I decided to buy myself a new pair of trainers to motivate myself to stick to a healthy lifestyle. Having something new to wear will surely make me want to get my butt to the gym so that I can show them off. I’ve been eyeing up a pair of Nike Free Run Trainers since, well, forever. From the adverts where they bend and twist the trainers into shapes no other trainers could replicate, to the images of the pretty colourful Nike Free Runs all over the internet – it’s difficult not to want them!
Nike Free Run Trainers are designed to give you more of a barefoot feeling when wearing them. There are different numbered versions of the Free Runs. On a scale of 1-10, 1 is running barefoot like Adam and Eve and 10 being the standard trainers these days. Mine are a 5.0 so it’s comfortably in the middle of the scale, a great way to introduce yourself into barefoot running. I’d like to try the 3.0’s next.
I’m not much of a runner, in fact I’m not a runner at all so I can’t say how good the Nike Free Runs are for running. However I have worn them to the gym for cardio, weight lifting and aerobic classes and they’ve been great. I’ve found them to be super comfortable and supportive throughout all of my workouts so I am very happy with my purchase!
Despite the beautiful array of colours available, I went for black because I’d like to wear them casually too and style them with athleisure outfits like these lovely fashionistas. I love that the Nike Free Run 5.0s are so versatile and can be worn for workouts and for fashion too, really reducing my cost per wear! My next pair however, will be a lot more colourful. I mean, just look at how pretty they are!
