Updates to Nike Revolution 3
- The molded foam in the midsole offers the optimal combination of high comfortability and efficient responsiveness. It is responsible for the very popular bouncy feel in the Nike Revolution 3.
- The rubber outsole delivers excellent traction, enhanced flexibility, and maximum durability- a combination all runners desire in their running shoes.
- The ‘mixed mesh material’ of the upper unit feels smooth and silken against the skin. Also, the intelligent placement of perforations allows for a healthy inflow and outflow of air through the mesh material, thereby keeping the user’s foot comfortably cool and dry throughout the run.
Nike Revolution 3 size and fit
The shoe fits true to size. It comes in the standard running length for both genders and the standard medium width of D for men and B for women, respectively. The shoe has a spacious toe-box and is suitable for runners with wide feet as well.
The rubber outsole of the Nike Revolution 3 provides the needed traction on dry and wet surfaces. Also, it is durable and it keeps the shoe performing effectively for longer durations of time. This outsole material is also present in the Revolution 4 running shoe.
The grooves in the forefoot region enhance flexibility and enable the shoe to adjust its shape according to the movements of the foot during the running session.
In its midsole, the shoe utilizes the ‘Molded Foam’ insole for enhanced comfort and higher responsiveness. While the foam provides excellent cushioning to the user, it also aims to return energy to the foot and leg, thereby enabling strong and springy steps.
The ‘Soft Foam Midsole’ further enhances the comfortability underfoot. The foam maintains a plush yet responsive experience.
The Nike Revolution 3 boasts the intelligently designed ‘mixed mesh upper’ with synthetic overlays for an optimal mix of breathability and comfort. The perforations in the upper allow a good amount of air to enter and keep the user’s foot dry and cool while running.
Some synthetic overlays are added. They’re light in weight, yet they add structure to the shoe’s upper.
The breathability is further enhanced with the help of a breathable fabric lining placed across the upper for an excellent feel inside the shoe.
The lace-up closure maintains the snug fit of the shoe around the user’s foot throughout the running session.
The padded tongue and collar keep the runner’s foot in its proper position while out on the roads. Also, these features increase comfortability and facilitate wearing of the shoe.
