Problems with Air Max Breathe
 
Just a disclaimer -- a review of any shoe is in the eye of the beholder, but this is truly the worst shoe I have ever put on my foot.

The sideways stability is downright awful. I have had no isseus with the vapor 9, cb 4.3 or any older nike models, but these shoes have the support of a wet paper bag.

I have also worn a hole in the toe after about 10 sets, which I have never done to any shoe before.

Not only that its not even that light to make up for all the downsides. I can provide pictures of the hole if anyone cares. Unfortunately I get no voucher because I used them to get the shoes in the first place.

Very dissapointing

How did you wear a hole into the sole within 10 sets? O_O The Air Max Breathes feel fine and comfortable to me.

I'm just curious, is the upper material basically a stiffed up version of the star cages they used on the Free Run 3s?

Let us see the hole.
I saw air max at my local store but I was a little doubtful about the quality...

I agree doesnt look to high quality

That's interesting. Can you post a picture... it seems kind of odd to put a hole in a shoe after only 10 sets. That's good they come with a 6 month guarantee except in your case unfortunately.

plus some sore feet/ankles

Pic not working, pls repost.

rafafan20 01-22-2013 07:32 PM

working now?

NJ1 01-22-2013 07:56 PM

Yes, thanks.

Wow, I always put a hole in the toe even with 3.3s and B7s so there's no way I'll consider something as light duty as these new breathe's.

rafafan20 01-22-2013 07:59 PM

I might give the lotto raptors a try. Very disappointed with Nike in this case, I hope they will replace them with a pair of 4.3 because I think this is unacceptable.

Wow................

ellipticality_224 01-24-2013 12:26 PM

I used to do that to the side of the B6s in two matches, that adituff on the inside of the shoe wore through too quickly, and on top of that it hung out over the court and was not protected like the b7s and 3.3s. Frustrating isnt it?

"Doc, it hurts when I do THIS!" Doctor: "Don't do that."
Drag toe, get hole. Don't drag toe.

rafafan20 01-24-2013 01:42 PM

I don't drag my toe, it happened from sliding on hardcourt I slipped look down and it created a hole.
