I really like the minimalist style and feather weight of this sneaker. However, I am always a size 6 (always), so imagine my surprise when this arrived and was at least a half size too big, maybe even a full size. I can completely bend the toe bed in half over the top of my foot. Since these are quite snug (but definitely have the stretch factor) I'm wondering if they'll be too tight if I order 1/2 size down. I def have average width feet - not wide at all. I've never owned a pair of running sneakers smaller than a 6 so I'm going to into the store to try them on before exchanging. I haven't run in them yet. If the 1/2 size makes all the difference and they're still comfortable when running, I hope to change my rating to a 4 or 5 star. They may need to just be broken in a bit and stretched. I typically run 3-5 miles a few days a week.
Great neutral light weight running shoe
If you are looking for a lightweight flexible running shoe with virtually no extra bells and whistles, this is a great shoe. Also, if you are looking for a wider toe box, this shoe fits the bill.
I run anywhere from 30-60 miles a week depending on what I am training for and have worn this shoe in all races from 1 mile to marathons. Have an issue with a Morton's Neuroma from wearing narrow toe box shoes, and no problems with this shoe. Have owned about 6 pairs of this shoe.
The only real cons are that they don't last as long as built up heavier cushioned (less flexible) shoes and they are minimal with the cushioning. But, if you are a lightweight or efficient runner, this shoe is spot on.
I have run in the Nike Lunar Racer and the Flyknit 1. I found this shoe to be a nice addition to my rotation. It seems a little narrow across the mid foot but, has some stretch. Not sure if a half size bigger is necessary or not. This shoe doesn't have a ton of cushion. However, definitely helps to strengthen your legs by making them do the work. It also helps you watch your form by feeling where your feet land. I have only been running lower miles with this shoe to start but, feel great benefits. I am very happy with this shoe.
Not up to standard fit
I was surprised how wide the toe area is for this shoe. I pulled it out of the box and the toe area looked like a Crocs clog...huge, breathable and unattractive. I bought these to wear with jeans for air travel and running on trips away from home, but they aren't my style. Additionally, as a loyal size 7 Nike shoe buyer (2 pairs a year for 5 years), overall the shoes seemed big with at least a 5/8" excess from my big toe to edge. The knit fabric and colors were nice, I really wish these had worked out. Also, I am seriously bummed out that my VIP benefits don't include free returns - $10 lost for shipping for shoes I can't wear :(
Unparalleled Style & Comfort
I bought the sneaker initially for the color which I got in the orange/grey combo. When I tried on the sneaker, I fell in love with the comfort level. Although I don't have wide feet, sometimes I feel Nike toe boxes run a bit narrow. This has a wide toe box which initially I wasn't sure about but honestly it looks great and it feels even better. It is almost like your are not wearing anything and it flexes with your foot literally yet has a good amount of cushion. I use it for weight training and HIIT type classes.
I would buy this product again.
I am training for a marathon in January and have been worried about finding shoes that won't cause blisters as I have bunions . These are the first shoes that I have bought that not only have a wide forefoot but no seam lines to rub or hard sole edges to abrade that area. I would recommend these to anyone who suffers with bunions. I have yet to see if they will
Hold up on longer distances but I'm feeling confident right now.
Hugs well without support
I have a thin narrow foot with normal to low arch. I don't usually notice my feet when running (30-40 miles per week) but these were uncomfortable and Nike usually fits me well. This is a snug, comfortable shoe except when NOT running though, very stylish and colorful.This is the only pair that had to return because my arch or some part of my foot was actually uncomfortable throughout the run. Had to return after the very first run.

Great work out shoe
Gave these as a gift to my daughter, the gym rat and athlete. She loves them. They have definitely replaced all other footwear for the gym and I am even seeing them as she goes out with friends for the evening. When asked what her favorite gift was - the sneakers.
Thanks to the customer service team who worked quickly and seamlessly to correct a wrong shipment and manage to get the correct shoe here in time for Christmas morning.

Go Up One Full Size!
Had to exchange original purchase of 1/2 size up to a full size up; and those are finally comfortable, although I still have to wear thin socks. In fact I have two pair, both supposedly the same size, but they don't fit the same! I wear thin socks with the multi colored and super thin socks with the black and they both seem okay. Buying Nike online is a definite problem.

AWESOME FLEXIBLE COMFORTABLE STABLE
These shoes are used for running, hiking trails and cross fit.
They feel like socks on your feet, comfortable and conform to each part of your foot. They are flexible and give support where needed. The lift in the toes gives you a bounce in your stride and helps with all of the stress from running on your knees and ankles! love love love!

I LOVE these shoes! This is my second pair. They fit like a glove, no pressure points, no rubbing, no slipping. I even forgot my orthotics one day and ran in them with no insoles for 10 miles with no problem. They have an excellent balance of cushion and flexibility.

Great Fabric Upper
The flyknit upper is really nice, but I may exchange for half a size larger; they are very narrow, even with the thinnest socks. Seems okay for running, but I also do a lot of walking, and my feet sometimes get numb. I already sized up a half size.

Love these for casual wear
These shoes are so comfortable for casual, light workouts. I need more arch support for my running shoes now that I'm older with injuries, however my daughter loves to run in them. The color selections are fantastic.
These are great shoes and look great with jeans. They are good minimalist shoes for short distance runs or gym. They do run small. I normally but running shoes a 1/2 size up and would go a full size up and in these.
Love these shoes!
These shoes hug your feet and it feels like you're not wearing shoes they are so light weight. Best used for speed work & short distances, although I have run up to 10 miles in them, there is not a lot of cushion or support.
I love using these at the gym to weight train. The toe box takes a day of wearing them to get used to. The only issue I have is they slip on hardwood floors. But they are great besides that.

Great support for running-hugs
Hugs my foot so that there is no rocking of my feet due to excess space inside a shoe. I do not wear for everyday. I would recommend it for during a workout and then take them off.

I would not buy these again.
Nice shoe. Nice materiaI. Nice color-I got the crimson & raspberry. However, the toe box area is NOT big enough! Yes, it is plenty wide enough. But it is flat! It hurt across the base of my big toe, on top, so bad I cannot wear them. Regretfully, I am returning them.
Love the shoes!
I really like how light and comfortable those shoes are, I also like the way they hug the foot.
Most comfortable shoes ever. Very light, also
I love these shoes. I use them for T-Tapp and walking. I can no longer run due to chronic Achilles tendonitis. I was nervous about a shoe with a low heel but these are fantastic.
Favorite shoes ever
Feels like you are running barefoot! Love them!
