Shoes are well ventilated, comfortable and have good grip and cushion. I use them for elliptical machine but still love them.

Not fond of these sneakers. The fit was more or less okay, but the back of the sneaker, above the heel? The material here is not stiff enough. As a result, when you put the shoe on, the back folders over and you need to dig it out. Additionally, the laces are far, far too short. Not quite worth returning it, but I definitely could not recommend.

They're alright; fit better than another pair of nikes but nowhere near as comfortable. I can only wear them for ninety minutes before they become uncomfortable.

Too many shoes claim to have good arch support but actually have next to none. These are different. Extremely comfortable to begin with, and they fit my high-arch, unusual-width feet (which get weirder as time goes on). After the Reebok Ex-o-Fit went south (it was perfect for many years but it's turned to crap now), I became hopelessly frustrated -- in the most expensive way -- by the search for shoes I could wear without pain. Zappos 'infinite returns' policy saved me from what would've been a an effort; it took 6 attempts, but I finally found that the Nike Darts fit the bill. If you need lots of horizontal room but a decent arch, these are it.

Having a wide foot, I've realized the 4E means different things to different manufacturers. I usually had to spend more to find a shoe I liked. Then I saw Nike came out with their 'Widths' line. Tried these on and bought them! It just goes to show you that you don't have to spend a ton of money on a good pair of work-out shoes! Will keep re-buying til they stop making them (but please don't).

These feel pretty good but I do have one complaint: the sides of each shoe seem to press in at a point (near the arch and opposite the arch) where it feels like a mild "poke." If I wear thick enough socks, I can't feel it, but I'd prefer to wear my thin socks.

Bought in a 10.5 4E black & white and they fit the hubby great and they look really good! He wears them all the time. I thought they looked so good myself I went to see what they had for ladies but no black. Husband likes these a bunch- another great buy!

There's nothing like shoes that fit. I have a wide foot, and I firmly believe, if the shoe fits, wear it. It's so nice wearing comfortable shoes. Also, the shoe is nice looking. However, I am sad to report that my puppy also loves my shoes. Apparently they taste excellent, and to some extent his love for my shoes has damaged their appearance just the tiniest bit.

Good shoes. Light weight and comfortable. My only complaint would be that the inside liner seems to pill up, which I hate. I've had other Nikes without this problem. I guess it seems to be hit or miss on whether or not the fabric that is used will pill up on you. I guess next time I will talk with someone live at Zappos for guidance prior to making the purchase.

Fantastic shoe. Has lasted me 6 months so far since I purchased them. I have used them for running and also working on an extremely hot tarmac at an airport and they have not lost support! I will be purchasing them again...if my current pair ever break down at least.

I love these shoes! They come in many sizes. I have to buy the men's shoes because they come in the extra wide. I have short, but very wide feet.

Great workout shoes. However, nothing you would go out with, unless you are the type of guy who wears gym shoes outside the gym. First off, They fit, just to size with a slight arch in the soul. Secondly, the padding isn't too much, or too little. The shoe can be lighter in weight, but it is not something you will notice after a couple of wears. Other than that white color, one the bottom of the sides, they are great shoes.

Zappos is the place to buy wide sizes. They fit perfectly and are delivered in a few days (even during the peak holiday season).

I own another pair of these in the same size and that's why I bought them. These are too tight, more narrow than the others.

These shoes fit perfectly, but the arch was too high for my severe flat feet. The width and size was good, and they were very cushioned and comfortable. I do want an arch in my shoes, but not one as high as this pair had.

This is a comfortable shoe. It breathes and, therefore, is not hot. The fact that it comes in more than one width is the reason I chose it. It has great arch support. I will buy another pair for when these wear out.

Probably the worst athletic shoe I've ever tried. Shoe is too small and too narrow (for given size/width). Upper is simply a nylon shell with zero support. Much too narrow in the toe box area. Upper does not feel solid at all. If I had to describe how the shoe felt, I'd say that this is probably what a ballerina's shoe feels like. Absolutely horrible.

I love these. I wear them all the time (they are great gym shoes). I tried to buy the generic Avia version but I returned them. The cushion support from these Nikes (given the lightweight product) is remarkable. And they last!

For a first time buyer on the internet, this was a seamless experience. Everything worked the way it was supposed to work. The shoes are wonderful. They fit great. I did read the reviews and bought a little larger size. I am very pleased with this and would do it again in 5 years when I buy shoes.

Shoes are okay. The only thing I would say about them is that the sizes are a little small.

I bought these for my husband and he says he is happy that there is no air pocket in the shoe to deflate like so many other shoes that he has had recently. He did say they were a little tight on his feet with just plain socks so I guess they run a little snug. I would suggest perhaps one shoe width wider or thinner socks or just wear them a while until they stretch.

Bought these shoes because I liked the style and that they are available in wide width. The arrived very quickly (typical Zappos stellar service) and I am very pleased. They look great, fit well, and are also very light and breathable. I may purchase an additional pair in a different color since I like them so much.

My husband and my son both love the Darts. They find them comfortable and most importantly, for them, wide enough. They both have trouble finding athletic shoes that have width and the Darts have been a shoe that has been reliable over the years as they have had several pairs. Not many athletic shoes are available in widths.

Only problem I had is that the anthracite is actually blue not black as shown in picture. I would have gotten a different set as these were to be everyday shoes and they now clash with everything I own.

Sizing seems a little small, perhaps 1/2 size, and fit seems different between left and ride shoe, particularly the arch support. Great looking shoe, seems well made and very light. Sad that it didn't fit/feel good to me.
