Comments about Womens Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit 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.

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.

        Comments about Womens Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Running Shoe:

        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 :(

          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.

            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!

              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.

                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.

                    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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.

                        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.
