    I'm not diggin' the upper, but the new 5.0 sole looks pretty good.


    I wonder why the 4.0 costs more this time?

    Probably because it is Flyknit.

    And I agree - the upper is ehhhhhh. I like this years model much more.

    The actual photo looks OK.

    Stocks look hideous.

    Prob only grab a pair or two depending upon color way.

    Good to see the msrp on the free flyknit go down. And a more traditional silhouette.

    the simple colorways look better in the stock photos, but i can imagine these will look great with the right combination of colors. i'm looking forward to seeing what they're like in person

    ooo these are interesting. at first seeing the first post with those stock photos they were weird looking, looked narrow and thin and much lower to the ground. hard to believe they were 5.0 free runs.

    but actual photo looks better. at least it looks entirely different, not like the FR3 to FR4 where they looked almost like the same upper design.

    Ahhhhhh man. I like how the toe box is back to low profile like the 3rd FRs. I feel like this year's model looked a little bulky.

    Not bad the sole looks interesting.  I'd like to see some more CWs.

    I'm not too sold on the upper of these yet, but I'm curious to see how Nike improved the Free outsole.  From the pictures posted so far, the bottom of the shoe looks much thinner than the current 5.0 model.  They actually look more like a 3.0.  Oh, and hopefully the 4.0 Flyknits don't disappoint.  For $125, they're the cheapest Flyknit shoe yet.

    i like it after seeing the new actual pic.

    i like the upper design. a drastic change in the upper from the previous 2. the upper design really makes the 5.0 sole seem thinner. can't wait for it.

    Agree with most, stock photos don't look all that appealing but right cw make this shoe look really nice. That Teal/Volt cw looks sick. Peek at Free Flyknit 4.0 looks really nice.

    I love how the 3.0s look! But does their design give off a moccasin type of a look to y'all? They look like they could be some N7 Frees...

    I never planned on getting these, but a friend gave me a pair when i came by his shop.  Came away very impressed.
