"Fit: I purchased a half size up from what I usually buy at Nike and they fit perfect...the heel doesn't hug quite like the lunarglides, but tightening the shoes a bit does the trick and doesn't put any strain on your foot because of the flyknit material, if anything it feels more like part of your foot. It is extremely light and the weight seems perfectly distributed and it is a very solid shoe, a lot more so than some of the competition that is the same weight.
Quality: have not had them very long, but if you only run in this shoe or wear it to run errands it seems like it would last you just as many miles as any other running shoe. I'm impressed w/ the quality, and the flyknit material is outstanding.
Performance: They are a joy to run in and the weight and comfort is balanced very well! You could run anything from a 5k to an ultra and would be fine in these things.
"I will potentially buy a pair of these to run in. But when I decided to buy these I just needed a great pair of sneakers to wear with shorts and use as style in the summer. Since my feet are beat up from running I tend to keep them covered and I always look to the most minimal, lightest and breathable shoe out there; previously often being my former racing flats. These up the anti, where the neutral gray and the pop of color give them the versatile fashion.
At first they seem a little small but I have grown accustomed to them. I hope they continue to do this sole, versus the Lunar sole, and add more neutral styles as well. Ultimately whether for running or fashion, they're great shoes!"
"When i first put on the sneakers they were a little tight but after i wore them a few more times they are much more comfortable now. i love the colors and ive gotten plenty of compliments. thanks nike overall great experience"
"I really like to look of these. They are also pretty light with a solid amount of cushion. Only complaint is that I didn't realize they run slightly small. I normally wear a size 8 in casual sneakers but 7.5 in running shoes and soccer boots because I like them tight, but I should have gone with the 8 in these. I have only wore them a couple times so I am hoping they stretch out a bit."

"I wear these shoes to the office, travel, and casually around the weekend. They are so comfortable and lightweight. My feet can breath and they are fashionable to wear with slim fit chinos and skinny jeans rolled up. I get a lot of complements on them!"
"I just ordered my 4th pair of the Flyknit trainers, I have had 2 in the electric green and now 2 in the volt/grey. The run a bit small, but nothing that would cause me to order a size up for, I just wear thinner socks. I use these shoes as my Triathlon racing shoes and I have nothing but fantastic things to say! In addition I get some great compliments on the electric green every time I wear them in a race. Too bad all they see is the soles as they are chasing me! Love them, I'd order them forever and ever!"

After speeding towards your soles and footprints the whole race, they'll be looking for your secrets. Don't let your kicks take the credit, those miles are all you.
"First of all, I went a half size up. These shoes fit more narrow than a normal shoe would because they're unisex so men and women could both wear them. I have always been in love with flyknit! Just the different designs that it's capable of making is simple amazing. I have the multicolor pair and whenever I'm our wearing them without a doubt I get a couple of people who just stare at them. Thank you Nike!"
"These shoes look really great and I wish I could love them, if only I wouldn't have these insane blisters...
I tried the shoes in one of the Nike stores on a treadmill, and I decided later to buy a pair online in Electric Green because they look awesome. I was so happy when they arrived and I tried them on for a run pretty much immediately.
Then the pain began. When running in the store, and walking in the Trainers, I had no problems, but after running a mile in the shoes the heels began to slip and I developed a pair of enormous blisters. I've been trying for two months -- new lacing techniques, socks, anti-chafe sticks, new insoles -- but nothing helps and I felt myself forced to buy a new pair of running shoes.
I really wish I could love these shoes but so far they have only caused me pain!"

I have this exact same issue, no problems for the first few days of general wear, but not even 3 miles into a run & my heels were screaming.
"This shoe is so light and breathable, it's ridiculous. I usually run on lunar eclipse threes, but compared to my flyknits the lunars are heavy, hard, and clanky. I ran on these and they feel like i'm running in socks. The cushion is also soft for my faster pace speeds. It's a wonderful shoe, and I love the style too."

A lightweight pair of kicks for a fast runner. We'd be hard pressed to find a story that was better written. We can't wait to see where it takes you.
"The Nike Flyknit trainer is an extremely comfortable shoe that runs true to size. It ran a bit narrow for my foot, but I am flat footed and my foot tends to be a bit wide. The flyknit technology really does provide breathability and stability. The Nike Zoom featured in the heel is an excellent addition to this shoe, adding comfort. I haven't done much running in this shoe yet. I mainly purchased this shoe for walking and casual wear and they have proved excellent for that purpose."

It's always nice to find a comfortable shoe that let's your foot exhale as well. Whether you use these to hit the pavement or make fashion statements, we don't see how you can go wrong.
"I used first generation trainer, and they were awesome. I ran around 400-500 miles in them. They did not have the cushioning+lining at the heel area. The only complain (a big one), in this pair is that they added inner linning in the heal area which is supposed to be like a sock (no lining, just the flyknit sock like fit). I am disappointd by that, but overall these are great shoes; comfortable, true to size, right amount of grip, swag, arch support, Nike+ support. That was another challenge, to find the newly released shoes with Nike+ support. Nike, please offer Nike+ support in the newly released shoes, it is a great tool, very helpful, seemless, and convenient so we (Nike+ users) can get more options to chose from; thanks!"
"I have the whit/black trainer, and it is a very nice shoe! Even bought my mom a pair. However, the outsole comes APART very easily!!! Within 2-3 months of wearing it, I have too weekly glue the parts that are coming apart! Other than that, this shoe is a 10/10"

You shouldn't have to glue, if it's a built defect, Nike will honor replacing your shoe. Nike stands by their product and their customers
"I don't use these to run, I bought these shoes for casual wear to work. But I do walk around 10,000 steps a day, and at first they fit a little weird in the narrow portion of the toe and a little weird on the arch/bridge of my foot. After I broke them in after a few times of wearing them though, they fit great and very comfortable. Highly recommend!"
