            I purchased these shoes for my daughter. She has to wear black shoes for work. She picked these out, they didn't have her size in the store. The associate helped us order them online and had them shipped to our house. My daughter loves them they are very comfortable for work and play.

              This shoe fits me foot better than other shoes twice the price. I'm ok with getting shoes priced at this price more often than struggling to get comfortable with other more pricey shoes others say I should be wearing.

                  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. :)
