I wear these shoes to officiate basketball. I buy a new pair every year. Year one, I wear them on the court. Year 2, they rotate to my casual shoes. Year 3, they become my yard mowing shoes. Comfort and performance-wise, they are the best shoes I've found in this price range. As someone else pointed out, however, they are very loud. On the court it doesn't matter. But when I'm strolling through Target with cart full of groceries, I'm not exaggerating when I say that heads do actually turn and look. That's how loud they are. If you can live with that, this is a great shoe.

I love the look and they are very comfortable but the noise is terrible. I've never owned a pair of shoes that made a loud crunching, squeaking noise with every step you take like these do. Zappos is great and I've always worn Nike but I won't buy another pair of Monarchs.

The most comfortable shoe I've ever worn, but they squeak and fart with every step on every surface except carpet. People can hear you coming down the hall 100 yards away.

I've own many Nike shoes in the past and these are extremely comfortable. I wanted a pair of comfortable black shoes for work which requires me to stand and move. These met my expectations with a great sales price from Zappos too.

Zappos treated me well again. I was getting regular ground shipping and received an email saying this was being sent next day air. Boy was I happy! The shoes now that's A different story. They ended up being best pair of shoes Ive ever had in ever way. I could find no faults at all. I'm very pleased. I'll never buy shoes anywhere else, unless its a pair of sandals in Hawaii or somewhere like that. Thank you Zappos you're the best!.

It is true what people have said; these develop a squeak that is almost embarrassing. Many people have commented on my squeaky shoes. Zappos return policy is useless as well, because the squeak doesn't start until the 3rd or 4th day of wearing the shoes. By then, they are not in brand new condition as you have worn them outside and to work for a week almost. Overall though, if the squeakiness wasn't there, the shoe would be perfect. If you don't mind squeaky shoes, these are for you.

I have been wearing Air Monarchs for jogging and casual use for years. Local outlets never seemed to have my model, or my size, or my color so one phone call and my old friends were at my door in 2 days at a good price.

This is my husband's second pair, and while they are very comfortable after a week they squeak so bad that you can hardly stand it. His first pair squeaked too, we thought it was just a fluke. Guess not.

I bought these due to the wider width availability, I like the shoes but the squeaking is very annoying, and I have contacted Nike about this. Hopefully they will stand behind their product!

I have worn this model shoe for 10 years and have gone through many pairs. The last pair I bought were made in Vietnam and were comfortable from beginning to end. The one's I just purchased were made in China. The shoes were noticeably stiffer and needed to be broken-in. This is the first time it happened. Once broken in, they squeak when I walk. This does not seem to be the same quality shoe I have purchased in the past.

Liked these sneakers a lot...until they started to squeak. It's like the air pocket has deflated and two layers of rubber inside it are rubbing together, making for an off-putting squeak. So beware to squeak!

I like Nikes, but some are really expensive. Not these, I just bought these about a week ago in white/silver. All my shoes get dirty fast including these and I don't see the point of buying expensive Nikes.

I purchased these for my 16 yr old son-he likes to wear Nike tennis shoes to school-they always fit his foot the best (med/wide width foot) and these proved true again! Comfortable from day 1. There wasn't a store nearby who had these shoes, so we decided to order from Zappos, they were here the next day which was fantastic-we'll definitely do it again.

My son and I needed a comfortable all black shoe to wear with our uniforms while on a Washington D.C. tour with our Boy Scout troop. We found the Air Monarch IV at a local Dick's as well as at Bass Pro but only in white in the wide size we both needed. Associates at both those stores told us after they checked online that the shoe we needed was not available in a wide width in black in any size. Imagine my surprise when I found just what I needed at Zappos.com. The Zappos associate was extremely helpful checking if the item was in stock. My order arrived the next day with free shipping. As a first time Zappos shopper I am very pleased with the great customer service reasonable prices and fast delivery. As for the Nike Air Monarch IV shoe itself it is very comfortable and gives good support. After hours of walking and standing during our trip I didn't rush back to camp to change shoes, something I can't say about some other footwear I've had.
