"I primarily use these shoes for urban orienteering races. As a result, I wear them for c. 15 km per race, mainly on road but also with occasional sections of parkland. I have no complaints about the performance of the shoe on any of these surfaces, although they are certainly best suited to road use. They are comfortable over this distance and are very breathable due to the flyknit upper, good for sweat but also rain/puddles/etc.. Very responsive due to light weight and minimal cushioning (on the forefoot, at least). I have described fit as "neutral", but would actually say in the heel/mid-foot the shoe is narrow and in the forefoot it is a bit wide. This makes sense what with the racer being a race shoe (forefoot strike), but means that I would never wear them casually as they feel odd/imbalanced to just walk in. My only complaint of the shoe is that--despite being a race shoe--it does not have dual eyelets at the top of the tongue as most running shoes do. These (dual eyelets) allow for a more secure fit/better lockdown around the heel, and although I have been able to somewhat mimic this feature by lacing my shoes in a particular way (see photo), it would be good if Nike would include this feature in the next generation of flyknit racers."

"Luckily managed to grab a pair of these in Nike Town in London. The fit is snug which, if you're like me, you will appreciate as your foot feels very locked down. I went true to size but if you like a spacier fit go half a size up.
I wouldn't recommend for the wide-footed. I have quite wide feet and still find them comfortable as an everyday trainer and a gym shoe however I wouldn't recommend these for a wide-footed runner, the Nike Flyknit Free NSW is a better alternative to these.
They look just about the coolest running shoes on the market and are well-worth the money!"

"I love the shoes, but I initially bought them in my normal size, but they seem to be just a bit too small, so I recommend going up half a size or maybe even a whole size. I got a 37.5 but needed a 38 :)
Otherwise love them!

"I've now had 3 different pairs/colours of these and all 3 pairs have developed a rip in the toe section, first 2 pairs were sent back to Nike and I got a new pair but they done the same after a few weeks you could see it starting to develop already.
I took the shoes to an independent running shop and they were the correct size.
I am currently wearing the blue version with the red tick as I write this and I've had to put some blue tape on the inside of the shoe where yet the same issue has manifested itself."
Response from NikeBy Nike.comCS09-Jun-2015
We are very sorry to hear that Nike Flyknit Racer have not met your expectations and that you have had to return so many pairs.

We want you to be able to wear the shoe in comfort without concerns of the upper ripping. Our Running Expert team want to investigate this further to determine the cause. Expect to hear from them shortly.

"The flyknit racers are my favourite nike shoes because of their comfort, lightness and aesthetics. The Bright Crimson/Volt/Black is my second pair after I bought the black and white ones last year. I attached a photo of what the shoe colour actually looks like because it's more vivid than what they show online."

"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?"

"bought these as a treat for an up coming marathon. been running in them for the last week. They are light. The are comfortable. There is support at the heel, and a decent amount of cushion at the forefoot. Expensive, but so far, money well spent. I think these will be my new raceday shoe."
