Going by Nike brand, I was a bit disappointed wearing these shoes. They just do not fit right. They run a size small so I would suggest going up a size if you really want them to fit comfortably. I like the overall look of these shoes with fancy bright color. They come with spokes to give a good grip on ground which makes it easy to run. The best feature of these would be it comes with velcro strap to adjust shoe fitting.

I love this shoe from Nike! The colors are great! The fit is perfect. The traction is just right. They are the lightest shoe I’ve ever worn! I like the strap that goes over the shoe laces to keep the laces from interfering with my pole vaulting. I wish they made this shoe in an everyday casual shoe, because I don’t want to take it off!
Great casual, stylish shoe - Feb 07, 2022
For starters, these shoes are obviously for a very specific purpose - they'll be worn for short periods of time during practice or competition, and that's about it. Because of that, I had fairly low expectations when it came to comfort, build quality, and even in how event-specific these shoes would really be. These really exceeded my expectations in all of those areas. They're incredibly well built - high quality materials, bulletproof construction, and a great, snug fit. They fit true to size - I have average width 10.5 feet and these were perfect. I think the fit was enhanced by the velcro strap that goes across the top of your foot - it lets you get these to the perfect level of tightness without having to screw around with the laces too much. The shoe is also clearly designed for pole vaulting - from the rigidity of the sole to the placement of the spikes and the cushioning on the shoe. It makes me think these would last about as long as you'd like, especially given the limited usage. It's a minor gripe, but I wish the tool that you use to screw in the spikes was magnetic inside. The spikes are flattened on two sides so that the tool can get ahold of them, but if you don't line them up right then they fall out more easily than I'd like. If you're someone that would be taking the spikes on and off a lot then it could get annoying. Overall, no real complaints with these - 5 out of 5!
