The 'No Finish Line' detail on the Sea Glass/Black-Sundial-Bright Crimson colourway should resonate with a lot of runners pursuit of excellence.
ZoomX foam is extremely lightweight. With this in mind, it's astonishing how bouncy and protective it feels. The addition of a full-length carbon fibre plate means the midsole feels highly propulsive.
The midsole of the Nike Vaporfly 3 is very distinctive. This is a result of the specific midsole shaping and lateral cut-out. Both of which help create a more stable underfoot feel.
Even though the Flyknit upper is ultra light, it feels soft and supportive. Meaning the Vaporfly 3 upper performs well over longer distances, such as the marathon.
The toe box area should feel spacious and accommodate a range of foot shapes.
A lot of runners opt for the Nike Men's Vaporfly 3 Running Shoes for marathon events. That's because the propulsive midsole is very likely to help people run faster and make the distance feel more comfortable. At the same time, these are also excellent options for shorter events.
While you may want to save these for race day, many use the Vaporfly 3 for faster-paced training sessions. This is because runners often find the propulsive midsole reduces post session muscle soreness.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
