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.

Decided to give this shoe a go and am very pleased. These are incredibly comfortable and I love the colors! Also fit true to size. I am usually a 7 1/2 in shoe size but for the Nike Free series I'm size 8. The 7 1/2 in the Flex Run 2013 is perfect for me. Am even thinking of buying another pair in another color because I love these so much!

I have wide, flat feet and never thought that I could wear Nikes because they are usually too narrow. These are surprisingly comfortable - not too narrow or too wide. I love how lightweight and not clunky they are. I was anticipating that they may feel tight after working out but they feel amazing and do not pinch my feet which I really appreciate!

I can't get over how much I love these shoes! They are so comfortable and lightweight! This is my second pair so I am definitely a fan. I normally wear a 10 but got a 9.5 because they seem to run a little large and it might be because they are a little wider. They have good arch support. I have really high arches and these don't hurt my feet at all! I also get ingrown toenails a lot (have to thank genetics for that) and these shoes don't bother them when they flare up (gross I know but there has to be someone else out there that knows what I mean!). Seriously buy these shoes-plus if they don't fit Zappos is awesome with returns!

One of the most comfortable workout shoes I have ever tried on my feet! They provide really good support and are lightweight. Love the design too. Ordered a half size down from what I normally wear, based on other people's reviews, and they fit perfect.

Best part of these shoes is the the wide toe. I have problems finding workout shoes that don't scrunch in that area and cause my toes to go numb. The fit is very comfortable and so many great colors! The white tab on the toe sole bugs me but otherwise they're great.

Bought these shoes after trying on 10 other pairs, these were the most comfortable and have served me extremely well. No problems so far, and I love that they have a splash of color without getting too crazy, like a lot of other running shoes.

So comfy - I could run for miles. For some reason these shoes seem like they don't have much support, but yet I never have any foot issues no matter how long or how far I run. Fit true to size. Super cute colors - they go with all my workout clothes.

I love these shoes! They are light-as-a-feather and don't hurt my feet even after hours on them. I usually have a hard time staying on my feet for long periods of time, but not when I wear these!

These shoes are perfect for a workout at the gym and running on a treadmill. I normally wear size 9.5 in Nike, which is the size I ordered...perfect! These shoes do not hurt my feet at all. I previously purchased the Nike Free 5.0 V4 and they were killing my feet after my feet swelled up during a run on the treadmill. Remember, shoes fit differently after running. They ran way too narrow. These were the perfect alternative/ replacement. The front of the sneaker is wider and the soft material allows my feet to breathe, as well as make the shoe more flexible. These should not be used outdoors, as debris will get stuck underneath, unless you live in a city with concrete everywhere. I am super pleased with my purchase.

I have very high arches and over stretched ligaments. I have custom orthotics to support the arch and these sneakers house the orthotic very well. My heel is narrow and the front is wide and the toe box is on the boxy side, making this style great for my feet. These sneakers are so flexible and comfortable that I have multiple pairs to wear when I'm not running. I wish this exact 2013 flex was more readily available. The 2014 flex is completely different.

Best pair of sneakers I've ever bought. I had purchased these the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer walk that I did last year. It was a 2-day, 39 mile walk and aside from the sore leg muscles, these shoes did my feet good. Great price for the quality and comfort too.

I absolutely love these shoes. I just got really into running recently and was looking for moderately priced shoes that would give me comfort and support as I ran. These shoes deliver. I will admit that I am not really attracted to the look or color options (I got the black, pink and white with green laces. That was the best that I saw). But as soon as I put them on and ran around, I knew they were the shoes. There is so much cushioning in these shoes. I ran 2.1 miles the first day I got them and came home feeling better than I have in any other shoe. I highly recommend them for the price and comfort. Super flexible and supportive. I am normally a 7½ in shoes and I ordered these in 7½ They fit just right. They are also wide enough which I like. I feel like a lot of shoes are running more and more narrow. These shoes were just right. Note: Zappos delivered in two days. You cannot beat that either.

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.
