After trying several NB athletic shoes locally and with Zappos I stumbled on this Nike Flex 2013 Run shoe in the black/pink locally. You can't imagine the number of shoes I have tried with 3/4 orthotics, having bunions, neuromas and bent toes. This shoe felt right the moment I put it on, works for my narrow heels yet lets my toes spread. It isn't overly padded at the heel like so many NB shoes. It is light weight, cushy and roomy in the toes and I am experiencing no pain with my Theta Orthotics and this shoe. It is also quite cute!! It has some arch support but I require more. The shoe liner works great over the orthotic; it has the flange at the arch area to fully cover the orthotic. Unless you have orthotics that are full length to replace the liner this is an important consideration. I was so happy to find these shoes and now I am getting ready to buy other colors. FINALLY I am able to keep a pair of shoes from Zappos. THANK YOU Zappos!

I am so disappointed. The reviews looked good for these shoes. I have high arches and tend to under-pronate, so I went ahead and got them. Wrong choice. After wearing them for a month, I have so much pain in my arches after running that I am having to take recovery days more often. I am stuck with them now since I wore them and you can only return shoes unworn. I guess I just have to deal with the pain or stop running. Thanks a lot, Nike. I should have switched brands and gone with Mizunos or Asics. These shoes also feel bigger than they should be. They feel so loose on my heel and I don't have narrow feet. AND the threads are coming loose. I only run on the treadmill so it isn't like I am rough on them or anything. Don't buy these if you have high arches. Just don't.

For someone with plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, these shoes have saved the day. So comfortable with just the right support. Highly recommend them.

I love the shoes but have a big problem. I bought these to replace my Nike Free Run 2, but the first time I went out for a walk on paved roads, a stick punctured the bottom of the shoe right through! They are not worth the money.

I'd also recommend: nike, merril

I bought a pair of Nike Flex's earlier this year (May or June?) and they are just about to the point where I am thinking about replacing them. I have logged roughly 10 miles a week, mostly outside. So these shoes have seen 300-ish miles if you include cross-training. I'm expecting a new pair of Flex's under the Christmas tree. :) Curious to see how much the shoe has broken down in comparison to the new ones, know if I can keep the current ones in rotation. What I like about these shoes: -Wide-toe box with a heel narrow enough to not feel like it's slipping (hard to find!) -Low-heel helps my mid-strike (if I could show you a picture of the bottom of the shoe--- all the wear is right across the ball of my foot) but somehow all those flex grooves or something make me feel like I'm running on air -There is this little bubble of cushion under the laces, and it keeps the pressure off the top of my foot--- awesome, because I have an issue with foot numbness with lots of other brands -My foot is fairly neutral, and I think when I first bought these I described them to my husband as feeling like a hug for my feet. Just enough support in all the right places, without feeling constricted or floppy. The style of mine right now are black and white, but I like all the color combination too! What these shoes aren't: Trail shoes: I would definitely stick to smooth surfaces in these-- someone else mentioned pebbles, and the same happens with me. I found an acorn stuck in the groove at the gym when I was stretching! And I could totally see how a piece of wood could puncture these.
