Zappos' customer service is above and beyond the best that I have ever seen. I received the wrong size for the shoes I ordered. They replaced them with the correct size, refunded my money and told me to donate the wrong size shoes to someone that could use them. I took the shoes to a local high school that I work with and donated them to the school and had them choose a student that could use them. Great attitude and prompt service by Zappos. Thank you.

Like other new reviews pertaining to entry level Nikes, this shoe is very uncomfortable due to all the extra padding on the stitched tongue. I took my nephews advice and removed the laces and attempted to cut as much of the padding as possible. It did help, but it's still noticeable. It feels as if my toes are getting crushed. I grabbed an old pair of my better Nikes and the stitch between the tongue and shoe is seamless, barely noticeable. I would not recommend this pair with this subtle yet uncomfortable flaw.

My son loves this sneaker. He told me the other day that it looked so cool (12 years old). They are in his school colors and look great with jeans, shorts and sweats alike. Seems to be true to size. Very happy with our purchase and with our shopping experience with Zappos.

I have worn them for sixteen months now. Beside some problems from the long time use is the best Nike's shoe I have ever worn. Now I'm searching to buy a new color with the hope to wear them for a long time.

Great shoe. I use them for work and I am on my feet all day. I usually wear a 12 Mens but with this shoe I recommend getting a half size larger for a perfect fit.
