Who should not buy the sneaker

Some owners of this Nike shoe found its visual aspect a bit cheap-looking. So, if you want a Nike sneaker at the same price point that would look more well-made, consider the Nike Revolution 5 or the Downshifter 11. Both of these shoes also have a bit more bounce and responsiveness underfoot as they are designed as running shoes.

Nike Wearallday: Comfort all-day

The Nike WearAllDay is packed with details that deliver cushy strides for hours of walking. A good number of happy wearers agree that they can definitely wear the shoe all day. "Total bliss in a sneaker," says one of them.

Some reviewers also say that the sneaker stands up to whatever they have going on, from standing on the feet for up to 10 hours straight to casually walking around the neighborhood, walking the dog, or doing other chores. The shoe can even handle some lighter, moderate workout sessions at the gym.

A few have compared the underfoot experience to floating or walking on a cloud. Someone with arthritis reported that the shoe that didn’t hurt their toes during the walk.

Nike Wearallday cushioning

Feeling good inside the shoe

The in-shoe feel is also made cozy thanks to the following:

  • Padded tongue and collar. The soft cushioning provides added comfort on the ankle and instep.
  • Cushy insole. This element delivers a superb cozy feel, to keep you going day-in or day-out.
  • Pull tab. This detail creates an easy on and off feature, suitable for people with an on-the-go lifestyle.

Clean athletic appeal that's easy to style

As simple as this sneaker looks, the WearAllDay has been a very welcome addition to many people's wardrobes. The shoe is easy to pair with virtually any casual attire, many have shared. It can be dressed up or down.

In addition, the shoe appears to go well with a lot of colors. Thanks to the shoe's really cheap price tag, many people have bought multiple pairs in different colors to mix and match.

Some ladies are also happy that this Nike shoe doesn’t make their feet look super wide.

On the downside, the more discerning sneakerheads thought that Nike could offer better looks even in such a basic affordable shoe. 

Typically narrow Nike shoe

This is not the best option for those with wider feet as the toebox is reported to fit on the narrow side. This is something that's quite common for Nike shoes. But getting half-size larger seems to solve this problem for some.

Light on the foot

The WearAllDay weighs below average on the scale of Nike sneakers: 10 oz (283 g) over the average 13.2 oz (374 g). This rather light construction of the sneaker makes it easy to move in, according to several wearers.

This is actually surprising given the somewhat chunky midsole of the sneaker.

The shoe breathes really well

The mesh fabric on the upper does a very good job of letting the air pass through. An expert shoe reviewer conducted a breathability test by pumping smoke through the shoe's upper and demonstrating how easily it gets released from the shoe.

So, this trainer is sure to keep your feet cool, especially during summer.

Nike Wearallday vs Nike Tanjun

The Nike Wearallday has been compared to another popular Nike release, the Tanjun. Both sneakers come from the budget-friendly price range (both are $65) and are designed quite simply. Another similarity lies in their mesh uppers which provide a lightweight and flexible fit.

However, the Wearallday was added with no-sew skins on the heel and toe box. This welded feature enhances the overall protection and durability without ruining the sneaker's straightforward style.
