Size and fit

The mid-top Nike Joyride CC3 Setter is offered in men's sizing. This sneaker has a stretchy upper with inner sleeves that hug the feet comfortably for a snug fit. The collar was also inserted with padding for an added plush feel without restricting the ankle movement. Unlike the conventional look of other lace-up sneakers, this kick has a burrito tongue with an asymmetrical lacing system for a secure, adjustable fit. Meanwhile, the pull tabs on the heel and tongue are used for easy on and off.

Nike used the Nike React foam on its midsole with the innovative Joyride cushioning technology that is made of tiny beads. This conforms to the feet and delivers a personalized plush feel and lightweight experience in every wearer's step.

Nike Joyride CC3 Setter Style

Fusing the latest technologies and fashionable look, this is what the Nike Joyride CC3 Setter sneakers are all about. The stretchy knit upper is added with several remarkable overlays to add style and reinforcement. To make this pair look unique, Nike used a transparent underfoot rubber outsole to give its audiences a better look at the innovative Joyride balls.

Labeled as the "muscle car of the Joyride family," this run-recovery sneaker is finished with an asymmetrical lacing system added with unique pull tabs. Nike offers this model in various colorways for wearers to pick from. Some of the popular hues are sail/sequoia/team orange/black, white/barely volt/crimson, hyperpink/kumquat black/, black/black-volt/oatmeal, and white/black/barely violet.

Styling this athletic-inspired sneaker is reasonably easy. Just match this kick up with a crew-neck t-shirt and a pair of ripped jeans for a laidback look. This sneaker can also be paired with dark skinny jeans with a long camel overcoat for a stylish casual appeal on one's modish getup.
