Review: Nike FreeRun +2

I had started a new hobby… going jogging. A good way of keeping fit i have been told. After a couple of runs in my ancient pair of Nike Shox and suffering days of aches and pains after that i decided on buying a new pair of running shoes.

I opted for the Nike Free Run +2 for their apparent barefoot running feeling. Apparently these shoes are built in such a way that they allow every muscle in the foot to work and flex as if barefooted.

As soon as they arrived in the post, and I had popped them out of their box, the first impressions were pretty good. Very lightweight shoes with a lot of breathable fabric. Thank god I got them in black as they would be a bitch to clean if they were white.

Now onto the running bit:

After putting them on and walking around for a bit, they fit just like a glove except on my foot. Very light….. actually when i was walking it felt like my foot was sitting on a cloud but i had the freedom to stretch my foot in any way I wanted.

Went for a 45 min run on a promenade till I fully break in the shoe. The shoe kept my feet cool but not cold, I could take strides in a lot nicer way and could feel the pavement, not in an intrusive way but in a way that I’m connected.

I used to feel searing pains in my feet and heels when i ran in my Shox but with these no pain, i can just feel that small areas in my feet are tight. They are probably my less used muscles getting some work.

I don’t really have any recommendations for these shoes yet as it has only been my first run. However if you are looking for a lightweight shoe i can tell you to try these out.

if you want more info on them…. head on over to Nike
