Video reviews and unboxing
- The High Abrasion rubber and the Foam rubber along with the specifically shaped lugs placed at strategic locations on the outsole give an optimal combination of excellent traction, high resistance to abrasion and enhanced flexibility. These technologies, also being very durable, make sure the shoe keeps on performing very well for much longer durations of time.
- In the midsole, the LunarIon foam and the full-length Carbon Infused Nylon plate maintain an environment of optimal cushioning and efficient responsiveness for the runner. The material is soft and it provides the needed support underfoot.
- The Engineered Mesh with perforations at strategic locations ensures a fully ventilated environment inside the shoe for the runner. It also provides a snug and secure fit with the help of Dynamic Flywire technology.
- The Nike Zoom Fly boasts the feature of Internal Heel Counter for keeping the user’s heel in its proper position while running. This saves the runner from uncomfortable sliding or rubbing of feet against the shoe.
The Nike Zoom Fly is most suitable for neutral runners with feet that are neither too wide nor too narrow since the shoe comes in the standard medium width of D for men and B for women, respectively. The shoe has a standard running length and for most individuals, it fits true to size.
The heel part of the Nike Zoom Fly’s outsole uses a rubber compound that is highly resistant to abrasion. Its goal is to protect the foam midsole from the damaging nature of the roads. It also doles out surface traction, which is an essential aspect of running shoes.
Foam rubber is placed in the forefoot section of the external pad. This material has a spongy construction which allows it to provide an extra spring to each step. It is flexible and traction-ready, as well.
The shoe is further improved by a system of patterns at specific locations on the outsole for optimal performance and a firm grip on dry and wet surfaces.
Lunarlon is the primary technology that’s used in the Nike Zoom Fly. This full-length cushioning system is comprised of a carrier foam that cradles a soft material in its center. The purpose of the former is to provide long-lasting structure and volume to the underfoot experience while the latter is tasked with ensuring a responsive and highly energized performance.
A carbon-infused nylon plate is implanted into the entire length of the foam. This add-on has the purpose of acting as a propelling component that energizes the foot as it lifts off the ground. It bends with the foot then springs back into place during the end of the motion, ensuring a burst of propulsion that benefits the action.
An insole is placed on top of the primary cushioning unit. This extra layer is made to provide additional support to the underside of the foot. It can be removed or replaced with a new one.
A one-piece engineered mesh is used for the upper unit of the Nike Zoom Fly. This technology resembles traditional cloth, and it has the same qualities, as well. It is lightweight and flexible, so it is able to provide a hug that is akin to wearing a sock. Also, it is form-accommodating and breathable, so it allows the foot to stay relaxed and dry during the running session.
An internal heel counter graces the back portion of this running shoe. This feature is meant to hold the foot in place, saving it from quivering at any point of the performance. It also makes sure to prevent the foot from exiting the interior chamber unexpectedly, thereby improving confidence and a well-realized heel-to-toe transition.
A traditional lacing system with semi-flat laces and discreet eyelets permits the wearer to manipulate the level of security for the foot, thereby acquiring a customized in-shoe wrap.
The Dynamic Flywire technology is comprised of cables that poke out of the façade’s midfoot section. These wires connect to the shoelaces, adjusting in tandem with the tightening or loosening of the fit. Their coverage of the midfoot section ensures a snug embrace that is supportive of the delicate arch.
The lightly padded tongue and collar are elements that cushion the instep, the ankles, and the Achilles tendon. Having an upper that offers comfort may enhance the performance, especially when tackling extended runs and contests.
