     I am going to do my first review on Nike's Women's Air Sky Raider II

Well-cushioned performance is a must for any runner and the Nike Air Skyraider II Ladies Running Shoe meets your demands with the ultimate in cushioning and support with forefoot flex grooves for a more efficient, natural range of motion as you go the distance.
  • Mesh and synthetic leather upper with overlays for a secure and breathable fit
  • Phylon midsole with crashpad for cushioning, shock absorption and a smooth transition
  • Air-Sole unit at heel for superior cushioning and impact protection
  • Midfoot plastic shank for additional support
  • Multiple types of rubber and traction patterns for a smooth, sure-footed stride
I purchased these shoes at Olympia over the summer. I am on the never ending quest for the perfect pair of sneakers!! I suffered from Plantar Facitiis in both feet. I had Cryo-surgery in my right in the summer of 2008. In Dec. 09, I had Plantar Facitial release surgery on my left foot. My doctor suggested that I wear sneakers with an orthotic for the most comfortable footwear. So my quest began...You can not imagine the amount of sneakers that I have purchased......Some of them I have only worn for a couple of hours.
Until I purchased the Nike Sky Raider IIs.
   The minute I put these on, I was in love...the arch in the shoe hit the arch of my foot perfectly. I walked around a little bit in the store and knew that I had to have them. I was so excited about them that I couldn't stop talking about how impressed I was with them to the sales girl! She must have been so happy for me because she ended up giving me a 20% discount on them!!
  I became so obsessed with these shoes that I started to tell everyone how awesome they were!! I even told my mother who also has the same foot problems that I do!!!!
 The real test was friday when I wore these to work....I had the Nike Ladies Air  Skyraider II on all day, up and down stairs, and had no foot pain what so ever!!!!
  I purchased the white/pink/silver ones. They are also available in dark grey/silver/white and metallic platinum/white/lime. I did contact Nike to find out where I might be able to purchase the other colors. Customer service contacted me back within 24 hours with the name of the website where I can purchase the other colors. That website is http://www.altrec.com/nike/womens-air-skyraider-2 in case anyone is interested in these shoes!!!
