Hi, I’m Matt and I’ve been running for about 4 years doing track, cross country, and road races. I typically run about 50 miles a week in the summer and during the racing season, I cut down to 20 to 30 miles a week. The 800m is my favorite event and is the one you’ll see me racing the most but I also race the 1600m occasionally. During the cross country season, I’ll be doing 5ks on trails or roads. I’ve never ran a race longer than a 5k but my longest long run is 13.26 miles! I’ve put a countless amount of miles on my shoes and you can count on me to give a good review!

Updates to Nike Flex Fury
- The Nike Flex Fury comes with a reliable traction and durable outsole. It is made possible through the high abrasion rubbers placed in high wear areas and the flex groves that also gives flexibility.
- The dual-density foam comprises the midsole of the Flex Fury. The foam is enough to deliver the right amount of cushioning and underfoot protection while running on the road.
Nike Flex Fury size and fit
The Nike Flex Fury has a standard running shoe length. It uses the regular measurements when it comes to the sizing for men and women version. The available width for both genders is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet.
The outsole of the Nike Flex Fury is mainly a combination of high abrasion rubber for key wear areas and some blown rubber for excellent grip. The pressure-mapped Nike Flex sole and the rubber pods promote foot flexibility and natural foot movement.
The midsole of the Nike Flex Fury is made of dual-density foam. It is strategically placed to deliver reliable cushioning for a comfortable ride. It also gives added support and flexibility.
The upper is minimally constructed using lightweight mesh layer for excellent shoe breathability and adaptive fit. The seamless construction provides a seamless fit and the roomy toe box accommodates toe splay.
