Convenience is key with the Revolution 6 FlyEase

For background, the Nike FlyEase collection, in general, is dedicated to runners who have limited mobility. It ditches the typical lace-up configuration and makes use of a zipper lockdown system that makes it easy and efficient to wear.

Most testers are happy with this design, saying that it's not only simple; it also keeps their feet tucked in place. 

No need to break it in

"Comfortable upon step in" is how runners describe the Nike Revolution 6 FlyEase. It's soft "like pillows;" none of them has reported foot fatigue after miles of test runs.

Those who are on their feet for long hours also attest to this. 

Doesn't cause any drag

It doesn't have a lot of fuss, which is why the majority of the reviewers find it very light and airy.

Reducing waste

The regular Revolution 6 and the FlyEase version both have "Next Nature" in their name, signifying Nike's steps in making it more sustainable. To do this, it's made with 20% recycled materials (calculated by weight).

Will keep you grounded

Can do so much for so little price

This shoe only retails for $65 whereas the average running shoe costs $120. For less than $100, you get a shoe that can double for walking and all-day wear.

A nay for wide feet

The opening of the Revolution 6 FlyEase is a tad narrow for those with broad feet, making it a challenge to put on. For reference, many find it narrower than the previous Revolution 5 FlyEase.

Can't cinch it down

Those with narrow to medium-width feet who prefer a tight fit won't be happy with the shoe's zipper lockdown. Dialing in the fit is not an option with the Nike Revolution 6 FlyEase.

On top of this, there are also reports of the zipper digging into the ankles because it bunches up.
