Even wide is too narrow

      Comments about NIKE Men's Downshifter 5 Running Shoes:

      I run often and wanted a replacement pair for my current shoes. I normally order a half size bigger and wide. When I tried these on, I could feel these were not wide enough. Physically holding these up to my old pair, I could see the difference was significant. In short, go to a store and try on because the size varies.

              I got these for my 12 year old. He was wearing and 8 1/2 Nike and when we got these had to go to a 10 so I think these may run small. But none the less he likes them and said they fit well so for the price and quality I think we got a good shoe for an active 12 year old. :)

                This shoes are very light and comfortable.
                I could not get the suitable size at store and store helper told me that he could order a suitable one online for me. I even got free shipping and 25% off discount for it.
                I received it after 3 days. The size is exact my size.
                This is really great, good product and great service.
