Love these shoes! I think they are the comfy-est I own and they're pretty cute! I wear them on my walks and they are super plush yet give the amount of support I need. On other Nike models, I find sometimes the shoelaces pinch the top of my foot cutting circulation off if I don't tie them just right but these don't have that problem. There were some other color combinations available when I was ordering but now they're sold out - I will definitely buy a couple of the other color combos when they're avail again! Oh yeah - as always with Nike - I had to order 1/2 size larger and that was perfect.

Honestly, I was drawn to these shoes by the color. Happy to find that they were also true to size, comfortable for treadmill running, and able to absorb shock pretty decently. Very happy with this purchase.

I love these shoes. Comfortable from the beginning workout through the end of the workout. I bought these for the treadmill only. They support well and they are not heavy which is important to me.

These shoes fit me perfect. I always order a half size larger and my normal size when I order Nike. I wore them for walking the first day after I got them and they are very comfortable. Did not need to break them in at all.

I have to say...I've had Nikes in the past and with a job where I'm on my feet all day, I had not had much luck. My feet and legs would be killing me by the end of the day. But after reading reviews for this shoe, I decided to give them a try. I'm so glad I did! They are so comfortable! I not only wear these at work, but also to work out! Definitely recommend these!

I really love these shoes. My feet are bad from plantar fasciitis but these shoes are like miracle workers. I'm looking into buying another pair or 2 just to have them. I've gotten lots of compliments. Thanks Zappos!

This is a stylish, really comfortable gym shoe but I do wish Nike would add more of the same colors for women as they do for men. Women like greens and blues as well as pink and purple combinations!

Great shoe! Lightweight. Fits snugly across the top of the foot which I like. Doesn't slip off back. There is nothing touching the bunion area of my foot either. So glad Nike finally makes a size 12 women's shoe!

I've had these shoes for a few weeks now, and I really like them. I recently returned a pair of Adidas running shoes that I'd had for about 6 months, but that made my feet feel like they were dying. These shoes are cute and comfortable, although they run 1 size too small. I ordered my size, which was way too small, but exchanged it for a size up and they fit perfectly. I wear them to work out (elliptical, mostly), and around the house on weekends. My feet do feel tired at the end of the day, but that's probably normal.

I love these shoes. They were comfortable right out of the box. They had the perfect amount of support, flexible yet supportive, cradling the foot just right. And they are cute!

I just received a brand new pair of Nike Downshifter 5 runners in black, orange and grey from my cousin as a gift. I can't thank him enough for selecting these for me because I just love them! The colors have such a powerful and amazing energetic effect that just completely catches the eye and livens up every step in comfort and style! and it's the word beyond "cool" They are half a size up from my normal shoe size and they feel completely awesome. Just what I need.

I love these shoes, great support and long lasting. I bought them a year ago to start running and getting into shape and i've never had an injury. I would recommend getting a half size bigger because i developed a small hole near my big toe after a few months.

I have three pairs of these shoes; soon to be four. I absolutely love how they feel. I switch between two pairs for work and one pair for running. I work 13 hour days and they hold up and feel great the entire time. During running they are very light and feel great.

I've been looking for a comfy pair of shoes for walking the treadmill at the gym and I shall look no more! I usually wear a size 9 so I got a 9.5 and wide width. My toes have about a thumbs space to the tip of the shoe. I ordered these shoes on a Saturday morning and received them on Monday evening. I wore them to the gym immediately after receiving them and did 3 miles on the treadmill with no problems. They are light, well cushioned, good foot support, and they look cute too. I love them! I have no regret buying them!

These are cute and comfortable. It feels like I am walking on air. I did not buy half a size up as I suggested because the fabric stretches. These were snug during the initial wearing but they adjusted to my feet. They feel great. I love the shoes!

Excellent shoes; great for intervals! Tried many shoes before I found these online, they are affordable, comfortable, and are great running/training shoes. I bought a backup pair! I wish they made my size in other colors - 9.5 W.

I love these shoes! So, so comfortable and cute! I use them at the gym and decided I needed a half size smaller than what I ordered because I knew they'd stretch. I normally wear a 10 so in these I got a 9.5. I ordered a pair of Nike Revolution 2s and those seemed to run a half size smaller so I had to order a half size bigger (10.5 which thankfully they had some because that's a hard size to find!) however these are for work so different issue there. Anyway, I love them!
