"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!"

"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?"

"These are my second pair of flyknit shoes. Unlike the Koke 9s, the racers are super light and breathable. The built quality is also good. It says there is a zoom unit in the forefoot, but I couldn't feel it now. The phylon material in the heel provides enough cushioning."

"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."
