Love the shoes, they are super comfortable and light. They were true to size (I'm an eight and I ordered an eight). I got the grey, light blue, orange combo. It might look coral but its def orange. I love the fit!

I love these running shoes, and this is now my second pair. After struggling with shin splints for years, I thought I'd try a lower heel drop running shoe in a last ditch effort to save my shins. Turns out, it has helped a lot and I've had almost no problems with my shins since. There is definitely less padding and cushiness than conventional running shoes, but it helps my stride feel more even (less landing on the heel). I really love them.

These shoes are so comfortable, however I have figured out they aren't good running shoes for me. I overpronate a bit with my left foot and developed hip pain while training for a 1/2 marathon. They will be great gym shoes though! Super comfy and cute! Everyone always says how nice they are....it's funny when people compliment athletic shoes!

I got these in the gray and hot pink and they are so cute! I was a little scared because I never had a pair of Nikes before so I did not know whether they would fit true or not but they are perfect. I had to give in. Everyone has them and I really want to take up running. They are really lightweight and they were on sale. I suggest everyone take advantage, I cannot wait to use them.

Great shoe for a great price. Not the most top of the line Nike, but definitely enough support and cushion for moderate runners.

Lightweight, flexible and breathable athletic shoe. Plus, it's good looking! Perfect for my foot and for my needs. I do not appreciate heavy, over-built shoes as they interfere with ease and comfort of movement.

Love these shoes! Ordered them & they were shipped/delivered the next day! Usually Nikes run narrow but these are wide at the toe! Very light weight with perfect cushion! Shoe fits true to size! I want to order every color! Great price too!

I did not like these shoes at all. first pair of Nike's i haven't been satisfied with. I would not be able to workout in these for longer than 10 minutes. They felt awful on my feet and actually hurt when i put them on. Yes they are very light weight which is good but i felt if i did any jumping in these then they would fall apart. I ordered the dark grey and bright pink and i noticed the sole and shoe laces were two different colors. It looked tacky and cheap. Going to have to return them. Only good thing about them is they were TTS.

These shoes are very lightweight and felt comfortable at first, but after a couple hours my feet really ached especially right at the toe box where the material is a little bit tough. If you have a wider foot or bunions, I'd suggest getting a wide width in these or trying a different shoe. The arch support wasn't very great. They look cute and would be good for people who have narrow feet.

These shoes are so great! I am not an avid runner, however when I do exercise they shoes work perfectly. They are quite stylish and come in so many fun colors. They are very durable (I've had mine over a year without them wearing out) and fit great. These are a great bargain for the comfort and durability they provide.

These shoes are so cute and got many compliments. I have to give them a bad review because they hurt my arches really bad! I'm pretty sure I have almost flat feet, so that could be the problem.

I was excited about trying this style of Nike shoe, however, I was disappointed to try them on and feel how stiff the sole and bottom of the shoes felt. They provide little to no cushioning. This might be acceptable to anyone who prefers the barefoot running experience. I prefer a little more cushioning, so I sent these back. I would say though they run true to size and the colors are more vibrant than the pictures provide here.

These are my first Nikes and I'm so glad I bought them. They're lightweight and super comfortable for jogging and long walks. The only downside is that there isn't any place to put my Nike+ sensor and have it read accurately. I might have to cut a hole into the sole to accommodate it, unfortunately. Other than that, it's a really great shoe. I just wish all Nike shoes were Nike+ ready.

These are very lightweight with a wide boxy toe area, good ventilation. They are great summer casual sport shoes. They are nice and roomy. I either take a 9 or 9.5 in shoes, and the 9 fits me very nicely.

More fashion than function. The arch was too far back on my foot, although overall the sizing was correct for my 8.5 size. Not a lot of cushioning either. Cute but not that serious of a shoe.

I found these shoes just your average running shoes. I've had them so far for about 2 months and I've found that they feel like my old Adidas that were pretty cheap. I didn't think that the shoes were particularly bad or good but some things I did like were the grip is pretty good on them and they don't get too hot when you're running. I also own the Nike revolution shoes and I expected these to be slightly better than them but they ended up having pretty much the same feel and same weight. (I use these for hs track.)

Love the shoes. They are very flexible and true to the color that you see. The mesh at the top allows your feet to breathe, and for water to get in so don't wear in the rain.

After searching for a new pair of sneaks, I decided why mess with a good thing and ordered a replacement pair of these babies. These shoes are great. Lightweight yet very supportive. I wear them to the gym, Zumba classes, and around town. The mesh makes them very cool which is great when working out. I run between a 10.5-11 and the 11 fit great. Love the thunder blue I ordered, great alternative to gray!

I gave up on Nike several years ago because they didn't fit my wide feet. I decided to give these a try because they didn't look too narrow. So glad that I did because I love them! I wear them for cross training, and I couldn't be happier with them.

Moderate to serious runners beware! These are by no means real running sneakers. I'd say they're one step up from converse. I'm not a hardcore runner; I run about 2 miles 3-4 times/week, but these are still not the sneakers for me. They're cute, but more for the "I look like I worked out but I really didn't."
