Advice for Road Runners: The Nike Women's Zoom Fly 5 Road Running Shoes in the Topaz Gold/Black-Sea Coral-White colourway can be used for training and racing.
These are highly versatile road running shoes.
Cushioned and responsive. Nike has housed energy returning ZoomX foam in a soft carrier foam called SR02. The result should be that you experience a great balance between propulsion and soft cushioning.
The Zoom Fly 5 does contain a carbon fibre plate. This should really help you to build and maintain forward momentum during your training runs and races.
Significantly, the forefoot and heel have a wide base. This should help with stability - as you will have a lot of outsole in contact with the ground.
The upper is designed to be light and breathable. The upper does not contain Nike's Flyknit or Flywire technology, but should be well contoured to the shape of your feet.
As mentioned, the Nike Women's Zoom Fly 5 Road Running Shoes are very well suited to both training and racing. A lot of 'racing' shoes often need to be kept for race day. However, these running shoes offer a great balance of being suitable for training runs and races.
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.
