I’ve had my new Nike Free 3.0 tennies for a week now AND I have exercised/ran/ jog/ walked for 6 days out of that 7. SIX! This has not happened in a very long time. Surprisingly, actually buying new workout gear did inspire me to work out. You can get my first impression of the Nike’s in the video below. But my week long impression is that these shoes are amazing!
