The Zoom Fly echoes the features of the Vaporfly Elite, which was the shoe that Nike tailored to each individual athlete who took part in the official sub-two attempt.
The Zoom Fly is designed with a carbon-infused nylon plate that is finely tuned to accommodate varying flex and mass for enhanced comfort and feel. Utilised alongside the core Lunarlon foam, this full-length plate strikes the balance between cushioning and stiffness for greater running efficiency.
Meanwhile, with a lightweight foam rubber in the forefoot and a high-abrasion rubber in the heel, the outsole has optimal placement for enhanced traction, durability and efficiency. While not as tapered as something like the Vaporfly 4%, the Zoom Fly still ffers a truly unique feel that gives you a race-day feeling underfoot and versatility for daily training, too.
Never before have I been impressed enough by a running shoe to write a review, but having got so many great runs out of two pairs (so far!) it seems wrong not to.\n\nI use these only for longer runs > 16 km where I'm going to a significant amount at tempo pace or higher. For these runs, the Zoom Flys work incredibly well and feel comfortable, efficient, and light.\n\nThe flymesh upper is very comfortable on my slightly wider than average feet, and I really think Nike have nailed the upper in many recent models.\n\nThe stiff midsole is not to everybody's taste but for me it definitely works and I really like the responsiveness and the way it encourages you to transfer weight forwards. A personal plus for me is that there is something about the way the mid-sole cushions the foot that leaves my feet in better condition after these types of runs than just about anything else. \n\nCompared to the 4%, which I also own, the ride is firmer, but the overall geometry and weight feels very similar. The wear is wildly better in the Zoom Flys, however. In these I can happily get 700 km and could probably squeeze out a bit more, which is good enough for me. 4%s are a different story - with all the exposed foam on the sole, I am doubtful they will get to 200 km. Those are strictly for race day only. \n\nBottom line: genuinely innovative shoe and well worth the money
Love these shoes for anything 10 miles or less. I've set a 10K PR in them already. Great lightweight shoe with comfort. I do prefer the Epic Reacts for longer distances but use these for any run under 9 miles. Highly recommend for any speed workouts.
