Sure people rip on me for them... but I'm sure as hell not trying to impress anyone by the shoes I wear. To me that is fucking LAME, unless I'm going out or something, then I bring something classy.

As for not seeing people lining up at races with them it's a training shoe, not a race shoe. When competing I grab my Saucony's.

I've been a personal trainer for a few years now, and while that doesn't mean anything considering I work with plenty of incompetent fucks, I would have to say they improve the way I run and I definitely prefer them when working out to normal shoes.

Then again I've never been one to rush out and by the latest trendy clothing or accessories, I just don't care. Before someone argues that I did just that by getting these, I inherited them from my best friend when he died and his mom gave them to me. He was also a personal trainer and swore by them.

Not trying to garner sympathy by the above statement, just stating my 'why'.

I had the original Nike Free's too, biggest waste of money. Cannot comment on the new ones though.
I had the originals and loved them for about a month until they started falling apart (literally). I picked up a pair of 5.0's about a year ago and have been wearing them since. They have the perfect balance of support and ground feel and are a million times more sturdy. Thing is, I wear them with no socks (like all of my Sperries) so they smell like queef.
