"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.

"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 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 le scarpe più reattive che abbia mai provato, quando le ho comperate pensavo sarebbero state scomodo, rigide, per nulla ammortizzate, e invece è stata una sorpresa.
sono comodissime, ci corro tantissimo, ci ho fatto pure la mia prima maratona.

How is the stability on these while running? I run the beach sometimes and don't want to pronate while running are they stable?

"i do not run. i do not play sports. i do not work out. i pretty much don't do anything now-a-days except buy flyknits. i own 5 pairs (lunars trainers and now racers) of flyknits for a reason. they are the best period. and the racers are the best of the flyknits but the racers run big. I'm normally 9.5-10. i returned a 9.5 for a 9 and the 9s fit PERFECT. just wish nike would do a nikeid racer. or at least restock some of the old colors. i can't stand the color blue but i purchased the blue and black ones because pink and purple are for ladies and i NEED racers on my feet. nike... you need to do a dark red and black ASAP. or a gray/maroon would be awesome. or brown? yup i would buy brown. orange. thank you. oh and i don't understand how the best shoe on nike.com is the hardest one to get? the supply is not meeting my demand. flyknit = top shelf ALL DAY!"

"pictures don't do these justice! amazing colorway. I have these style of shoe in 3 colorways, hoping to get many more! Hopefully this shoe is here to stay.... The shilohette to this shoe is far superior to any other flyknit, or Nike running shoe in my opinion. Fitment is a little narrow but opens up at the toe box and heel grasps your heel to make a very comfortable shoe. Extremely light and breathable."

"Wearing these FlyKnits is like walking over cotton. I'm so happy with my purchase. Bought these in the blue color and I'm already looking to purchase every color available in my size. I'm a Financial Advisor in Manhattan and I tend to walk to work from W 42 St to W 31 St in Midtown Manhattan. Was so tired of walking the 15 minute walk in dress shoes so I bought these to give my feet a break. I get compliments wearing these to work in the mornings with a suit! Which is a double plus. I used them for my evenings runs around Central Park and they definitely do the job! Note to Self: buy half a size bigger. I'm a 9 but for that perfect fit, had to re order them in a 9.5. Other than that they are by far a running/walking athletic gem."
