The Air Zoom Fly 2 has a standard running shoe length. This shoe fits well to those runners with medium foot measurements. It can also give a nice fit to narrow footed runners since the heel and midfoot is a bit narrow than the usual. The fit and sizing of this shoe were not changed and are identical to its original version.
The outsole unit of this Nike running shoe uses the BRS 1000 outsole technology. The textured waffle-patterned allows impressive traction on different surfaces. It also adds durability to the shoe’s outsole. The carbon rubber also wraps the shoe’s heel area, giving additional protection especially to high-wear areas.
The Nike Air Zoom Fly 2 features the combining power of the Cushlon foams and Compression-molded Phylon. These are combined together to deliver a dual-density cushioning. It gives a lightweight, plush, and resilient cushioning.
It also uses the brand’s notable Air Zoom that consists of discreet pressurized air pockets. These air pockets naturally flex while running, giving an enhanced responsive cushioning.
The upper uses a lightweight mesh that delivers impressive breathability. It keeps the foot well-ventilated throughout the run without adding weight to the shoe’s overall construction. The seamless upper was engineered to provide a smooth environment for the foot, reducing blisters and irritation. Lastly, the bonded overlays were designed smoothly for a lightweight and comfortable fit.
