The Flyknit Racer is by far my favorite shoe out of the Flyknit series. Keep in mind I wear these shoes on casual occassions rather than for sports/running.
I like how the shoe has a sleek, slim profile. It's extremely lightweight and it's very breathable. Feels like you're walking on clouds!
Son ran LA Marathon with these shoes
Son used for a long training run with low socks. Loved the lightweight but after 1st run, got a blister on one heel. Used the higher toesie socks on marathon day and had a fantastic fast race! And no blisters!
An instant classic.
An absolutely beautiful show. I own about 25 pairs of flyknits in all models - lunar 1, chukka, racer, trainer. The racers look best on feet IMO.
Biggest disappointment, however, is RR still isn't shipping shoes double-boxed.

Great looking sneaker
At the gym (weights) and Stair climbing. I love the colors and style. Lace material could be better. You must tie them twice in order to stay put. And material color varies per shoe.
Great for all ages - if you want to go fast!
The Flyknit Racer is simply amazing. The reviews said that it wants to go fast - well, it wants to go fast - but so do I when I put them on. I am ancient - but this shoe simply makes intervals natural. The 10 mm drop puts you in such a great position. I recommend for any older runner (and I am 70) that wants the impetus to do some real speed work - relative as that might be. Light, comfortable, supporting - and fast.
Light shoe but too narrow
The shoes are extremely light which is great! But they were extremely narrow. When I put them on, my first thought was "I'm definitely going to roll my ankle in these". I don't normally wear wide shoes but these were just to narrow. I'm also a fan of the Nike free sole that allows the sole of the shoe to be incredibly flexible. The sole of this shoe was very stiff.
Its supposed to be small
The thing about flyknits is, it has to be actually small on you but not that small. For example I tried my brothers, since we are the same size,and it felt small but i still had space for my toes.

My favorite pair of running shoes
These shoes are strictly for use on my treadmill, they are absolutely comfortably light. The only downside is the toe area are a bit narrow and wore out much faster than I expected. (see photos) I will order my next pair one size larger. That should remedy the problem.
Great shoe, just not for me
I don't wear a wide shoe but I feel like I need it for this shoe. The heel is so narrow that it felt like it was forcing my foot off to the inside of the sole. The material is great and felt extremely comfortable on my feet until I ran in them. I will be returning these but if you have smaller feet, these will probably work great for you.
Love these shoes!!! I am 52 year old runner and have tried all kind a of shoes. These are my favorite shoes I have ever ran in for short distances like 5k or 10k. They are so light it feels like you are wearing no shoes. I have ran my two fastest 5k races in these shoes.
Not my first pair. My wife and I love Flyknit Racers. Comfy and stylish and very breathable. Odd thing is that they're not very comfy when just standing in them for too long so more motivation to keep moving
This product is great and it came at an ever better price!
The pair of shoes feels really comfortable but for size wise might be a little small although I bought half a size bigger.
I love this shoe.
I want to buy another pair. This is one of the most comfortable shoes I ever wore. They are super light and I feel like I can do anything when I wear them.
Nice running/casual shoe.
Nice running and casual shoe. The only gripe I have is that the upper on the right shoe is not that comfortable. Maybe due to a manufacturing variability.
Great shoes! Shoe box all beat up from shipping.
Love the shoes! But the box was all beat up from shipping. I would prefer a box for shipping, instead of just putting the shoe/box in a taped plastic bag.
Rough packaging and bigger than other Nikes
Came on time and in the box.. Barely. The show box was destroyed from the shipping process and they run a little bigger than most size 11 shoes from Nike
Shoes are amazing!
The Nike Flyknit series is one of my favorites.
Light and Fast
Light and fast, very breathable. But a little more support on the inside heal would be nice.
Light weight, and durable.
I already have 2...would buy more definitely
Flyknit racers are great for daily use. Comfortable and soft.
My new favorite
Love this shoe. Great for track workouts and races.
