Nike ZoomX Invincible Run Performance Review » Believe in the Run
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

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.

Weight

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.

Buy the Vaporfly; don't waste your money on this shoe
I cannot say enough bad things about this shoe. I bought them thinking if the Vaporfly Next% is incredible, Alpha will be even better. Not even close. I could tell they were bad after 1/4 mile. They did not improve over the rest of the 20 miler. Problems include:
1) Noticeable weight difference (I ...

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 Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% Review (2022): Should You Get It?
Conclusion Like with anything extreme, the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% can divide runners. Nonetheless, it’s an outstanding shoe with grand ambitions (and some of them already fulfilled). Its high stack height, low drop, carbon plate, and ultra-lightweight design make it an elite model for seasoned runners looking for a new record at the half or full marathon

Design

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.

’On the run, this feels exciting. Like previous models, the shape of the shoe propels you forward and I found running at tempo pace easier than normal; the shoe feels more lively and at home when the pace increases. So much so, in fact, that it was a matter of consciously holding myself back in the warmup and cool-down miles
