As you know it I'm a self proclaim Nike girl, a broke one too after every shopping spree, i remember my brother bought me my first pair of nikes when i was 12 and I've never looked back, i wish i took photos of every one of them that served me well, and they did! i wear my sneakers everywhere to class to netball training, sprinting to the gym, i even wore some till i could feel the floor, my 4.0 depreciated to a 1.0 and i still didn't want to throw it away because finding the right pair of shoe is not easy, every single time i had to throw it away because I've fully utilised it, my heart cringe just a little knowing that i spend so much life experience with them. sad but true, no one would understand unless you live in your sneakers!
So a little enlightenment for today is knowing which model to pick for your Nikes, my favourite range is of course the Nike Free not only because they are so light, but i like being grounded to the ground especially when i do my exercise. A good pair of shoes could make you or break you while lifting weights, for those who take weight lifting more seriously I've suggest that you opt for weight lifting shoes but darling they are not the prettiest mind you but hey for me Nike Free works like magic, it doesn't have too much of a cushioning that you feel like your on the balls of your foot a lot, i love the 3.0 and 4.0 range, it would be different for everyone, this is not a paid article, i just love sharing what have worked for me.

NIKE FREE BENEFITS
Allowed freedom, your toes will flex and grip, setting off a natural chain that exercises muscles normally neglected in traditional footwear.
Exercising these muscles allows athletes to achieve small performance benefits, adding millimeters to a vertical leap or shaving milliseconds off a race time while strengthening key stabilizer muscles that help prevent injury.
The outsoles of Nike Free shoes feature siping (deep slices) and reverse flex grooves to encourage flexion and extension in both directions. With a lightweight, seamless upper atop the flexible outsole, Nike Free shoes merge the natural, healthy motion of a bare foot with the protection of traditional footwear.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NIKE FREE 3.0, 4.0 AND 5.0
In the Nike Free continuum, the lower the number in a shoe’s name, the closer it is to barefoot running. On the continuum, 10.0 represents conventional footwear while zero represents the bare foot.
