"This is my second flyknit line sneakers i had purchased and initially I was very pleased with this purchase. It is light and comfortable but for whatever reasons, i noticed a small tear on the front section of my left shoe few days ago. I had only used it for the treadmill running and i am extremely sad that my flyknit racer was damaged only after four months of owernership."

"these shoes are phenominal, i bought my first pair about 6 months ago... and will purchase two more this time around. My original pair fit a little loose sometimes so i put them in the washer and dryer to tighten them up because the flywire around the ankle losens after a while. i now use them as my lifting shoes. i run roughley a 5:15 mile and perform multiple sprints in them and they manuver well. over +450 miles recorded on them. great buy.."

"Danke an Nike für so einen tollen Laufschuh. Sehr leicht, bequem und schöne Optik. Vorne ein wenig schmal geschnitten. Bei Größe 45 hab ich den mit 47 erworben. Passt sehr gut. Bei Regen oder nassem Untergrund aber eher ungeeignet. Rutscht ein wenig wenn die Straße Nass ist. Durch das Gewebe welch Großporig ist ist man sehr schnell Nass im Schuh. Bei trockenem Wetter aber wofür er eigentlich ist geb ich ihn nicht mehr her.Sehr gutes Feeling wenn man schnell läuft.Kann ihn mit gutem Gewissen weiterempfehlen."

"These are without question the best pair of Nikes that I have owned. Although previous experience with Pegasus, Vomero and Free were all very positive, my Flyknit Racers fit like socks right out of the box! They're light as wind, offer excellent support and fit true to size (Size 8, no feet, or stride issues). Nice job Nike designers and engineers. You've built in so much in such a minimalist shoe - a great achievement!"

"I bought my racers about a year ago. They are about as light and responsive of a shoe as there is in the market.
Obviously the flyknit material makes the uppers very breathable and form fitting to your foot. Although tying the laces even slightly too snug will irritate the tops of your feet.... So getting the laces just right is one of the most important things with these shoes.
I have been pleasantly surprised by the durability. I was mainly concerned with the uppers but they have proven to last.
I own way more shoes than a man should but these have been my go to shoes even for every day wear. They literally have become more comfortable the longer I have had them. If the traction wasn't wearing off the bottoms from so much use I would just keep using them."

"I have 3 pairs of the Flyknit Racers and I choose them over any other shoe for multiple reasons. They are very comfortable, especially after multiple wears. They are extremely durable with over 400 miles tracked from running 3-13 miles at a time in all conditions, walking to work and just daily activies . Even though your feet can get wet in the rain easily, it is not something I would complain about unless it is before work. Plus, they still are in presentable shape. I would love to see the Multi-color make a comeback so I can actually get a pair this time.
Now only if NIKEiD was an option in these. Talk about a Game Changer."

"This is my second flyknit, my first one are the lunar one+ and this shoe is much more lightweight and much more responsive than the lunar, and they also have better looks than the lunar, but for comfortability this shoe is just much less comfortable, it runs narrow and it just hurts my foot when trying them for the first runs, but as it breaks down it become much more comfortable and as the shoes were directed for racing I don't have any negative complaints, recommended for under half-marathon races"

"This shoe is by far the best shoe I have ever owned. It is extremely light, and it has great support. I just love the cushioning, it has such a bouncy feel. Also, the traction is amazing. I only have two minor complaints. One, the laces come untied easily, so you should probably double or triple not them. Two, I got the white/volt/black color way, and the black part on the midsole chips a little bit after about a month in a half, but you won't notice it. (Thats the only reason I didn't give it the best durability rating.) Overall, this is an amazing shoe with everything anybody would want in a high quality running shoe. And it receives nothing but compliments."

"I usually run in the Flyknit trainers and love them so thought I would try the Flyknit racers. I find them very uncomfortable; my feet move around a lot in the shoes, even when done up tight, and my heels tend to roll in when running which isn't very comfortable."

"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.

"Let me start by saying I love Nike's products, it's all I wear. I was very disappointed in this shoe. This is by far the most uncomfortable Nike shoe I have worn. My sole feels like it has bumps in it. I hoped I could break them in but that was not the case. The shoe is very narrow and I never had a problem with Nike's width. The shoe is so uncomfortable I find I'm losing 30 seconds on my mile cause my feet hurt so bad. I would recommend another shoe."

"This is my favorite shoe of all time. I've owned a lot of Nike's but realized that this one is special. I'm a lightweight runner who trains for marathons throughout the year. It fits me perfectly. It's extremely lightweight and comfortable. I'm a distance runner that doesn't require too much cushioning. I love how Nike doesn't try to change the design of this shoe. Keep an extra pair of nikes with you if it's raining outside. The breathability of this shoe is so great, you won't want to get them wet. Enjoy."

"I own four pair of these shoes. They cost more than I ever thought I would spend on running shoes, especially since I am not a runner. They are the lightest most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. My first pair were bought quite some time ago and still look brand new. I was afraid since I am a pretty big guy that they would not hold up, but that has not been the case. I wish Nike would add these to the ID program. I am not terribly crazy about some of the color combos available and would like to get a few more pairs."

"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?"
