Overall, the Nike Zoom Fly 3 receives mixed reviews. Some runners find it to be a great shoe for speed work and long runs, while others find it too stiff and bottom-heavy. The carbon plate is a point of contention, with some recommending it only for race day and others using it as a daily trainer. The React foam is praised for its durability, but some wish it had ZoomX instead. The Endorphin Speed is often compared to the Zoom Fly 3, with some recommending it as a replacement. The Glideride is also mentioned as a great option for long runs. Overall, the Zoom Fly 3 is seen as a solid shoe in the Nike lineup, but not necessarily the top choice for all runners.
