Customer Reviews

Comments: Nike Flyknits are gorgeous. I was looking for sneakers online, and my Amazon research-wishlist was reaching 30 pairs when I suddenly came across Nike Flyknit running shoes. And that was it for me. Then I searched all over the web for a couple of weeks trying to find the perfect combo of desired color, shoe size, and good price. The grey ones were sold out across the web, but the grey/pink combo, I found on for $89, which was far less expensive than anywhere else I looked. So my Flyknits arrived yesterday, free and speedy shipping was a plus. I absolutely love them. They fit you like a glove, or a sock for that matter. Great texture, comfortable snugly fit, and they are awesome. I would highly recommend Nike Flyknit.
