Not worth the hypePros: Lightweight, very aesthetically pleasing, nice and flat tongue, responsive
Cons: Price, runs narrow and small
I fell into the hype of this shoe and bought it for my upcoming marathon this spring. I wear a size 7 for all my shoes, but when I ordered a size 7 for this shoe, they were way too small and it was painful to run in because of that. Additionally, the shoes were narrow (I have a medium width foot) and wearing these felt weird because I felt like part of my foot was not being supported. I had high expectations of this shoe, as it is the sister of the Nike 4%, however, when I ran in these I did not feel anything special. I felt as if I were just wearing typical running shoes, I did not feel this shoe made me faster.
Overall, if you have feet that are on the narrower side, and don't mind the price as well as the very average quality, then I recommend these. If you are hesitant about these, definitely research other shoes before making your choice. I will be returning these.

good shoesIn a lot of ways like these better than the 4%. They have more support and overall better fit. However, they are very painful to break in, lots of blisters. Also they aren't super durable. You can expect to get about 200 miles out of them but they last miles will probably be a little sketchy. Will buy another pair for speed work, they are very fun to run in.

Great racing shoeI am definitely running faster wearing the Zoom Fly. I just ran the Berlin marathon and I felt great running in these shoes. The first time I didn't have toe pain when i finished the marathon. Bought two pairs and cannot wait to buy the Vapor Fly.

DisappointedI agree with some of the other reviewers. These shoes are not true to size and very narrow. Very dissatisfied, as I’ve been wanting this shoe for a month now. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Outdoor RunningI was never impressed with Nike's running shoes, but I tried these on because a friend recommended them and the cushion is awesome. I have wide feet and Nike's shoes are usually too narrow for me, but my feet feel fully supported. I run outdoors or a track and these have been great. I did notice they're starting to wear already because I wear them when i'm on my feet for most of the day as well. Looking to get a second pair. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
