Fit

Nike Zoom Fly 3
Confused about the Nike Zoom Fly 4
I had the Zoom Fly 3 and loved it for a bit (as it was my second running shoe) but I am shocked they didn’t do more to update the 4. The 3 was marketed as the speed/workout trainer to complement the Vaporfly. So if you had something like the Infinity React for easy days, the Vaporfly for race day, the 3 would fit in between for speed sessions.

Nike ZoomX Invincible Run Conclusion. ROBBE: Nike is going to pull every golden egg out of that ZoomX goose, and I have no qualms about the existence of the Nike ZoomX Invincible. It’s a pretty good shoe that will provide a ton of comfort over long-haul mileage

Comfort

Nike Zoom Fly 3
- Nike Zoom Fly 3: look great and are fast, but heel narrow and prone to instability/ankle roll. Plus, think the carbon plate limited foot flex which seemed to aggravate PF foot pain.

Weight

I had the zoom fly 3 for a little bit and returned them to Nike after trying them out for a bit. While they were pretty responsive they felt really bottom-heavy. I also have a pair of next %- and if you’re a newer runner probably wouldn’t want these to train in, most people reserve them for special runs or races.
Nike ZoomX Invincible
Asics Novablast 2
You kinda get a similar experience to the ZoomX Invincible, but with less bulk and a bit less softness and cushion. In turn, it is $50 cheaper, less clunky, more nimble, and probably a bit better picking up the pace. It is the same weight for a bit less cushioned of a shoe in the same size, but it comes out a little lighter since the Nova 2 runs a half size large. The Invincible is also way more capable of picking up the pace than it should be at that bulkiness.

Brooks Aurora BL First Impressions and Comparisons to the Nike ZoomX Invincible
I personally think that's a good thing though as the Invincible is a bit too soft and squishy to go fast in it. The rocker of the Invincible doesn't help roll the foot effectively while the Glide Roll rocker of the Aurora BL gives quick turnover, combined with the DNA loft v3 foam, makes the run feel effortless. The upper in Aurora BL is also a lot more breathable than the upper in the Invincible even though Nike uses Flyknit on the shoe. Overall, the Nike ZoomX Invincible is a fun shoe to try but it's quite clunky for daily training and best used for easy/recovery pace while the Brooks Aurora BL is more like an all-rounder.

NIKE INVINCIBLE REVIEW over priced? BEST in CLASS? My 100% Honest Review!
If you have a particularly wider foot, there are people out there, not me, but there are people out there that have been suffering with blisters on the front of their shoe, but they found when they have taken these markings off here. Just with like a hair dryer or something warm, it up melt the glue, pull it off that that's gone away: [, Music, ]! So guys to conclude: is this going to rotation? Should you be buying this shoe for me very much going to my rotation?

Nike ZoomX Invincible
Once I started running they still felt incredibly firm, but it does feel like they're absorbing impact. It wasn't harsh on my foot or legs.

How Long Does A Nike Zoom Fly Last?
n uneven surfaces, the Zoom Fly 3 shows some instability that increases with speed. There is no side protection to speak of so ankle injuries are a real threat when running on rough surfaces such as trails.
