I use these shoes for day to day walking around my college campus, and they have turned out great! They took a little while to break into, but after I got used to them I have not had anything to complain about. They have great flexibility, but offer plenty of support as well. A very breathable, comfortable shoe that is good for just about anything. I highly recommend it!

Well I was a bit sceptical after trying these on and feeling how snug they were. I was afraid my feet would start to hurt after a while but I wearing thick cotton socks at the time. If you have wide fieet, these won't work for you although the material does give somewhat so YMMV. However, they felt awesome barefoot so I bought all new polyester no show workout socks and they fit perfect after that. I went to the gym and they felt awesome on the gym floor and stayed snug on my feet the whole time and didn't hurt at all. I also did my daily mile walk up my hill here by my house and the walking comfort couldn't be any better. Great support, comfort and style, what more could you ask for? Definitely recommend.

Most light and breathable shoe in my size ever. It is so hard to get anything other than top of the line running shoes made in 16 that I have been considering buying a second pair. I wish it came with more color selections. This is the only one that doesn't look kind of crazy.

These are good looking but they run too narrow for my husband who is normally an 8½M in all his shoes. We returned and ordered half size up and they were still too narrow. He has worn Nikes in the past so I am not sure why these did not work.

My son has a difficult shoe size to find and we always shop at Zappos. These particular sneakers are light and extremely comfortable for working out which he does at least 4 times a week.

Awesome shoe for weight training and Crossfit. Very stable and sticks to mat floors and concrete. A little snug on the width.

I bought this shoe to work out in but when I got the shoe it felt very small. I returned the size 12 for a 13. Other than that it's a great shoe.

These look great and have good lateral support. I have the free running shoes, but these are my new favorite shoes! They are must haves for any gym athlete.

I like these but gotta send them back. I am not sure if its the arch or that they are narrow. Either way they are a nice but a bit ill fitting for me. Guess I should stick with what I know fits.

Brands I'd also recommend: Not sure. Pumas fit me nicely

The soles on these are too soft for lifting. I was hoping to find a good cross training shoe that had a compromise between a soft sole and a hard lifting sole so that I did not have to swap shoes constantly when moving between weights and endurance. While I absolutely love the way these look, the flex in the sole does not provide the stability you need for lifting. While they are better than typical running shoes in this regard, I do not think they should describe these as appropriate for anything beyond very basic weightlifting. The fit was true to size, but the tightness at the base of the laces was enough to convince me that I could not keep these even as general training shoes.

I bought these shoes for weight lifting at my gym. I like how lightweight they are and how grippy the soles are so you never have to worry about your feet slipping when you are lifting or doing agility moves. They seem to have good lateral support too. These shoes are somewhat stiff out of the box though, they take a little while to break them in. Also, I wish the laces were a little longer. I'd recommend them as a shoe for weight lifting or bootcamp style workouts, but not for just running.

Brands I'd also recommend: Under Armour

Very comfortable shoe but it has a fairly high heel that gives me some shin soreness if I do a lot of walking. Otherwise nice shoe.

My son loves these shoes. Only thing is, the very back is cut super high and so they give him blisters. Hopefully, they will break in some and stop with the blisters.

I usually wear my Converse in size 13, and a 14 was perfect for these! I've never been a big kine fan as they usually run too narrow. But after listening to what other people said about sizing up with Nike, I decided to give them a try. And I think I may have found my new favorite shoe, love the look and the colors are awesome!

Comfortable, light and stylish. These are great for running our just for casual wear. Not subtle colors but also less loud than I expected. Fit is on the small side.

This is a comfortable great looking shoe. I'm 6'4", 250, so I need good support for working out. As it turns out I got a versatile shoe that I can wear almost anywhere. It does run small, I went a full size up from my usual, and it fits perfect.

Really great shoes and they fit just right. At first they feel too small, but once broken in they fit like a glove. I use primarily for lifting weights and crossfit and they are just what I need. Zappos Customer Service was incredible without question. There was a problem with the online form, so I called them to place they order. Not only did they take care of the order, but also upgraded me to free next day shipping because of the trouble (minor IMHO). Very impressed. From now on all shoe purchases will be from Zappos.

I use these shoes exclusively for crossfit style work outs. This is my second pair of these shoes if that tells you anything. For the types of movements performed in crossfit, they work great. I would not use them for any type of extended running or jogging. There is just not enough cushion for that.
