Flopping noise?Overall this shoes fits and performs very well. Both shoes have now developed a flopping noise coming from the heel area. This also happened to my Epic Reacts and were replaced.

Running Ref, and I love themI'm tough on shoes, and my feet, especially when it comes to refereeing basket ball.
I'm a big Nike fan when it comes to on your feet cushioning, and as I get older I need more cushioning.
I had primarily been an Air/ Zoom Air wearer, as these shoes all gave me what I was looking for, but I've been looking to go lighter and more durable lately.
Tried the Odyssey React this weekend during a tournament, 6 games over two days.
I have not had any shoes that felt more comfortable and allowed me to run continuously throughout the weekend. Very impressed with how they held up.
Did not need to ice nearly as much as normal afterward, and body feels pretty good today as well.
Shoes are light and springy, and the mesh forefoot held up well. Bought a half size up as I have had to with other Flyknit products, so not a concern.
Will definitely purchase a couple of pairs for the season.

PRETTY SOFTFits like a glove (10.5). I only have 25 miles on these, but so far 1) the midsole feels pretty soft. I figure I've run on 35-40 pairs(?) of shoes of all brands (running 25 yrs.) and these are the softest shoe yet. Maybe the midsole could be firmed up a little. I'm 145lbs., and on level surfaces or uphills the cushioning is fine, but running downhill on pavement the midsole seems to compress quite a bit. Not sure how well this shoe would work well for heavier runners or runners who like firmer cushioning. 2) The fit is superb with the inner sleeve - perfect fit for my feet, like they were molded for me, could not get a better fit. 3) They breathe pretty well, but maybe not quite as well as shoes with a full mesh forefoot or the new Nike Pegasus 35. 4) Overall these are pretty good shoes so far.

Most Uncomfortable Shoes EverBought these shoes after reading other reviews how good these were. The shoes looked nice when arrived. When I wore these on my trip to new york, I had rashes in my feet after 3-4 hours of roaming around Manhattan and the pain was unbearable. If you have slightly wide feet, don't buy these. Though the length was perfect, shoes are too narrow.

Not for forefoot or midfoot runnersThis is a great looking (triple black) shoe and has a snug as designed fit. Excellent for walking and the gym. For running, after 2 runs and 10 miles, my back is killing me. There just isn't much of any flex in the midsole and the forefoot padding is hard and not adequate. For a heal striker, they may do ok at short distances. They are an ounce lighter (9.6 oz size 12 men's) than Brooks Launch but as a runner, they just don't compare. Like I said, this is a great shoe. I just don't feel it's much of a running shoe, unfortunately.
