Nike has such an amazing array of athletic shoes, sadly the women's section is so small compared to the men's. I'm lucky enough to be able to shop in the kids section so I have more to choose from. Aside from that their shoes are durable, comfortable and reasonably priced. I've had my runners for 3 years now and they still look new.
It's been really hard trying to find the perfect running shoe. I wanted something comfortable, affordable and of course stylish. Nike is the only way to go, I bought these black and bright pink runners and I have found no flaw in them. I have owned them for a little over a year now and I think I love them more than the very first day I bought them and they still look good as new! I would recommend Nike to everyone, the brand is reliable and amazing, no other brand compares.
Love all Nike gears and how wide their selections are. This bad-ass fitness partner in crime came in black and pink shade with artistic cut-outs! Nice fit, true to its size and very comfortable.
Nike Running shoes provides the best support for the runner in your life. Nike is well priced and is a great quality.
I always choose Nike when buying running shoes. They are great quality and very comfortable.
Bizarre - whoever started this must not be a runner... Nike has a ton of shoe models so it's impossible to write a universal review for all their shoes!
That being said, I'll post my reviews of 2 of their lines:
- Nike Lunarglide series - the 3 series was terrible in my opinion, but thankfully improved when they created the 4 series in 2012 and now the 5 series. The 4 and the 5 are really similar in my opinion. Great for mild overpronators. Nice cushioning, but still very light and the design holds your foot well. Great color combos as well... I've bought a couple of pairs this past year and they make up part of my regular running rotation.
- Nike Free Run series - this line has really expanded and they now include some variations on stability based on the number (e.g. 3.0, 4.0, 5.0)... this line is one of the original "barefoot like" rides. I can't use these for normal running, but I do like them for casual walking. Again, super fun colors and good weekend wear.
Hubby has used one of their top end running shoes, the Flyknit Lunar 1. It's super striking and I love the woven design. It's one of his favorites.
I have the purple Nike Free Run 3 shoes and I absolutely love them! I really hate wearing heavy, bulky shoes so these are perfect for me as they literally feel like your not evening wearing shoes. They are super comfortable, stylish, and offer great support while making feet feel weightless. They are extremely breathable as well so my feet don't get too hot or sweaty while I am running and exercising. They are a great indoor and outdoor shoe and I would 100% recommend them to anyone :)
I love my Nike running shoes. They are very light and comfortable for wearing and most importantly when I am running. I have very small feet but these shoes fit my feet perfectly and the ventilation in the shoes is great so my feet don't feel gross when I'm running. I am very satisfied with these shoes and the way they function in my workouts.
Air Pegasus 27 - Womens Running Shoes - for Supinators (personally, I underpronate, and I am flat footed, go figure!)
I am a runner mom, I log decent milage pushing a Bob Stroller - Double. I trained and finished 2011 National Capital Marathon in Ottawa with this shoes.
Fit: roomy on the toes (see flat footed) , lace can adjust tension.
Cushioning: The most you can get get, although (Asics -Nimbus) feels more cushy, but this one fits better (for me), so it feels more snug, I strike my foot better, I run better.
Cute Factor: Definitely! The pink trim is stuble, yet very nice, distinguish you from the sweaty opposite sex.
Price Value: GREAT! To run without shin splints, and any additional visit to the doctor, it is a decent piece of equipment. Plus, it finished the marathon even on a very rainy day.
I am planning to run on the same shoes for the 2012 Marathon.
Unfortunately, after logging 300K or 2 years, cushioning is done on this shoes. It still look great for corner store walks, but not on your long runs. Push it for run, and your ankles and tendons will pay. You might as well run barefoot if you can, than running on a shoe with busted cushioning.
NOTE: know what type of runner you are before buying that nice looking shoe. Go to the nearest running room for a free assessment. How your heel strike , your foot motion as you run determine the type of shoe you need to buy and you can have lots of options.
Overall, this shoe has great cushioning, decent fit, stylish, and good price point.
