Ita about Nike.....I have a narrow foot & I never can find a good fit. I just found out about Hoka One One.....& love their sneakers for trail walking & crossfit.

I don't love them, but they're one of the few brands that fit my orthotics without having to be being ripped apart

I also use orthotics, but for me the best shoes with them are Sketchers.

I haven't been through the entire thread yet. However, I noticed the decline in Nike products. I used to buy their slide-type sandals and they would last for years. When a pair I had finally wore out, I recently bought another Nike pair. Within 3 months, they fell apart.

At this point, I refuse to buy any Nike products. It's one thing if they were cheaply priced then I wouldn't complain about them falling apart. When they cost what they do, it just adds insult to injury.

My mother has lamented Skechers discontinuing their shape-ups. My birthday gift for her this year is a pair of the Nike Shox TL that they've been so kind to re-release.

Idk, I haven't had any issues with mine. The pair I wear the most is going on their 3rd year and I can now tell i need to retire them. I wore them to the gym mostly.
I do prefer them to my UA shoes.

I know a few people that, while they can't quantify any "defects", have complained about either product discontinuation of the next-to-most recent version of Nike Free (we hit the jackpot at TJ Maxx, though) or the soles now being so firm they have nearly no flex in them.

My wife has a test she does with any pair of sneakers she's planning on buying: holds each end of the sneaker in each palm and squeezes, trying to see how stiff the sole is, or how forgiving. If it's still as a board, she puts it back, even if she loves the design.

$30 shoes with $100 of marketing dollars and profits. Nuff said.
