I ordered these for my son at the same time I ordered the Lunarglide 3 for my daughter. My son's shoes were marked a 6 and my daughters were a 5 but they were exactly the same size. I'd say these shoes although very cool and light run at least a full size smaller than you'd think.

Bought this shoe for my daughter. Shoe lasted two days. Upper is glued - not stitched. Do not buy this shoe if you have an active child. Cute shoe, but not well made.

This sneakers lasted just two months for my son. The rubber coating on the tip of the shoes which were held together by glue started coming apart. Also,this shoes runs full size smaller and slightly narrower; however, it did offer good arch support and was light in weight.

My review has to do most with the excellent customer service I received! I called at almost 12 midnight and the customer service rep was a dream! Nike Free Runs all look the same, so what stood out most for me was how pleasant and helpful the rep was.

These are great shoes for my nine year old son. They are super light, but sturdy and comfortable! Sizing runs typical for Nikes. They run small, so go up a size, as usual.

My son wanted the grey/black ones so that you would see the stars in the fabric in the back, otherwise he would have rated these higher for style.

I bought these shoes for my son. He loves them and they are only worn out after 8 months of nonstop usage. They run a little small and narrow but otherwise great shoes.

My 11 year old loves these shoes. I had to exchange for half a size larger, which is usually the case with Nike. They are comfortable and have held up very well. He has gotten many compliments because of the bright colors.

My son is 9 years old and these are probably his favorite running shoes ever. Zappos quick shipment made it very easy to swap these just in time for a special event. This saved us a ton of time traveling to the mall.

I purchased these for our 10 year old son. He just fell in love with the bright orange color. He still has his Nike Lunar Max that eventually became outside shoes and then wanted to try these for this school pair. These are light weight and are very nice looking. DO NOT buy the orange color. They get dirty so quick and are very hard to clean. He only uses them for school and they still get so dirty. I just ordered the black and lime green version and he is anxious to wear those. Great shoe, just don't get the light colors.

These shoes are durable and stylish (I was concerned that they would be bright and gaudy). I got them for my 11 year old son and they are his primary shoe. The only issue was the laces, they are constantly coming untied. If you get these prepare to double knot the laces. Great shoe otherwise.

I loved these shoes. I bought them and they lasted 7 months. Since my feet have grown I can't were my shoes, but since they are so durable I washed them and sent them to my cousin. Amazing shoe. 5 star.

Love these shoes. My daughter has a pair in purple that we bought in August 2012. They hold up very nicely in the wash. I was commenting to her this weekend I have never seen a pair of shoes last like this and look so new 5 months later...and we have been through many tennis shoes. They are extremely comfortable as well. All time favorite tennis shoe and worth the money.

I'm starting a fitness routine and didn't want to spend a lot of money. I normally wear an 8 in women. I have thin/normal width feet. I ordered a boys 6.5 & the fit is awesome. Will buy another soon. So light feels like slippers.

My son loves these! They seem to run half a size small (my son has wider feet, so it may just be a little more narrow and we went up half a size).

My son loves these shoes. When they came out of the box, we thought the color might hurt our eyes (it's so bright!) -- but everywhere he goes, his shoes are a spectacle -- he loves them.
