I'm a long time fan of the Monarch III but after 4 years needed the same fit and comfort with a different style, which is exactly what the Monarch IV provided. I have flat feet that are slightly wide and very few shoes can fit without irritation the way that Monarch can. The new look is subtle but distinctive from the previous version.

I love the look and they are very comfortable but the noise is terrible. I've never owned a pair of shoes that made a loud crunching, squeaking noise with every step you take like these do. Zappos is great and I've always worn Nike but I won't buy another pair of Monarchs.

My favorite shoes. 16th pair I've purchased. I buy a new pair every year, keep a working pair and donate the rest. I'm always trying on other shoes but nothing feels as good as these in 10 wide.

I had put in a review for this sneaker, bought back in March 2013, and I wanted to update it but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that, so this is a second review with some tips for those suffering the common squeaking issue. There are some videos on youtube that disassemble these sneakers to show you where the problem areas are. Basically, there's a couple of factors. One is that the glue on the bottom of the air pillow (which goes from the heel up to around the ball of the foot) deteriorates and causes it to rub against the rubber bottom it's attached to. I think this one may be a little less common, though. The issue I had, and I suspect this one is more common, is there is glue or something on TOP of the air pillow that deteriorates due to sweat and wear, and once that's gone it causes the air pillow to rub against the canvas insole underneath the foam comfort insole. Fortunately, I was able to remedy mine. Here's how: First, I carefully removed the foam comfort insole. The glue holding it in place was weakened through wear, so it removed easily without tearing any foam pieces off. After that, I found that the canvas that was underneath had begun to wear away in spots (heel, ball of foot). I was able to use these weakened areas to get my finger in and either tear or cut a line down the length of the canvas. Basically, I separated the canvas from the air pillow, then put the canvas back in place. Then I put the foam comfort insole back in and walked around to see if that helped. If it didn't, I took it apart again to fiddle with it some more. I imagine if you wanted to, you could add more glue (shoe goo?) or some other material as a buffer between the air pillow and the canvas and see if that helps. I didn't need to, and I wanted to keep this exploratory shoe surgery to a minimum. The ONLY reasons I went to this trouble was because I really like how they look (I have the red/white/black) and they are very comfortable. If these two factors weren't satisfactory, then I would have returned them long ago. These shoes do get a lot of complaints about this flaw, though, and a quality product really shouldn't suffer this issue so broadly. But for those of you who have them or don't mind having to compensate their low cost with a little homemade fixing, they're worth considering. If you want something that is going to have absolutely no issues from the time you first open the box to the time they fall apart off your feet, and you can get that for $60-90, you may as well pass on the Monarch IV. Maybe we'll get lucky and if Nike makes a Monarch V they will eliminate this noisy materials flaw.

These shoes are horrible. The size is about .5 too small and they are just uncomfortable as can be. Set the money you were going to spend on fire and at least get some heat out of it.

It's difficult to find shoes larger than men's size 13 in most stores. Since we found Zappos, our problem is solved. This shoe fits great. It's also nice to be able to have a greater selection of styles to choose from. Customer service at Zappos went above and beyond to help us. Thanks.
