    Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Nucleus MC+ Running Shoe:

    After 2 years of nagging from my best friend the marathoner I started running last year, only to have horrible luck with shoes which lead to stress fractures in both my shins. I have a super high arch, but I severely over pronate, I had a heck of a time finding shoes that fit and by the time I did the damage was already done.

    This time around I decided to give Nike a chance and I am SO glad I did! These shoes are amazing! I haven't had any of the problems I had last year running and find that now that I'm not in pain I actually enjoy it! These shoes provide all of the support I need for the over pronation, but they are not heavy and weighing me down like previous shoes. I find that I can run further and at a much higher pace without my feet going numb or my shins aching! I will definitely be buying another pair of these ASAP so I have a new set on stand by when its time for new shoes! Buy a half to a full size larger than you normally would, they do run a little on the small size, but if you order up you should have no problems! :-)

    Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Nucleus MC+ Running Shoe:

    This shoe is the greatest! Nike normally doesn't receive the reputation of having a high mileage running shoe compared to it's competitors. Most runners steer me away from Nike in regards to the durability on longer runs. I have worn Brooks Arial (known back in the day as the Beast) for 8 yrs and decided to try Nike. Seriously out of the box they feel great. They are a little less "beefy" and stiff compared to other motion stability shoes and that is what I love about them! They are flexible enough to be comfortable and adapt well to your running gait and the type of pronation you may have. I love them and give Nike new respect for putting out a great long distance running shoe.

    These felt great out of the box & are great motion control shoes. They do not flatten your feet when you run or change your gait. Instead, they redirect your feet. I have primarily worn Asics over the last 20 years, but I have to say that these are more comfortable on the pavement. Keep it up Nike!

      I love this shoe. I am a beginner runner, and they are my first motion control shoes. They have eliminated my runner's knee problem which was caused by overpronation problems. I was worried when I read a review saying that I should get a full size larger, but the roadrunnersports service people reassured me that I had ordered the correct size, and they were right. (A 1/2 size larger than my normal shoe size is perfect for me).

      These shoes are great for runners who over-pronate. They are are bulkier than any regular shoe, but they provide the shock support necessary for the longer runs. I've been running in them for 2 weeks now, and they have provided the comfort I need for longer distances

        I love this shoe.....this was the first Nike running shoe I have had. I always bought Asics before this but I find this shoe to really minimize shin/ foot pain I have experienced in the past. I do have low arches and I over pronate. This shoe cures this and I am running longer distances more comfortably than I ever have. I am disappointed Nike is discontinuing this shoe.

        First....in this shoe's defense....my feet are difficult to dress. I'm a flatfooted overpronator with bunions. I've been trying to break these shoes in for a couple of weeks. It has not been working. I have a blister on one toe and sore ankles. I hurt even more with my orthotics in. One good point is the cushioning. That is great. It would make great walking shoes but running is another story.

          Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Nucleus MC+ Running Shoe:

          The biggest issue I had was finding sneakers that weren't too tight in the toe box area. Even the wide width of some brands were a tight fit---my feet are wider, but they're not THAT wide! These sneakers have been perfect for me. I had runner's knee prior to purchasing these sneakers, but the pain went away after about a week because I'm finally wearing supportive shoes that absorb impact superbly. I'm glad I didn't send these sneakers back after a test run---it took 2-3 runs before my arches stopped hurting because my feet had to adjust to the arch support. I always wear an 8, regardless of the brand, and the 8.5 fit perfectly. Definitely recommend that you buy these shoes a half size up! RRS is the best and I plan to order from them again in the future.[...]

            Comments about Womens Nike Zoom Nucleus MC+ Running Shoe:

            I bought these sneakers recently based on the conversation I had with the representative. I am flat footed and need heavy cushioning under the ball of my foot. I also need the sneaker to fit orthodics. I communicated by email and answered a survey about the needs of my feet. The response was rapid and the rep listened to what I needed. Even though the color stripe of the sneaker is not a color I care for the fit was more important. I had a back and forth email exchange with the rep. I even looked for the sneaker on other sites to compare prices which were comprabable. I like the sneaker[...] I think the ball of the foot could use better cushioning, but because I think I need a half size smaller I can't say this for sure yet. My biggest concern is having to send the sneaker back[...] I have referred this company to a friend who has trouble with her feet because I think the professionals know what they are talking about and it's great customer service. So, all in all great review. [...]

                  Well I was hoping these would work because they look so good! But gotta say my feet went numb pretty quickly, even loosen my laces, and still one foot stayed numb. This happened on two runs and decided they just plan suck.

                  I absolutely love mine!!! Always ran in ASICS and seems like they do not have as much cushion as they did once. Always afraid to try Nike but no more! Good forefoot cushion, excellent feel.

                  These shoes are great for runners who over-pronate. They are are bulkier than any regular shoe, but they provide the shock support necessary for the longer runs. I've been running in them for 2 weeks now, and they have provided the comfort I need for longer distances
