Vibram vs Nike Free vs running shoes

I've heard a bunch about the Vibram 5 fingers shoes. I was a huge skeptic of them at first but now I'm thinking of getting some. My buddy got some along with a few people at his work and they swear by them. I tried them once and felt they were pretty affective and would probably help in training (not looking to race in them) but they were a little big for my feet. There are youtube videos about them if people are interested in learning more.

I then heard about the Nike Free shoes. Suppose to be more "basic" but aren't as broken down as the vibrams. I do not know much about those shoes but wonder how they would compare to the Vibrams.

Or do some feel they are just gimmicks and not to waste your time or money with them and get normal running shoes?
