Absolutely beautiful shoes. I bought these for nursing school, we needed a primarily white shoe and I went with these, my first pair of Shox. I\'m impressed with how pretty these shoes are and how comfortable they are right out of the box, I wore them for 9 hours with no problems. Tons of complements. If you\'re trying to decide between Nike\'s Shox and Adidas Megabounce, I have a little guidance: Nike fits slimmer and more snug, so if you have a wide foot or want shoes with a little more wiggle room, the Megabounce might be the way to go. The Megabounce aren\'t as pretty and don\'t flatter the leg/foot like Shox do, but they\'re lighter weight on whole. Hope this helps someone :) PS: the black classic II SI are just as pretty as the white :)

I love the look of these shoes, but the rim of tongue is lined with wire I guess and it digs into the top of your foot. I wore them to work yesterday and couldn’t wait to take them off. When I got them off my ankles were swollen where the tongue of them had buried in my ankles. DEFINITELY DISSATISFIED!! I have to wear white shoes to work and I even got a size bigger and didn’t tie them tight and it still caused the top of my ankle to be swollen and very sore. I have skinny ankles. So not a good choice!!

Great Looking Shoe! I ordered this shoe in the white/silver/pink combo. It really is an awesome looking shoe and I've received plenty of compliments. I ordered half a size up so I could insert arch supports for flat feet. I also ordered these at the same time as the adidas megabounce and ended up keeping both. The adidas are more comfortable but the nike shox really look great are easier to keep clean.

Nice looking shoe - The shoes look great; I'm still just breaking them in, as the top part of the shoe is a little snug. I do not think a bigger shoe would help, as the shoe fits perfect, it's just a little tight across the top. It's leather so it should stretch, overall a good shoe.

Shoe is not as comfortable as it looks. Would have sent it back (pinched outer side of feet) but I had worn it to a mall, so of course it was then "mine". Also "clunky" looking, but of course they were for comfort (not) and not really looks.

Brands I'd also recommend: airmaxes are great and good looking (kind of) and the sister(?) locks are terrific

Ouch - This has got be one of the most uncomfortable pair of shoes I have ever had on my feet. The tongue wore a sore spot in my leg, about 2 inches up from where my foot starts. Something strange in the arch of the left shoe, felt like something gouging my foot. These are going back!!!

I bought Nike Shox Classic II SI For my wife who was having problems with the heels of her feet wearing her other sneakers while walking long distances or standing for hours. She was able to wear Nike Shox's out of the box without having to break them in and walk in a walkathon a day later and could not believe how well her feet felt that evening. She insists it's the best pair of sneakers she has worn in years.

One of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The springs in the heel are firm and effective. I use an orthotic and there is adequate room for them. I will definitely buy them again.

I've had these around 3 months so it's not that they're not broken in, just very uncomfortable. These are my 3rd pair of Shox, feels like there's no cushion. I loved the other two pair I got a few years back...a black/pink pair and blue/pink pair. They look very stylish though. They have almost a fish scale look to the leather, kind of neat.

Loved these when they arrived but due to a wide foot and high instep, was unable to keep. Also, felt something along the edge of the tongue of the shoe digging into the top of my foot.

The comfort of the shoes was fine, they fit nice and snug, and even will stay on while running (barely) without any laces tied. I thought they looked awesome. But my issue was with quality. Do not get me wrong, they are pretty well built, just not to what I know as Nike standards. I have owned several pairs of Nike Shox over the past five years and have loved them, and worn them every day since I first bought a pair. But this time the shoelaces broke very quickly, and they were not even the right length in the first place, they would barely tie together, I had to use Paracord shoelaces for a while. I acknowledge the fact that I beat the crap out of them, I took them on many snow hikes and would bring them camping in the back country for days. Unfortunately, I have owned Nike Shox, and they have performed much better. I quickly saw the back shock come off, and I had to glue and tape it on for a 23 mile snow backpacking summit trip. I also noticed, that on snow I had to be super careful, especially when walking on sloped trails. I fell and snapped my pole in half, because my Nikes slipped out from under me. On top of this I am the captain of my cross country team and I have used this for training and running races, they performed well, but I had my shoelaces come undone halfway through and had to run with my shoe dangling from my foot, it was not fun to jump the creek. But I could definitely accelerate because they were decently light and had some grip. I also took these on a mini triathlon, and had them perform well, unfortunately they were kind of hard to fit on after the swimming event and start biking. I love the shoes, just pay attention to detail, and use craftsmanship when constructing these amazing tools. They cost a lot of money, so spend money on quality parts, and less than profit, my life depends on these things. Use quality shoelaces (Paracord shoelaces) use quality stitches, good rubber, and do not just glue parts together.

The black/fuscia colorway of these shoes is hideous. They look like car tires. I can't even say how comfortable they are, because I couldn't bring myself to try them on.

I am on my feet all day, and have lived, happily and comfortable, in Nikes for years. These shoes were stiff, not very comfortable, very loud and squeaky. Worst of all, the tongues are also stiff and too long, extending beyond where the laces tie. They wore dents in my legs, and made them rough, red and raw. Ouch.
