forefoot having Ultralight Flywire cables incorporated offers dynamic stability and support for quick and sudden movement

User reviews of the Nike Free 5.0 Men’s:
Depending on the comments and explanations of most users, this shoe is an outstanding introduction for the runners because of its ability to generate mid-foot strike with a considerably lowered flexibility and heel without having any gimmick used. Many users are also happy to have it for their day-to-day use as a trainer shoe. Despite the many advantageous matters, some users said they did not find it to be true to its size. Also, some got a firmer feel since they allegedly revealed that Nike uses Ohylon EVA foam in its midsole.
Finally, I can say with adequate trust in the manufacturer that you will be more or less right with your purchase of Men’s Nike Free 5.0 if you do not like to buy too many pairs of shoes over a few years.
