Nike offers a vast array of products for an active sports lifestyle. Because every athlete wants to be better, Nike is able to outfit an athlete from the top down with high performance shoes, clothing, socks, bags, watches and eyewear. Since today’s sports are about creating great athletes and transforming them into great players, Nike is there every step of the way to enhance each training experience, making each workout count.
Top quality and performance are key to unlocking your inner potential.

If swimming is more your game, Nike Swimwear has got you covered. From training to team swimwear, Nike remains at the forefront of new and innovative technologies. Nike Swim is constantly striving to develop new fabrics for more comfortable and effective swimwear. Since harsh, chlorinated water is hard on swimsuits, Nike has created an answer with Nike NX fabric. This chlorine-resistant, colorfast nylon fabric can withstand long hours of training and competition while retaining its shape throughout the life of the garment. Excellent shape retention and soft, lightweight comfort can be found with Nike Swimwear that utilizes Nike EVR-X poly fabric. This unique fabric blends in the revolutionary chlorine-proof Dow XLA™ fiber with a comfortable stretch for maximum performance and comfort.
Nike continues to seek new and innovative ways to develop superior athletic products, and creative methods to communicate directly with Nike consumers. Nike Free, Nike+ and Nike Sphere are just three examples of this approach. Nike has always been at the front of technical integration, whether it is from Bill Bowerman’s wife’s waffle iron outsole, the revolutionary Nike Pegasus, to Nike Air technology; Nike is always pushing the envelope on creativity. When it comes to creativity and functionality, Nike’s motto is “Just do it.”

Nike Downshifter 5
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 agree with the other reviewer. There's a bizarre excess of padding near the base of the tongue that pushes down on where your toes meet your foot. I've never seen this in any other shoe, and it's very uncomfortable. At first I thought I had forgotten to take all the paper out. I love the way these look, but I have to return them. It felt weird to even walk around in them.

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.
