Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lumpy and Noisy I'm heading to HD right now to talk about my recent installation. The Nike padding is lumpy feeling. In one spot in a traffic area, there is a hard lump which feels like a rock under a shoe. The installer came back, pulled up the carpet, and showed me the firm, dime sized, full thickness piece he removed, which was hard as a rock. Much to my surprise, there is still a lump. Not sure if he removed a different lump or what. Also, in a prominent living room spot is a place which croaks like a frog. I gave it a week hoping it would resolve but it's still very loud. I can squeak it 10 times and there's no change in the sound. There are smaller squeak spots elsewhere. Overall, it feels uneven and slightly lumpy. I'm not very happy with it...maybe I got a bad roll(?) April 8, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Having to replace after 1 year I had this padding installed at a rental house almost a year ago to this day. I went to view the house yesterday as the tenant is moving out and found that the padding has held up poorly. It literally feels like you are walking on concrete in the living room and more traveled parts of the house. The less used areas still feel cushy. The worst part is that the carpet is wearing faster since there is no cushioning to keep it from getting smashed by the concrete when you are walking. I would recommend choosing another padding as this one had a very short lifespan. The house only had two people living in it. July 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality carpet, but want better delivery options. The carpet is of very good quality. I installed carpet in the 70's and 80's professionally, and the backing is a good bit more brittle than I remember it. The backing seems like a synthetic composite rather than the old fashioned (and tougher/more pliable) jute, but overall it installed well, looks just, is just like the sample, and feels great. My family is thrilled. However the obligation of picking it up and hauling it to my house myself was onerous. I would have paid ~$100 to have it brought the 9 miles from the local Home Depot to my home. HD should re-think the delivery options. April 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful They did a fabulous job of installing but arriving after 6PM and finished almost 9 PM was too late at night. I wish they would have left me some of the left over pieces. Bottom line is they did a great job and they were fast. Carpet looks so good. I am very happy. October 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent pad We purchased this pad a year ago to go under new carpet. I had it laid by a professional installer who lightly glued the center portions and tacked it to the parameter tack strip. I don't know if they have changed the manufacturing components since then, but it is noiseless and comfortable to walk on. I would not be looking at replacing it now except that we had a massive flood from the unit above forcing us to replace one small section of the pad due to mousture. December 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy with the nike pad I just had this installed with sof tspring carpet. It's not soft or cushioning to walk on. I spent a lot of money for this carpet and I'm very disappointed in the pad. April 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing & super soft! I have had this pad in my house for six months. I waited to review so I could give a more accurate review. I love his carpet pad. I have no creaking, croaking or other sounds. My carpet is soft and I lay on the floor to watch tv and play video games all the time. I did purchase very nice carpet also so I am not sure if that makes a difference, but I am telling you this stuff is amazing. I can walk barefoot and it springy and fluffy like. I have four teenagers and this carpet pad is soft and is great! I would absolutely purchase it again! July 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cracks under your feet We purchased new carpet and padding about a year ago. This padding seemed like a fair deal at the time. Since the initial installation we have heard a crackling noise. I thought this would go away after some time but unfortunately I think it has only become worse. I would not recommend this product and am disappointed that we had purchased it. February 18, 2014
