Love these shoes! I bought a size up because I'm training for a half marathon in these and I could probably have gone a size and half because the toe area is very narrow BUT they don't hurt my feet.

I love these shoes! They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I like the stretchy fabric and the soles are so comfy it's like walking on the beach in your bare feet. Also they are very light, they don't feel like they weigh anything. I wear a size 7 but I bought a size 7.5 and I am glad I did they run small.

I love my new Nikes. I had a hard time deciding between the black ones and the raspberry ones. I ended up getting the black ones but was worried that you wouldn't be able to see the leopard print (huge leopard print fan!). But you can clearly see the leopard print. I did have to order a half a size up after reading reviews. I'm a 6.5 but ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. Definitely a great purchase!

Even though I read the reviews that said to get a bigger size, I figured since I had narrow feet I'll just order my normal size of 9.5. Well, that failed because when I received my 9.5 they were too small. However, ordering from Zappos is awesome because it's free shipping both ways, so I just returned the 9.5 and got a 10. The only thing that sucks is waiting for the second pair to arrive, but they came in 3 days and they fit so I'm a happy camper! I love Zappos! I would say listen to the reviews because most of the times they are accurate.

I really love these shoes but they do run super super small. If you're hesitating about ordering 1.5 sizes large please don't! I was and ordered an 8, my normal running shoe size, which was of course too small. I exchanged for an 8.5 and they still felt small. I returned them and will probably go for the 9 because they are nice running shoes. They're really lightweight so great for traveling, although they are not very supportive because the whole shoe is kind of soft. I originally wanted them for a trip that involves a bit of hiking so they probably aren't the best choice for that, but I'll definitely consider them next time I need running shoes.

I love these Nikes! I get compliments on them every single time I wear them... However, they definitely run small. I would recommend ordering a half size larger if you're planning to use them for cross training, or a full size larger if you're using them for running! I am a loyal Nike customer so this really surprised me.

These are super cute but run small. Also the material they are made of isn't stretchy like Nike Free shoes. So I'd recommend getting full size larger than you normally get for Nikes.

I like the color combo of these shoes. I was trying to replace a pair of lunar Nikes I had that are worn out. These shoes are very narrow; I typically wear a size 8 in shoes but always go to 8.5 in Nike's. Had to order a size 9 in this particular style. That would be the only thing I would beware of.

I own several pairs of various styles of Nike Free shoes and I found these to be much narrower than most. I have been wearing them around the house to see if they will break-in/stretch a little, but they are still pretty tight.

I listened to the reviews and bought a half size bigger. I wear a 7.5 in every Nike I own, thus I ordered size 8. The 8 is too big. I think these shoes fit my actual size. I actually think the toe box is wider/roomier than the other Nike shoes I have (I don't run in Nike [I run in Brooks or Mizuno], just weight lift in them). Otherwise, I love these shoes!

Love the color! I took advice of other reviews and ordered a half size up...but had to order a full size up! I normally wear 8.5 and the 9 was too snug and uncomfortable. The 9.5 fits great and room to wear thicker socks too! Hoping they don't stretch too much and become too big but the 9 was just way too uncomfortable to even wear.

I wear a size 10 shoe normally and so I bought a size 10 despite what everyone was saying about them running small, and I'm glad I did. They fit me perfectly! Absolutely love this shoe, my favorite out of all the nikes I've had, and trust me, that's a lot! I recommend them!

Very happy with the shoes. I do wish I had listened to the other reviews I read before ordering. They do run very small in size so I ordered half a size bigger. Still, I had to return them for an even bigger size. I wear a 6.5 ended up with a 7.5.

Bought these on a whim, and I am in love with them. I get so many compliments! The orange is a nice peach color, not to orange. I didn't they would look as good as they did in person. Fit like typical Nike shoes, a band across the top does make them a little narrower than my last Nikes, but they will stretch. I also got them the day after I ordered them online! Why I love Zappos.

This order was my first for Zappos, but it won't be my last. I like this shoe very much. I don't know what size I wear because styles differ. The reviews said it ran small, so I ordered 5.5. However, the toe box is narrow top to sole. Side to side fits fine. So I returned the first pair and ordered 6. The left foot was still a little small, but after breaking in, is not uncomfortable; the right shoe is perfect. I would advise ordering up at least a half size, probably a whole size would be better. The arch is in the right place for me. I use it for walking--briskly--and working out at the gym. I had a little problem understanding the return website, but called Zappos. A very nice lady helped me, and the new shoes showed up within a day! Great experience.

I always get Nike Frees. One pair a year, every time one pair dies I order a new one. These Frees are way better than the last few generations. Great support for all types of movement, good cushioning (these are trainers, NOT runners so don't expect that level of cush), moderate arch support. Super comfortable, and your foot really feels stable. I totally agree with the other reviews, these run a half size small. I am ALWAYS an 11.5 in Nike, and I had to get 12s in these. All in all a good shoe, and totally cute and flashy looking.

I love these shoes! A bit snug at first, I think it might be the material. However after after a few wears they are perfect. So I would say they are very true to size. They match with everything and I get a ton of compliments on them!

I love these shoes! I have looked everywhere for them online and Zappos was the only site that had them for a decent price! They have become my favorite workout shoes. They provide great support and are awesome for the squat rack, too!

I purchased these sneakers for my daughter to go out there and move. She loves them but had to exchange them half size up. She tells me they are very comfortable and she is out there using them. Zappos exchange policy was effortless. Thank you for making my daughter happy.

These are great for my narrow feet! Zappos is not currently carrying many minimalist shoes in narrow widths so I am happy I found these. The off-center laces are nice too- no uncomfortable pressure on the top of my foot. Toe box and heel are nice and snug. All in all a great option.

I love these shoes! Don't be scared to go one full size up. I was, but after reading reviews I ordered a 9.5 even though I usually wear an 8.5. They fit perfectly. I was able to run a couple of miles with no problems after breaking them in for about a day. They are great shoes, I didn't know what I was missing!

I am obsessed with these shoes! They are lightweight. I usually wear a 6.5 in nike. My husband ordered these in 6.5 as a surprise but thankfully they fit, after reading all the reviews to go up a size. Yes, they are more snug fitting than my other nikes. I actually prefer it! I planned on using these to run in. I like that they hug my feet. The length is the same as my others. They just fit more narrow.
