I love these shoes! I'm a nurse & on my feet a lot. These are the most comfortable shoes I've found in a long time! Amazingly, my feet don't hurt at the end of the day. Definitely recommend!

I mostly wear Nikes and generally love them. But I'm astounded by the great reviews these sneakers received here. I bought the white and papya and, although I love the styling, they are not comfortable by any stretch. The arch support is minimal, the back of the shoe keeps rubbing against my feet, but, worst of all, they are extremely stiff and feel heavy on my feet. I keep hoping that they'll loosen up and become miraculously more flexible, but no such luck. Moral of the story: I should have accepted that you really do get what you pay for.

This is more of a hot pink color and not red like it looked to me. I already have some with the same color so I am returning this as I wanted something red. Other than that the shoe looks nice. I didn't even try them on when I saw the color. But I love Nike shoes.

Wonderful shoe! Usually I wear a 8.5 wide (C) and I knew Nike runs more narrow for me so I ordered a 9W. Perfect, lots of cushioning at ball of foot.

This is a tough one. I always wear 11W. In the 11W, my toes feel they are rubbing up against the bulkhead more than usual, the 11.5W feels a little big... Gr.

I'd also recommend: new balance

These are very sharp looking shoes. They are perfect for summertime with shorts or jeans. They provide excellent arch support, very comfortable, and the perfect fit. I absolutely love Nikes and these are up to their great quality as usual. They were sold at a good price and the shipping was super fast. Zappos rocks!

I'd also recommend: ASICS
