"As a barefoot running fan these flyknit racers were a shock when I tried them on, they are great to run in and feel light as a feather while being very responsive. Everything from the fit to the colour ways appeal to me there is just one problem. I think being a heavy forefoot lander and not as efficient as I would like, the soles are not gonna be around for long. They show signs of wear after 2 weeks and that's not good considering the price. Apart from that they are the best shoes I have ever ran in. I'm just gonna save them for special races ;)"

"When I opened the box and picked these up I was amazed at how light they were and I began to think how something this light can actually provide stability; but they do.
They are a joy to wear and are comfortable straight out the box. Stick TRUE TO SIZE for the perfect fit, especially if you have medium to narrow feet.
The price may seem a lot, but they really are worth it and are perfect for running.

The state-of-the-Art!
Mai avuto scarpe così leggere, reattive, con un ottimo supporto del tallone. Difficile fare meglio.
Purtroppo il prezzo è troppo alto per acquistarne un altro paio. consiglio di prendere 1/2 punto in più alle consueta taglia.

"Light, quick and pretty, what else can you ask of a racing shoe? Sits well, although a lot more snugly than the same sized Flyknit Trainer(OOP). Did I mention they're quick?"

"I have 3 pairs of the Flyknit Racers and they are perfect for everyday use. I have ran over 200 miles on them and they could still be considered in great shape. It is hard to go from wearing this shoe to any other running shoe because they are so light! I own a majority of the other Flyknit shoes and these are by far the go to. I can't wait for the new Hex-Zoom multicolor release and to hopefully get a pair since I missed out before.."

"PSA: Be aware of your foot size/width before purchasing. I have a narrow foot with a high arch, went down 1/2 a size (Normally wear 11s, got 10.5s), and the sizing was perfect. If you have a normal-width foot, I'd recommend ordering your true size, or go a 1/2 size up if you have wide feet. I prefer not wearing socks when using these, whether it be to walk around in or do tempo runs in. The shoe is designed to fit like a sock, so the extra protection felt unnecessary. The Flywire and upper material have held up nicely, despite the deceptively lightweight and breathable upper. If you want to get the most these shoes have to offer, do not do every training run in them; reserve them for tempos, speedwork, or races. I've already ordered my second pair and look forward to their arrival. Highly satisfied with this shoe."

"Just got my 5th pair, and I love all of them. They are unique, beautifully made, and goes with just about anything. I see some people wearing it - training, running, or just getting stuff done on daily level. Nike releases new colors every once in a while, and I check the site at least couple of times a week to see and recommend to friends. If your size is available, get it, as they normally sell out quickly."

"I got these Nike's as a gift, and I LOVE them! I got them in the Pink/Crimson color, and the compliments do not stop pouring in! They're a pleasure to look at.
Aesthetics aside, this product is the absolute premium in running shoes. I find them to be supportive and light, but surprisingly sturdy. Also, they're comfortable without socks-- huge plus for me, because who has time to find a matching pair? ;P
I use these sneakers primarily for HIIT running. I'm also training for the ING Miami Half Marathon, and these are just a dream to wear. I don't even want to take them off.
As far as sizing goes, I'm a women's size 9 regular in Nike Free 4.0. I have these in a size 8, and they fit perfectly.
My only complaint is that they ran out of the purple ones in my size. C'mon Nike, get on that!! (And also, thanks for the wonderful sneaker :))"

"I usually wear Free 3.0 but decided to try something different as I'm training for a half. These are okay but bothered by the whole shoe is mesh so if it rains your shoes and socks get totally wet - happened on my second time wearing them. If it is cold, your feet will feel the outside air and be like blocks of ice. Running on gravel small rocks will get inside. If you run only on pavement in a hot dry climate I can see these would be okay just not a universal good running shoe."

"I run 15- 20 miles a week on road. These shoes are great. They have about 80 miles on them. The shoes feel a bit narrow, but seemed to break in after a few runs in. The zoom bag is in the forefoot and you can feel the responsiveness during toe push offs during accelerating. The upper was a little stiff and I tie them slightly loose so the flywire does not cut into my big toe knuckle. They are VERY DURABLE the waffle skin sole is holding up great.."

"I did not buy these shoes to be designer pointy toed shoes. They were purchased to be run in! That toe box does not say "I'm here to race", it says..."i was designed to look good and act like I race.""

So you bought a shoe that's supposed to be not stylish because you don't want to look stylish so you look like a runner? So if a shoe looks good, it can't also be a good running shoe? I think you're missing the point here... I dig the toe box (doesn't look "designer" to me), and I find them EXTREMELY comfortable to run in... and I'm definitely "here to race".

"Love these racers. Just copped them on a restock and boy I should have copped them a while ago. They are super lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. I have a wide foot, but I stayed with my true to size and they are great. I say TTS, unless you have a wider foot than me then go up .5 size"

sono comodissime, ci corro tantissimo, ci ho fatto pure la mia prima maratona.
