On a scale of 0 (barefoot) to 10 (regular running shoe), these new Nike Free shoes sit right in the middle. While they can look odd, they're comfortable and as the numbers get lower, much lighter.
- Stretch upper is designed to fit like a second skin.
- Low foam density lets your foot feel connected to the ground.
- Heel-to-toe grooves on the outsole and side of the midsole flex to give optimal flexibility with every step.
- Asymmetrical lacing system is placed on the side to relieve pressure on your instep.
- The absence of a heel counter gives freedom to your heel area while providing lockdown.
It's been a long time since I've owned a pair of Nike Free shoes and these look quite futuristic. Currently listed as a 'Members exclusive'.
While I like the white version you can see above, this darker version buried below the rest of the content looks even better:

The full title of this piece is in fact "Arrested Development season 5, part 2 review: The show must not go on". There are many spoilers in his review and he goes on to say:
Everyone knows Arrested Development ended 13 years ago.
Ouch. Arrested Development is one of my favourite pieces of TV, easily in my top 3 but there's little to disagree on in this review.
Seasons 1 to 3 hit it out the park. Multiple viewings are essential. Season 4, I think, also requires multiple viewings. Second time around it worked far more than I thought it did although it never hit the same highs.
Season 5 is OK, but no more. Franch covers it pretty well and the quote above is unfortunately true. I'll always give it unlimited time and watch anymore they make, but Netflix and/or Hurwitz haven't quite managed to keep the formula working.
