just to let everyone know that the NIKE Vapour fly Racing shoe is now out on sale and is priced @ £45.00 (or cheaper) They are a great shoe and weigh 180g there are very comfortable and have worn them in my first race yesterday. They feel very comfortable with a extremely good tread> Like the may fly they have upto 400k instead of the 100k. Well done Nike

Fantastic shoe. I weigh 12st10lb and the cushioning is excellent. A really quick shoe at a very fair price.

I've had mine exactly 1 month, I'm 13st and find them more cushioned than my Ekiden/Spectrum +, nice grip as well.

I did do the first 4 miles of Sale 10 in them and they felt good but I didn't, so pulled up, haven't raced since (illness not injury).

Second run in them was a 14 miler and experienced no problems, would consider a marathon in them, giving them a whirl at Trafford 10k this Sunday.

Yep I picked up a pair too. They are different to the Mayfly (more cushioned and protects the foot better all around). I'm yet to use them in a race, but due to more life in them, I have used them on a few training runs already.

Great light weight race shoe for the neutral runner, if your light you could get away with a marathon in them and only £19.99 at

May be a stupid question, BUT....what is the sizing like?

I always run in Adidas but maybe fancy a pair of these

I have some Nike Free's which I just use for general walking around in, does anyone know if the sizing in the same?

I've got NIke Free 5.0's and they're a 9.5 my Vapors are 10's but I'd think I'd've been better with a 9.5.

Last year I ran my marathon pb in my Vapors with no problems although I was a a trim 12 stone then.

Nike shoe sizes are a good fit.

The Nike Free size will be give you the same fit, Just like Marshallini he saying he wished he brought the 9.5 in a Vapor
