I love these shoes! I have plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, but I work out 7 days a week... everything from spinning to zumba, and these shoes do not hurt my feet and have plenty of cushioned support.

These shoes are very uncomfortable. The outer material was very hard, the insoles do not have enough padding. The heel bottom goes back instead of straight with the back of the shoe, although it did not appear that way from the picture. It was even difficult to get the shoes on. My feet hurt immediately after putting them on. I was very disappointed, especially after reading the previous reviews. I will keep looking for a comfortable sneaker.

I have always been a huge fan of this particular shoe. The 2012 model has not only lived up to expectations, but has reached an all new level of excellence. I am an avid runner and athlete, and these shoes a fabulous! They might be pricey, but they are definitely worth it. Lightweight, supportive, and built to last.

I have a heel spur and my Podiatrist suggested that I get any Nike Air Max sneaker. I bought these because of the good reviews. Purchased the neon pink color because they were the cheapest, and I work out indoors so not worried about the white getting dirty. Overall, these have to be the most comfortable pair of Nike's I've ever owned. They run true to size, so even if you wear orthotics like me, stick with your normal size. I wear a 7 in shoes, 7.5 in sneakers and the 7.5 is perfect. The toe bed/sides are fabric and really soft, which is great if you have bunion problems. All in all, if you have any sort of heel spur problems or plantar fasciitis, these sneakers are perfect. Thinking of buying another pair in black.

I bought my son a pair of these and after slipping my foot into his I had to get a pair for myself. I am a Jazzercise instructor and I workout hard teaching 7 classes a week. These sneakers are the most comfortable and supportive I have found in a few years. Worth every penny!

I love these shoes! They are so comfortable, and there are no places that rub or cause irritation even though they feel a bit tight over the toe box but the mesh stretches while you move. They run a bit long but my toes do not hit the front of the shoes during running and I was able to order my usual dress shoe size instead of going up a size as I have had to do on my last couple of Nike pairs (meant I could wear them right away instead of returning them and waiting for my exchange to arrive - I tried them on in a store first before ordering online). The cushioning is great, like walking on pillows. They are supportive although I added an insert for arch support due to plantar fasciitis from previous shoes. The colors are great! They are very expensive but at least I got them on sale. I assume they will be cold to run in other seasons but I will enjoy them during the warmer months while they last.

This is a great pair of running shoes. I usually wear a size 9 or 9.5. I read the description of this shoe on another big store website and it said that the shoe runs small and you should order a half size up. So I went by that and ordered a 9.5. It ended up being way too big and I had to return it for a 9. The 9 was perfect and gave me the little bit of breathing room as well. I run an average of 2 miles and this shoe is great for outdoor as well as indoor runs. The cushion in this shoe gives great arch support. I use this shoe when I do other training as well and it is very comfortable. The material is light and breathes. In addition to all the functional pluses, it also looks great. I've got many compliments for it.

I have worn Nike running shoes for about 20 years, and these shoes did not dissapoint. They have air cushions throughout the whole shoe which was my criteria. Unfortunately, I can't find any other Nike's with air cushions in the front and back. These are extremely comfy! I have narrow feet and I think Nikes fit better. I have trouble with shin splints but found that I don't get them with Nike's.

I love these shoes! I ordered these for use at the gym. I use them for spinning, kick boxing class and zumba and they are great. I also wear them on the weekends with jeans because they are so cute! The pink is really bright. Perfect.

I have wore the air max shoes for many, many years and this model is as comfortable and well built as the others. Yes, they are pricey, but that has not changed either. (Unfortunately.) Additionally, I like the gray'ish tint and they do not get as dirty as fast.

It has only taken 35 years to finally find the most comfortable shoe! I have wide feet and usually have to buy a half size larger but not the case with these. I barely have an arch and these have great support. I highly recommend.

Shoes were very comfortable initially, but the toe box was a little too narrow and the arch was a little too high for me. I even bought them a half size bigger than I normally wear. For a 3-4 mile run they worked great. But when I went 7-8 miles, my feet became uncomfortable and it led to cramps. I have a wider toe box and slightly flatter arch. I've had this problem with other Nike shoes, but I thought these might be different based on other reviews. So if you have a wider front foot, these won't be for you for long runs. The base was great for joints (soft). The construction was very sturdy and seems like it will last a long time. The customer service was the best EVER!

Best shoe I've ever had - ever. Recently I tried the AirMax Tailwind - did not like those - stiff, hurt my heel. Bought Asics Gel Nimbus - love those! But these Air Max + 2012 even better. The material of the shoe is unique so I'm waiting to see how it holds up. The comfort, the support, the cushioning is outstanding.

These are the best shoes ever! I have weak knees and am prone to getting shin splits, but with these shoes it is just nothing but support and cushion! They are expensive shoes, but they are so worth it! I also love the bright pink color!

Nothing but the best running, training shoes. Air Max is always the best. I've been buying these shoes for 4 years tried others but the fit is amazing. My foot is normal to narrow and this kind of shoes fits well plus the neon pink is a really nice touch.

I love the Nike Air Max+2012. I just had neck surgery and needed a good pair of sneakers that would be supportive for walking. This sneaker is a winner for me! The support has been great and I hope I will get back to running soon.

I was so anticipating this shoe's arrival, especially since it was marked as 'true to size'. However, I felt it ran a little big, maybe not a full half size bigger, but that was my only option. I also felt it was more narrow than expected. So I am sending it back unfortunately. It is, however, a great looking shoe and I will be jealous when I see it on other feet!

Nike Air Max+2012 isn't as comfortable as Nike Zoom Vomero+7. Nike Air Max 2012 runs a little narrow in the toes, and the material covering the outside of the shoe is a bit too firm and uncomfortable for me; specifically the outside material surrounding the heel and rear of the foot. This shoe does have good cushioning, in its favor. I'm just recovering from foot issues and trying to get back into shape so I need a shoe that fits well with my orthotics and is very comfortable all over.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike Zoom Vomero +7 and Brooks Ghost

I really loved these shoes and sad that I have to buy a new pair. These are really cushy and comfortable. When I first put them on I believe I said "it's like walking on a cloud". My only complaint is that the little air bubble is quite thick making it awkward if you are sitting on the ground.

Best. Investment. Ever. I'm a nurse, so I'm on my feet pretty much all day. My feet would ache horribly after each of my shifts, so I decided it was time to invest in a good pair of shoes. I asked a couple of my co-workers if they had any suggestions, and they said they swore by Air Maxes (they were even wearing them that day!). So upon their suggestion, I bought these and I am so glad I did! So comfy and my feet don't ache too much anymore after work, if at all. I bought the neon pink ones, and I have gotten so many compliments and positive comments; great conversation starter. :)
