Sports and Style
Cool style and fierce fashion meet at the intersection of streetwear and sportswear. Sneakers, first invented by companies like Nike, were originally designed for running. Then, as technology evolved, the sneakers evolved to fit each individual sport: basketball shoes, tennis shoes, running shoes, and the list goes on. But every style of sports sneaker has a definitive place in the pantheon of streetwear.
The Nike Zoom Fly 3 is the product of a similar evolution, and according to the critics, it’s the best one yet. With this sneaker, Nike utilizes its new technology, VaporWeave, for the first time. This ultra-breathable material makes these sneakers incredibly light and cool during long-distance runs. React foam midsoles provide great cushioning and energy-return for runners, and carbon fiber plates allow for ideal flexibility.
For a little taste of just how well-suited these shoes are for running, a prototype version of the Vaporfly was actually banned by World Athletics, the governing body of track and field. This came after a Nike marathon runner became the first person to complete a marathon in under two hours. The Vaporfly is considered the elite racing counterpart to the more casual Zoom Fly series; fortunately, the Zoom Fly 3 itself isn’t on the blacklist.
Aside from its bad boy status, the Nike Zoom Fly 3 makes a bold style statement. An oversized Nike Swoosh across the upper makes it stand out from most Nike products, which generally feature a more modestly sized logo. A thicker midsole also helps this silhouette stand out, making it a visual focal point of any outfit. Of course, its transparent upper plays on Nike’s epic style, revealing the amazing architecture of their sneakers.
There are also two women’s exclusive variations of the Nike Zoom Fly 3. The Nike Zoom Fly 3 Rise features a much subtler Swoosh, and the Nike Zoom Fly 3 Premium features a more classic Swoosh. For sprinters, there’s also the Nike Zoom JA Fly 3, complete with lightweight spikes to provide the traction and speed they need.
