Advice for Road Runners: The Nike Women's Zoom Fly 5 running shoes feature ZoomX foam and a carbon fibre plate. As a result, they bring maximum propulsion to everyday training miles and speed focused sessions.
The Nike Zoom Fly 5 has a thick layer of iconic ZoomX foam. This delivers unrivalled levels of cushioning and energy return.
A propulsive full-length carbon fibre plate runs through the midsole. This serves two purposes. Firstly, it improves energy return from the ZoomX foam. Secondly, it actively rolls your feet forward, helping save you energy.
You'll feel the benefits of this propulsive midsole at all paces - from your long steady miles, to your short and hard hill repeats.
During faster paced workouts, nothing should stand in your way. A wide forefoot and heel area offers great stability, so you can take corners at full velocity.
The Nike Zoom Fly 5 running shoes feature a lightweight mesh upper. While there's a clear focus on breathability and performance, soft padding around the heel collar offers extra comfort and support.
They also have a dynamic lace-up fit and additional support in the midfoot to keep your feet contained and secure.
The Nike Women's Zoom Fly 5 are undoubtedly one of the most versatile running shoes. That's because they make all paces of running feel easier. While many runners will opt for these for faster paced sessions, they'll work equally well for slower paced runs, when you're looking to take some additional stress off your legs.
Even though the Nike Zoom Fly 5 don't offer as much propulsion as the Vaporfly or Alphafly Road Racing Shoes, they will offer an advantage on race day. In a perfect world, we'd recommend training in the Zoom Fly 5 and then racing in either the Vaporfly or Alphafly. That's because the Zoom Fly 5 are more durable.
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.
