Who should NOT buy it

At 8.9 oz, the VaporMax Flyknit is way lighter than the average daily trainer. Majority of the testers agree that it barely has any weight, they forgot about it on the run.
All-around comfort: Plush, breathable, and flexible
The midsole of the shoe is not only very cushy. It's also very pliable, allowing freedom of movement.
It's coupled with the shoe's soft and stretchy upper, which a number of runners describe as "cloud-like." What's more is it's light and airy.
