I wear a size 15 shoe and have very flats soles. Normally I need to insert a pair of custom orthotics into my shoes, but these are so comfortable and cushioned that I don't even need to. On top of that, I have gotten several comments on the style. Light-weight, easy to throw on, and they feel like you are walking on clouds.

These are awesome looking shoes. They provide nice arch support. They are really uncomfortable. I tried 10½ and 11, and still, where the laces begin, there is something pushing down on the top of my foot. I know it sounds crazy, but it is really uncomfortable. I might just have weird feet, but I was looking for a good pair of running shoes, and I am still looking again because these are not going to do.

Amazingly comfortable, lightweight, great bargain! I was hesitant to purchase these after I was dissatisfied with a previous version of Frees. On a whim, purchased them and not regretting them at all. First day or of the box and got these compliments from avid runners about looks and weight of the shore. Minimalist approach for support. I have fairly flat feet and have worm them for an entire day with no discomfort.

These are great. I don't get new sneakers often, but my old ones are only 2-ish years old. But these have got to be less than 1/3 of the weight. Seriously feels like walking on air. And the price was really very reasonable. My father-in-law bought them and has the same feeling. Just a great, really comfortable shoe.

Supremely comfy and stylish. True to fit sizing. Size 9.5 fits like 9.5. Super light. Like wearing nothing. I don't run in these but I do stand for 12 hours a day and these are the best shoes I have found for this purpose so far.

Switched from an old pair of Nike Free 5.0 to this and I find them very comfortable. The extra midsole support makes a big difference but the shoe is still very light, which I like. I've gone running in them several times now with no pain or discomfort. Even played a couple of quick basketball games which I could never do in my Frees. Great shoe at a great price.

These can feel a little tight after a few hours of wearing them, but I still have to break them in more. Overall, they feel great and look fantastic.

This shoe is very comfortable, light, great for running and looks great. It runs a little narrow and long (I usually wear an 8, but had to buy a 7.5). A little tight in the beginning but after a few uses, it fits like a glove.

These are my absolute favorite shoes! I've always had a hard time finding shoes that I like that fit well and these are a dream come true! Incredibly light and breathable! The memory foam sole makes them great for long shifts at work!

I bought these shoes on the recommendation of a trainer at the gym. I take a wide shoe so I was disappointed they don't come in wide but he said he did too and not to worry. They have been great for my boot camp workouts. The flat heel helps with balance. I haven't had any trouble running that I had with other shoes due to high arches. Great shoes and glad I bought 2 pairs.

This is a quality shoe. It breathes very well and is extremely light and has decent arch support. I have very flat feet and would prefer less.

Shoes are very light and pretty comfortable, except I would prefer a little more cushion in the front for the balls of my feel. I do a lot of running outside.

True to size for most Nikes I've been wearing lately. And this: RETURN OF THE WAFFLE RACER! This shoe rules. That New Zealand coach dude legend guy said long ago that shoes should be soft, slipper-like, let your foot be your foot, etc. This is all that and more. Buy all you can before Nike stops making it...

I've never been anything but a 9.5 but had to go 10 on this one. Once I tried the 10 it was perfect. Super light weight, very comfortable, low profile, not flashy, exactly what I look for in a shoe.

Great shoes, comfortable, very lightweight and overall feel great on your feet. Not a lot of support (although there is more than you might think) but because of the light weight and thin (but durable!) soles you don't feel unsupported. Overall, great job Nike, and way underpriced, this is a great shoe.

I got these for my boyfriend. They look fantastic and work great and are comfortable. Unfortunately if you are planning to use them for running this is not the shoe for you. He wears them to lift and just around town, but on the leg days and cardio he prefers his other shoes!

Overall, these are pretty good "value Nikes." They look good, they're light, and provide pretty decent cushioning. Don't expect nearly as much spring as their Lunarlon shoes. The only thing I do not like about them is how so much of the shoe top is made of an unstretching, nonbreathing material. The only part that breathes is the area near the toe box, which is made of that standard padded mesh that is very common on classic/standard sneaker designs. So don't expect much breathability, and if your feet are a little wide these could fit tight.

I was looking for a light running shoe with a little more support than the barefoot-style shoes. This shoe is just that -- however, the insole was not the right shape for my arch. I took the insole out, and the shoes are great now.

Great looking shoes! Very light and fit true to size. Only complaint is that they are tight around the ankles. I'm 5'8' 160 lb male and this usually isn't the case when I buy shoes. All in all I still enjoy the shoes (if not I would have returned them).

Although I ordered the sames size 13 as my other Nike sneakers, the FS Light Run feels tighter than the others. Hopefully they will stretch out with more wear and become more comfortable to wear. One might want to considering ordering a size up with these sneakers.

The service was fast and easy. As for the shoes, I recommend these for anyone who needs something extremely light for summer walking. I have a marginally wide foot, and these took a few hours to break in properly (not painful, or even really uncomfortable), but the support is just right for light exercise, and the fit is quite comfortable, now. I'm not sure I'd want to run in these on a regular basis, though, as the cut is fairly low on the foot, and doesn't feel as supportive that way. Maybe they'd work with a high-impact insole. Still, I actually bought another pair in a different color, and that's saying a lot.

Very lightweight shoes seemingly good for running, good ventilation too. My problem is that I have high arches and the shoe was very tight width-wise, and the top of the shoe was pressing on the top of my foot. Will need to return these, otherwise would have been great.

Great looking shoe but no very comfortable. If you wear them for more than 20 minutes you will start to feel pressure from the top of the shoe. When I first put them on I thought they felt comfortable with good arch support, but after wearing a few hours I could not wait to take them off. Never experienced this with another pair of shoes before.
