After trying several NB athletic shoes locally and with Zappos I stumbled on this Nike Flex 2013 Run shoe in the black/pink locally. You can't imagine the number of shoes I have tried with 3/4 orthotics, having bunions, neuromas and bent toes. This shoe felt right the moment I put it on, works for my narrow heels yet lets my toes spread. It isn't overly padded at the heel like so many NB shoes. It is light weight, cushy and roomy in the toes and I am experiencing no pain with my Theta Orthotics and this shoe. It is also quite cute!! It has some arch support but I require more. The shoe liner works great over the orthotic; it has the flange at the arch area to fully cover the orthotic. Unless you have orthotics that are full length to replace the liner this is an important consideration. I was so happy to find these shoes and now I am getting ready to buy other colors. FINALLY I am able to keep a pair of shoes from Zappos. THANK YOU Zappos!

I am so disappointed. The reviews looked good for these shoes. I have high arches and tend to under-pronate, so I went ahead and got them. Wrong choice. After wearing them for a month, I have so much pain in my arches after running that I am having to take recovery days more often. I am stuck with them now since I wore them and you can only return shoes unworn. I guess I just have to deal with the pain or stop running. Thanks a lot, Nike. I should have switched brands and gone with Mizunos or Asics. These shoes also feel bigger than they should be. They feel so loose on my heel and I don't have narrow feet. AND the threads are coming loose. I only run on the treadmill so it isn't like I am rough on them or anything. Don't buy these if you have high arches. Just don't.

I really like this shoe. The wider toe bed was great! I've had minor foot surgery that can be aggravated by tight shoes so this shoe fit the bill. First time out wore them all day no problems, aches or pains. I hope Nike keeps producing this style of shoe because I will definitely order this particular shoe again and again.

I bought these shoes because they were supposed to be good for the group fitness dance class I take. I wore them twice, and immediately I could tell they did not provide me with the support of my other shoes. After the second time, I had to take a week off from my class and I had to wear my ankle brace for a few days. They offered no support at all. Also, I have fairly large feet (9 1/2) but these shoes made my feet look absolutely humongous! I will be returning them.

This is my second pair of these and they didn't disappoint. So lightweight and comfortable. I wore out my black with pink laces and replaced them with the black with electric green laces. I run a 5K every day so I am already looking forward to wearing these out and replacing them again! And of course, I LOVE Zappos service?

Love these shoes! They are super light weight and comfortable. I do a mix of cardio and weight lifting 3-4 times/week and they are great. Occasionally when I run, my heels get sore in them- they don't have a ton of arch support but the ankle support is good. I run 2-3 miles at a time and they're fine for that but for a long distance runner, I would recommend a shoe with a little more support. Overall, I'm very happy with them. The pink is a really nice bright shade too!

I like these now that I got the right size, but I felt that they ran a true half-size too big. I am always a size 10, and the tens were incredibly long. The 9.5 fit pretty well (a tiny, tiny bit too long still, but I kept them).

I love these shoes. I have bought 4 pairs as I am afraid the new model will not be the same. I have struggled finding a shoe that is light weight, cool (I live in the desert) and will tighten enough for my narrow foot. This shoe fit all my concerns and I love love them and they are cute. I get compliments all the time. Give them a try; I don't think you will be disappointed.

Great purchase. Since getting plantar fasciitis, I've been very conscious of wearing shoes that have good support even if its just a fifteen minute walk. The trouble is my five year old athletic shoes were ugly and bulky. The first thing I noticed upon trying these on is how light they are. I've also gotten lots of positive comments on how cute these are. I put in about six miles a week on an elliptical machine, and my feet have been very comfortable.

So excited for these shoes! I desperately needed new running shoes and did a lot of research before buying. After reading reviews these seemed like the best choice! They are perfect! Extremely comfortable. As soon as I tried them on a went for a lite run and played Just Dance all night and have never experienced such comfort from a work out! Awesome shoes and the best price was here on Zappos! Thank you!

So, I ordered these without reading the reviews and then read them while I was waiting for my shoes to come in and I was a little bit worried because there were some not-so-favorable reviews. HOWEVER, these shoes are awesome!! I normally order an 8 in sneakers, but decided to order half a size up because I plan on running long distances in this and don't want rubbing/blistering to occur. I have wide and nearly flat feet and these shoes are AWESOME. They provide really good arch support, they're not too narrow (although I never really have a problem with width and sneakers), and they're super cute! They are really lightweight which is nice for running and I just went on my first run with them and have zero complaints. Probably the best running shoes I've ever purchased!! Hoping they'll last through my upcoming half marathon!

These particular Nike Flex are the most comfortable and stylish shoes I've ever worn. Lightweight, plenty of toe box room and yet don't look real wide on the foot but rather slender and cute looking. I love them and would recommend them in a heartbeat!

Just got these today and as soon as I put them on, I fell in love! I never liked Nike shoes because they lacked in arch support, but these were perfect! These shoes are light and flexible. Perfect to wear while working-out to T25! I must buy another pair or two!

My feet love this shoe! I have a very wide (D) foot in front with a narrow heel, and this shoe fits me beautifully. Normally I'd wear an 8W but this 8.5 regular width fits very well. Flexible, light, with a pleasing color scheme, this is a super choice. Tried it on in DSW, bought it, bought another color here. Seems to be holding up well so far; I've hiked in them about 8 times and no wear visible. Not usually a Nike fan, but this is a good shoe.

Best walking she ever! My husband, our mothers and I love this shoe. It is very light weight, comfortable, roomy toe box, and good arch support. I can walk for miles without shin discomfort or tired legs and feet. It is a neutral support shoe. The different color varieties are fun, too.

These are extremely comfortable to walk in. But I had bought them for cross-training - working out with my trainer at the gym and these are way too flexible for me to do lateral activities.

These sneakers are incredibly comfortable. I walk about 5 miles per day and thanks to these sneakers I no longer have aching feet. Bathe colors are fun and I get a lot of compliments. I wear either a 6 or 6.5 shoe. Based on reviews I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. I highly recommend these, especially if you have problem feet.

After a lot of buy/return cycles what I found is that Nike sneakers vary a lot in front-end styling details that make a big difference in how the shoe feels. This style has a wider and taller toe area (with stability in side to side foot movement). If you don't like to have your toes squished, check the different views of a shoe to decide if it will work for you. In length, I finally bought this pair one-half size smaller than my Asics running shoes. They are cute, colorful, and now fit perfectly!

My boyfriend bought me these shoes as a belated Christmas gift, because he works in the service industry and absolutely adored his Nike Free shoes. However, I have been so utterly disappointed with my experience with these shoes. BUYER BEWARE! -The pink mesh material has black thread in the weaving. This has the unfortunate consequence of making the shoes look very dirty, with the slightest amount of wear, despite vigilant cleaning. -I wore these shoes running 3-4 times short distances (1-2 miles) and minimal day-to-day errand shopping, but by looking at the shoes you would have thought I had completed multiple marathons! The tread wore down as easily as butter, same with the insoles! After less than an hour of semi-vigorous exercise! -The fit in the toe is very wide, like a duck bill. This has the consequence of making one feel off balance. -The SMELL. I have never, ever, ever had smelly feet or shoes, but something about the fibers in these shoes holds in moisture. Gross. Be prepared for sweaty, smelly feet, even with socks, even if you just are taking a short 10-15 minute walk. Overall, just incredibly disappointed. I wish that I had followed my gut when I first tried them on--I should have returned them instantly. Since my boyfriend bought them as a gift I felt obligated to give them a shot. My Mizuno running shoes that I ordered from Zappos have held up excellently the past 2+ years--way better than the 4 months I have very moderately worn these shoes! Your money is much better spent on a different product, or site!

These shoes are very lightweight and breathe well. I have had arch problems in the past and these shoes have fairly good support. I like how the shoe tongue is sewn in place to avoid sliding and running feels like running on a cloud. The shoes have a wider toe area which is very comfortable since I have wide feet. My toes are not squished together like in other shoes.
