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 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!

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.

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.

This is my second pair of this Nike running shoe. I love them. Very light and comfortable. Fit is wonderful and feel great whether I am out for a walk or a run. Lots of compliments on the color combination. Would recommend.

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.

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?

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.
