    Not sure what to get for my next pair. I usually just use to run and go to the gym.

    Turned my 1.5+ year old Nike Free 1's into home slippers.

    I agree with RFX that Free's in general are comfy shoes to kick it in etc.

    I really want some limited release Nike's on the Free or Lunarsole...
    Also some Nike x Undercover

    Still thinking about these:

    You got the Montreals, nice. How are you liking them?

    Since you already have the Montreals with black uppers and white sole, have you considered an inverse colorway? The white uppers and black soled Free Run 3s is my favorite colorway, it's really nice.

    We're on there too, for about 10 years now.


    RFX: Have you ever tried brands like Brooks, Saucony, etc. that are oriented for running?

    I asked because since we're all sneaker heads, I wore Nikes to run for many years until I really got into it and switched to running oriented brands. Never switched back since.

    Those are the FR3? I personally still like the black/white sole instead of the reverse in your photo

    I like the darker top to sole color ratio personally.

    I gave a brief summary of the Nike MTRL on RP:


    The MTRL fit pretty slim width wise. A lot more than my Nike Free 1's.

    I used to run in New Balances and tried Asics and found the Pegasus & Lunarglides to be better, I even preferred the Frees when I feel like having that barefoot feel. I've been very happy with Nikes and found no reason to commit to another shoe at this point, not to mention other running shoes just have terrible design. I know it isn't something that should look great because it is meant to be beaten to death but it certainly helps that Nikes looks good, I can run errands in them w/o looking like I just came from the gym. It isn't going to replace Lanvin or MMM but it is much better looking than the designs Brooks, Ecco, Saucony, Ascis, etc... comes out with.




    :lol: I know it's weird but at the end of the day is it still a Nike tee which I can usually get for $7-$8 each at the outlets. I guess that is a mindset I haven't been able to get passed when it comes to Nike clothes.

    So people are saying size up .5 of a size for the Montreal's? I'm a size 9.5 in Adidas Climacool, size 8 in CDB, size 9 in Vans LPE and size 7.5 in Beckman's. Thinking a size 9.5 or 10 for the upsizing. Any thoughts?

    My Nike Free 1's were a size 9.5 and fit nice and snug

    And your Montreal's were 10.5's? Do you wear any of the other shoes I mentioned?

    Yup and I can probably wear a size 9 in Vans comfortably.

    Yup, FR3. That's cool though, color combo is a personal preference. The Free Havens are nice in that color combo.

    To me though, almost all white uppers and black sole is just a great colorway unless I actually plan to hike with them.

    2nd one is dope

    Regarding the Nike MTRL I have to say in hindsight if I had to choose a pair again I would have gone with size.11 as I have wide feet (E is normal right? So, I am a D width)

    After taking out the insole though it felt great. I have to also say they do not seem that breathable. '

    I love them nevertheless...Want to get a pair in size 11 now from the outlet store.

    Got the new Nikes in.

    Lunardglide+ 4, much better than Lunarglide+ 3. Lighter, more cushioned and overall a better running shoe. People likes the LG3s looks better but I like the minimal look of the LG4.

    As for the trainers, both are very stable shoes but the Lunar Edge 13 feels much closer to the ground, if you need to lift, this is probably better of the two. The Free Trainers 5.0 is more cushioned and feels like a better overall trainer shoe that you can do cross training with.

    Hrmmm RFX, Free haven 3.0's are available for $63 or so shipped right now. Would you still recommend after getting your Lunar Edges in?
