"Grande scarpa, una delle migliori di sempre.
Leggerissima e aderente come un calzino. Ottima ammortizzazione ma sulla distanza risulta dura, non adatta per la pioggia. Scegliete il vostro numero abituale di nike.
L'unico vero problema è la disponibilità, non si trovano nei negozi dalle mie parti e prima di poterne acquistare un paio qui su nike.com ho dovuto aspettare un bel po' e in un colore che normalmente non avrei scelto

"When I first got these sneakers, I was very imprssed by the feel of the flyknit. However, I ordered a size 11 because i am a 11 in all other Nike shoes but I need to wear two pairs of socks with these. They are very light and you will forget you're wearing sneakers"

"These shoes reminded me of the Nike Marathoners of some years ago. I run track, I am a 400 meter runner and I use these type of shoes to do many of my training sets in the track and on the street. The shoes fit like a globe and they are really light and versatile and minimal which I like. I would recommend them without hesitation. The outsole is not to soft nor to hard, I think they are perfect all in all"

"I purchased the Flyknit Racer for 1-2 faster runs (6:20 - 6:40 mi pace over 6 - 9 miles) I complete each week. I have put fifty miles on them now, and I am convinced that they are excellently designed shoes. They are extremely light, a bit narrow, provide an excellent "sock-like," foot-hugging feel (the flywire setup works excellently here), and have a base that is responsive but not too firm for longer runs. I am a forefoot striker and the foam/zoom unit combo in these shoes feels a bit different than any other shoe I have run in. They are firm but give just enough upon impact and provide a very minor "bounce" that I really enjoy. However, there isn't a lot under your foot. You can feel exactly what type of surface you are running on when wearing these shoes (in a good way).
I also run in the Zoom Elite 7s and the Pegasus 31s and the I find the firmness of the Flyknit Racers to be in between these two models (the Zoom Elite 7 being firmer and the Pegasus 31 being softer). The only aspect of this shoe that I was initially concerned about was stability. As I stated previously, the base of the Flyknit Racers is relatively narrow. When I first wore them taking tight turns and running through grass or rough terrain felt strange, but I adjusted very quickly and it has become a non-issue. (These are unquestionably road racers though, and I would never recommend them for anything but an occasional jaunt through grass or gravel.)
All this to say, that if you are a neutral, forefoot (or maybe midfoot) striker looking for an excellent shoe for fast days/races on pavement, I strongly recommend trying this shoe (if you are willing to stomach the price).
P.S. After 50 miles, my pair of Flyknit Racers shows very little wear. I anticipate getting 300 to 400 miles out of them before coughing up another arm, leg, and first born for pair 2."

I have put over 500 miles on my original pair and they are still in great shape, but you can never go wrong with multiple pairs..

"ich trage nun seit mehreren Jahren beim Sport und in meiner Freizeit Flyknits. Die Racer sind dabei meine allererste Wahl - Noch nie einen bequemeren, leichteren oder besser aussehenden Schuh besessen. Gucke fast jeden Tag ob es ein neues Modell in meiner Größe gibt und habe mittlerweile 3 Paar. Wünsche mir aber solo sehr eine höhere Verfügbarkeit und und ein paar Farbvarianten, die schon als Samples gesichtet wurden!
Macht weiter so, nur ein bisschen mehr :)"

"Loved these shoes right out of the box. They are the only shoe where I don't need to go up a half size to prevent my toes from touching while running because even when they do touch, there's no pain, no toenail loss, no blisters. They are super light, stretch nicely and feel like slippers yet offer enough protection for heavy mileage road use. The lacing is perfect without excess pressure on the top of my foot, which tends to be a problem in most other shoes except my Altra's. I have not yet worn them for my upcoming Boston marathon but have no doubt they will perform well."

"I have mainly been running in Nike's my entire life. I have worn various pairs like the Zoom Vomero's to Lunarlon sole shoes to The Free's. These shoes are very comfortable to run in and are very fast. Ran my fastest 10km run in them the very first wear and have consistently run similar times after. The lightest and fastest runner I have worn."

"I've purchased Pegasus and Lunar shoes from Nike in the past and they were great running shoes.. This time I tried the Flyknit.. Yeah it's a bit more money but it's worth it, shoe does not have the cushion previous shoes I purchased had but this material after a few runs feels comfortable and has a different kind of comfort in a good way.. I do treadmill and outdoor running about 4-6 miles at least 5 days of the week and so far I'm happy with this purchase."
