I use these shoes for walking. I am a sixty-two year old woman who walks 5-7 miles daily, sometimes a little more and occasionally a little less (if my feet are aching). I tend to get a few more aches and pains than when I was younger and sometimes I get aches and pains in my feet, probably because I walk so much. I have had a few broken bones in my feet and wrists, but no really severe broken bones, so I am not sure if that is a contributing factor, or just that I am getting older and walk so much. Some mornings I do wake up with stiffness in my hands, so I may have some minor arthritis due to having had broken bones in the past. I had been wearing the Merrell Moab shoes, which worked well for a while, though they were heavy. Then, I got a knot on the bottom of my foot in the arch area and also a pain on the top of my foot down the left side. I decided to go back to a lighter pair of shoes. In the past I had worn some very lightweight Merrell running shoes which were very comfortable, but I did tend to get a callous area on the outer edge of one of my feet on the side where my little toe is. I went to Dick's and saw the Nike Flyknit 4.0 shoes and tried them on and instantly loved them. The knit material on the top of the shoe hugs and conforms to your foot giving support but is not at all constrictive. Nowhere does the shoe rub against the skin so it is a shoe that is not blister causing. The bottom of the shoe is very flexible and bends with your foot but also has very good arch support, or does for my foot anyway. I bought the pair at Dick's and paid $20.00 more for them than these shoes cost. They relieved my foot pain instantly when I started wearing them. After walking about 20 miles in the pair I got from Dick's Sporting Goods, I ordered these from Amazon.com and saved myself $20.00. I figured it would be good to have two pairs. They are so lightweight. It is amazing how much more energy that I have since switching back to a light-weight pair of shoes. I think my foot really benefits from the more flexible sole and my balance also feels better with the lower heel of the shoe. I find that as I am getting older my balance is not as good as my younger years and a lower heeled shoe makes me feel more stable with a better center of balance. So far, these shoes are working great for me. Hope they continue to work well. Will need to look for a warmer version for winter wear though, because the knit material I do not think will be warm enough for winter wear.

These are my second pair of the newest version of the Nike Free line. When I purchased my first pair I did so begrudgingly because I really liked by Nike Free 3.0's. I was looking for the Flyknit 3.0's but the store I bought them at were out. I am glad they were because after wearing my first Flyknit 4.0's for about 300 miles, I can say these are better (for me) than the last version of the 3.0's were.

I am a distance runner and training for a marathon, so I put 50-60 miles on these shoes a week. Although I said in my initial rating that these shoes fit "as expected" that is only because I have worn them before. If you have worn other shoes, get a half size larger, because they do run small. However, they have a generous toe box, in fact when you first put them on and look down they might look like clown shoes to you. They aren't that extra, but if you need that extra toe box room they are great. The rest of the shoe is snug, as it should be with a shoe like this. These shoes are for neutral runners and so if you need a lot of support, these are not for you.

If you are looking for style points, these are bright. I like the color combo. I'm ordering another pair soon for my marathon.

These shoes were fantabulous!!!! They are very comfortable for flat feet and fit my foot like a glove. They feel like your foot is in a sock. These shoes seriously contours to your feet..FYI.. I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS, BUT THIS WAS AN EXCEPTION

Aside from the bold color being fabulous, I love the feel and performance of these Nike running shoes! I prefer this knit construction over my old New Balance/Vibrams. They give just enough stretch to conform to your foot and not slip off the heel, but it feels like you're not wearing much at all. The sense of freedom is amazing.

I read that they run a tad small, so I went for a 7.5 instead of my usual 7 and they are perfect for me.

If you require orthotics or lots of ankle support, then I'd avoid them. But if you have good form and have built up your ankle strength then these are truly wonderful. It's like a barefoot running experience, but in a shoe.

I don't usually write reviews, but I really love this Nike shoes.
If not for somewhat smaller size, I would have rated it 5 star.
I bought a pair of the same shoes while I was in Paris because the walking shoes I was wearing were not comfortable. I did not expect anything better from the Nike Free Flynit 4.0. I bought it because I like the purple color and the style. To my surprise, It is very comfortable and it reduced the pain in my knees. It made me walk properly and it's so light; like walking on air. It made my walking in the streets of Paris so enjoyable. Upon return to the U.S., I searched for and buy a black pair of the same model, same size. I just don't understand why they fit tighter than the pair I bought in Paris. However, I still like it very much for 2 main reasons: reduced pain in my knees and made me walk properly.

The back portion injured my Achilles tendon. It rubs against the back of your ankle and through one day of wearing them I was in so much pain. I will definitely be returning them.

I love these shoes! Knowing that Nike shoes run small, I ordered a size 9 even though I normally wear size 8. They're SO comfortable and perfect for running and working out. I'm so pleased with my purchase!

I decided on these particular shoes based on the reviews. I actually received them today so I have only been wearing them for a few hours but I'm very happy. They are very supportive and lightweight. I have knee and ankle issues (Old sports injury and from running) so the right shoe is extremely important to me. So far, they feel well balanced. I can't wait to take them out for a jog to really test them out. But I do have to say, thanks to all of you for taking the time out to write reviews. I always come to Amazon before purchasing anything even if it's not on amazon just because I know I'll fins the best reviews!

Since I switched from gel cushioned running shoes to Free Flyknit, I haven't had any problems with my knees or legs. They are so light! It's like running barefoot. Maybe all that cushion on your heal isn't good for you. I feel like I'm running naturally now. My speed has increased, and I enjoy running.

After searching for a running shoe that was a perfect match for me I definitely found it. I'm in love with these running shoes. I've only had them 3 days and I can stop looking at them and wearing them. At first I thought they were too small but now I know that's how they are supposed to fit..snug and tight since the material is some sort of stretch knit. It pretty much molds to your foot like a durable sock. They are super comfortable and look really good. I'm thinking of getting another pair in another color. These shoes make me want to work out more.
