Hate Socks?


The new NikeFree 5.0 running shoe boasts barefoot technology that is supposed to strengthen feet for runners. I just designed this pair and plan on taking them for a run even though I’m usually a fan of socks. Supposedly you can wear them with or without socks, but I see most people wearing them without. They look sleek and they’re flexible so you can literally fold or compress them into a gym bag. But here’s the deal—runners need support. I’m always iffy about these lightweight running shoes. Let’s see what happens…

UPDATE:Absolutely love them! They're soooo comfortable. My step feels lighter and it seems like the muscles in my feet are working harder. I've been wearing them with thin sport socks to avoid making them unbearably stinky. Also, if you have big feet, the NikeFree will make them seem smaller. I can't believe how teeny my feet look in them! Great sneakers--whether you hate socks or not!
