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.

Right out of the box these sneakers performed! I ran 3 miles and had my best time! I've continued wearing them for a few weeks and they are holding up well. No complaints!

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!

I am normally a size 11, but sometimes find that sneakers run big. Because a 10.5 was available I followed my instincts and ordered a half-size smaller. Fortunately, this turned out to be just the right size so I do suggest ordering a half or perhaps even a full-size down. Other than that I would also add that the shoes are very comfortable, and after a month in personal training, have worked out well.

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.

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!
