Nike Zoom Fly 5 Running Shoes
Bridge the gap between your weekend training run and race day in a durable design that can be deployed not just at the starting line of your favourite race but in the days and months after your conquest. It offers comfort and reliability but with a propulsive sensation that’ll help you feel fast and fresh. That kind of versatility is uncommon in the running arena. But who said you can’t have it all?
Breathable Mesh Upper
For a softer, more breathable feel than their predecessors, the Nike Zoom Fly 5 utilises a lightweight mesh upper that encases the foot to conform to your feet. This soft upper has perforations throughout the shoes to allow airflow through the shoe, creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive within. Nike’s own Flyknit material is placed around the collar of the shoes, to provide extra stretch, making them easy to take on and off. The combination of the two fabrics provides a sock-like fit so that your foot feels secure and comfortable. Completing the upper of these shoes is webbing that intertwines with the laces of the shoe, giving you a locked-in fit. When you lace up, the shoes will tighten, giving you stability in every stride.
Newly implemented Nike ZoomX foam provides the Zoom Fly 5 with a responsive and lightweight midsole. Ultra-light and super-responsive, the midsole material delivers Nike’s greatest energy return yet; it absorbs impact and then expels it back out for a bounce-like effect. This energy-return technology reduces the use of superfluous muscle power, diminishing fatigue and enhancing performance, keeping you going for longer. The revolutionary ZoomX foam is manufactured from Pebax, a product conventionally used in plastic bridges and other moulded parts, and yields cushioning that is not only lightweight but soft AND springy. Until now, these three characteristics (collectively) have proven nearly impossible to achieve. Pebax has a lower density than some thermoplastic alternatives and this makes it lighter, flexible, and more impact-resistant, whilst giving it a higher capacity for energy return. When blown into a foam these properties remain, gifting you with a lively underfoot feeling that encourages you to run fast. Signalling the incredible resilience of ZoomX, the tiny creases that occur on every midsole do not have an impact on the foam’s performance; these beauty marks are a result of the autoclave process which places the foam under extreme heat and pressure. The ZoomX sheets are then compressed in a Phylon preform which shapes the midsole parts. Because the special foam is so lightweight (one-third the weight of Cushlon), Nike can use more of it to separate your foot from the road; this means you get a thick and supportive midsole that will spare your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving concrete. Shaped like a rocker, the foam provides support for the 3 phases of a runner’s stride. It offers flexibility when your foot rises off the ground, a smooth ride when your foot is moving forward, and cushioning at ground contact. As well as this, a wide, exaggerated shape at the forefoot and heel offer a slightly wider base for a more stable ride.
Durable Rubber Outsole
Developed using a lightweight rubber outsole, the Zoom Fly 5 ensures extraordinary traction in varied conditions. The durable rubber provides a strong grip, protects itself from damage, and protects users from losing control and slipping. The rubber is placed on high-wear areas such as the forefoot and heel to increase durability and resist the traumas of heel strikes. Supplying you with a reliable and long-lasting running buddy. Flex grooves also feature on the outsole to enhance multi-surface traction ensuring confident footing whether you’re training or out for 10k.
