Personal trainer Tavia Ambler reviews the new Nike Free Run 5.0 women’s running/performance lifestyle shoe
As a personal trainer, running shoes are very important to me. I wear them 6 days a week, sometimes for 14 hours a day, so they need to be comfortable and supportive. I have been an avid supporter of the Nike Free running shoes since they came out a few years ago, and now they make up every runner in my wardrobe.
The new Nike Free Run 5.0 are the most comfortable shoes I have worn. They are incredibly light, so your feet don’t get sore and feel heavy, but they also have enough support and cushioning underneath and around the foot. People who are used to wearing a very supportive running shoe may take a little time to get used to the feel of the Nike Free 5.0 runners, and I would suggest transitioning through. Start by wearing them for walking, and then start to include them more into your everyday routine, gradually building up to wearing them for running and cross-training.
The shoe is designed to help make your run more comfortable and has features that mimic barefoot running. However this running shoe also has the support to help create a secure feel and a natural range of motion within the foot. This will allow you to develop a more natural running style (as well as help strengthen all the muscles in your feet).
For me, they were the best thing for my running as I had terrible before the Nike Free Run 5.0 I had terrible troubles with my Achilles. After changing to the Nike Free Run 5.0 the pain went away and I felt a much better rhythm while running.
Although the Nike Free Run 5.0 shoes are designed for running, they are also a really good travel shoe (because they are so lightweight) and also great for walking and everyday activities. I would recommend them to anyone!

Concave football boots have just arrived at Sportsmart! We’re extremely excited about offering this revolutionary new range to our customers. Concave football boots naturally complement the shape of a football. Footballs are convex in shape and the boots create a ‘cup’ for any football. This allows players to kick with more accuracy, control and power.
These football boots are far more consistent than standard football boots. In fact they have a sweet spot which is four times larger than other football boots! This is achieved with the uniquely shaped and patented concave element which as mentioned previously ‘cups’ the ball. Tennis racquets and golf clubs operate on the same concept with larger sweet spots which are able to provide the player with fewer margins for error. This unique feature is sure to provide you with a huge advantage on the field.
There are four styles in the Concave range: Quantum1, PTX1, T1 and KZ2. Each style varies in quality and technology. For further information on each style you can click on the links. All of these styles are available at Sportsmart both in store and online. Purchase any Concave football boots online and receive free shipping.
