I've been having issues lately with Nike sneakers which is sad because I've worn this brand of sneaker for well over 20 years. I ordered a 8.5 (1/2 size up from my normal size as recommended) and had to send them back as they were too tight. Ordered a size 9 and these seem to fit fine. The only thing I don't understand is why is Nike designing sneakers with relatively pointy toes?? It looks strange, not to mention that design makes your feet look enormous. I can't say I "love" these sneakers, but I think I will develop a fondness for them the more I run in them. I wish Nike had stuck more with designing functional and practical sneakers instead of leaning more towards the fashion side. I've been a long-time fan of their products, but they seem to be missing the boat lately which is disappointing.
Bottom line: Would I recommend these sneakers? I think they are pretty good if you don't mind sneakers that have a pointed toe look.
Regretted not buying
I went through the Shoe Dog process and tried various recommended shoes by the staff. I need neutral for stability, and width B. The final decisoin came down to a pair of Nike Vomero and the Air Maxx. I REALLY wanted the Air Maxx but just couldn't bring myself to spend the extra money on that particular day. The Nike Vomero have been great, but I have been watching the Air Maxx ever since so that I have a pair for rotation purposes. They just might have fallen into my price range. If I do make the move and buy them, will post a follow-up on how well they are working.
Great for High Arches
I have high arches and have been wearing Nike Air Max and Air Max + shoes for years. I cannot wear any other running shoe. They are excellent for high arches and for cushioning. You need to buy a 1/2 size larger than your regular shoes (as indicated on this website) or the toe will be too small. The only downside for me is that they are bulky/heavy, but I cannot run without the cushioning. I have no problem trading heaviness for proper arch support and cushioning.
Not for anyone who likes room in toe box
I bought these shoes as my final trainers & race shoes for the 2012 Marine Corps Marathon. They were fine for a week or two then noticed a pain in the joint of my right toe. As I tapered it went away, but came back during the race. At first I didn't attribute the injury to the shoe, but my chiro agrees that it most likely was the cause. If you like a roomy toe box this shoe is definitely not for you. I am a VIP and plan to return these.

I love these shoes
I've had knee, back, and nerve problems recently (pathetic). I first bought the 2011 Max Air because I assumed that expensive = plenty of support. It turned out to be true. I loved those shoes. They aren't the most durable, but they're worth it--so comfortable. My knee problems have virtually disappeared. I still use the 2012s, and will probably buy another pair before they sell out.
Awful shoe if you like good cushioning!
I am a 10 mile a week runner, 5'9" 155 lbs. I usually run in a Nike Zoom Vomero (like running on cotton balls!), and thought I would try this one. NOOOOOO not the same at ALL. This shoe is very stiff. It should feel a part of your foot, and it is very clunky. Not for me. It also seems to run long as well, so even more awkward! I don't get why the price is so $$$$ for this shoe!
Consistently best shoe I've tried
I've purchased several pairs of Nikes for my running/walking/gym workouts. By far my favorites are the Nike Air Max +. They wear pretty well. Most importantly, they're very supportive and are comfortable from my first run. I've got the 2011's, 2012's, and plan to buy the 2013's as well. It's worth it to me to spend a bit more (the VIP discount helps, though).
Love this shoe
I've been using these shoes while increasing my distance. They are great even after a long run. I now wear them all the time if I can help it. Great cushioning and they absorb the impact. I use them hard and they stand up to the test. There was no break in period for these shoes. The only downfall is that they are not a wide shoe.

Love LOve LOV LOVE this shoe!
I went into the store and did the fitting and got this as my first fitted shoe. OMG I am walking on cloud 9!!! So very comfortable! I have to wear orthodics and they work great. Bought a second and third pair, just so I can trade off shoes! Colors are stylish. I wear them every day.

I am at the gym 5 days a week. I run/walk 4-5 miles each of those days. I work 12 hour shifts at a hospital, and I am constantly on my feet. These shoes are very comfortable, and my feet never hurt! I live in these shoes!!! I am about to buy my second pair, just to have another color option.
