Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Stands out for sporting Nike Shox 4-column heel support. Also combines stable leather and synthetic materials and thick foot bed padding for optimal running support.
Provides enough arch support. Many buyers describe this pair as comfortable.
The insole of the Shox NZ’s is soft and accommodating, but without being to padded, which can cause the foot to feel like it’s sunken. The insole keeps your foot stable, supporting it with a plush softness that doesn’t get in the way of running. This delicate balance is hard to find.

What reviewers didn't like

Our testers found these shoes to be somewhat stiff until you break them in, and they run narrow in size.
Some users do not like that Nike Shox NZ needs to be broken-in. Few critics have expressed disappointment about the narrow width.
A tab on the back of the shoe would be appreciated, as this would help make putting the shoes on just a little easier.
