I LOVE Nike Air Max shoes. They are hands-down the most comfortable tennis shoe I have ever worn. I have several pairs in different colors. I debated long and hard about this pair versus another pair that was white, light blue and black. (I actually ended up purchasing both, as I couldn't decide.) I bought these because my last black pair were my all time favorites and I liked the light blue sole. When I receive them, however, I realized that "dark obsidian" does not mean "black." They are navy blue. It looks kind of weird with the light blue. I'm still keeping them, but I'm quite disappointed in the color. I wore them today and they are just as comfortable as all my other Air Max shoes have been. If you are looking for a dark navy shoe with light blue accents, then this is the shoe for you. Just note that they look very different from the picture.
I ordered these from GoodSports Outdoor. The sneakers were delivered about a week sooner than forecasted using Standard USPS Delivery...a pleasant surprise since these sneakers were backordered at most other retailers. The sneakers were exactly as advertised; brand new, still in the Nike shoe box and look exactly as shown in the picture. I'm a neutral pronator and I've worn them for over a week now and they are very comfortable; one of the most comfortable pair of sneakers I've ever owned. I ordered them a size larger than what I'd normally wear since Nike's usually run small...you have to go up half a size to a full size in order for them to fit correctly and not blister your heel due to the top part of the back of the sneaker being angled inward and being more padded than the lower part of the heel. I also put Dr. Scholls Active Series insoles in them in addition to the insoles they came with to give me a little extra arch support and cushioning. Love the color scheme and have...
I love the shoes, except for one problem. The shape of the heel is not like other running shoes. I couldn't easily slide into the shoes. The heel leaned inward. I solved the problem by getting an extended shoe horn.
