Bill Bowerman stated, 'A shoe must be three things. It must be light, comfortable, and it’s got to go the distance.' The Nike Alphafly 3 running shoes are all of these. One could argue these attributes are even more important when it comes to long distance running - particularly in the marathon. The Alphafly 3 are Nike’s most tested racing shoes to date. As a result, the latest edition features several updates that can benefit a wide range of running abilities. Ultimately making them one of the best running shoes for marathon racing. Changes to the midsole should result in a more energetic, propulsive, and yet more stable and smoother experience. Midsole sculpting and cutouts improve the functionality of the Zoom Air Units. While changes to the ZoomX construction improves energy return. Smoother transitions from landings to take-offs are achieved by a new continuous midsole design. Finally, a wider midfoot section in the carbon fibre FlyPlate improves support. These are the lightest Alphafly to date - which makes them feel faster. A lot of weight reduction has been achieved from the sculpted midsole and reductive heel design. However, a new lighter outsole rubber, that doesn’t compromise durability, has been added. This outsole rubber also has a new lug design that improves traction around corners in both dry and wet conditions. A brand new AtomKnit 3.0 upper offers exceptional support, comfort, and is ultra lightweight. While it still delivers the signature Alphafly sock-like fit, it feels even more performance oriented. At the same time, the soft yarns can stretch to accommodate foot swelling in long runs. Helping to keep you feeling more comfortable. We can’t guarantee you faster marathon times. However, there’s a high chance the Nike Alphafly 3 racing shoes are very likely to play a big part in any new personal best. In our opinion, these are one of the fastest and most comfortable running shoes for hard runs and long distance races.
