- Nike offers changes in small amounts in the Winflo 3. The shoe has a new engineered mesh with bigger and more holes in the forefoot for better breathability. It is a bit thicker than before, so durability should also be enhanced.
- Another clear change in the upper is the strategic placement of the Flywire cords to provide better midfoot hold and support. In this version, the cables are not as thick as before to lessen the risks of blisters on top of the foot.
- Lastly, Nike changed the laces in the new version. From tube-like laces, this shoe has a flatter and more textured variety to enable the laces to stay tied for the duration of the run. It is also slightly longer so runners have better options when it comes to the cinch of the shoe.
The Winflo 3 has medium fit from the heel to the forefoot. It has basically the same fit used by Nike in the past model. The heel and midfoot are comfortably snug with a decent forefoot room. Most runners with narrow to medium foot should be able to get their most preferred fit in this shoe. The sizing runs true in the latest version of the Winflo.
The Waffle outsole of the Nike Winflo 3 offers numerous square-shaped figures for enhanced grip on a multitude of surfaces. There are also flex grooves for better flexibility. Nike covers the heel with carbon rubber for durability and blown rubber in the forefoot for added traction.
Nike’s proprietary Cushlon foam, which is a bit softer than average EVA, provides that pillow-like feel in this shoe. Moving through the gait cycle is smooth as the foam runs the entire length of the midsole.
For more heel cushioning and better shock-absorption, an Air Zoom unit is located in the heel. This midsole unit is also available in the Nike Winflo 5 running shoe.
Nike uses a no-sew construction in the upper of the Zoom Winflo 3 to reduce risk of blisters of hot spots. The upper is largely made of engineered mesh with synthetic overlays. Providing rock-solid support and midfoot hold are the Flywire cables that are directly attached to the midsole and coiled around the laces. The tongue and collar are very comfortable while a removable insole enhances cushioning and support.
