The NikeLab version of the Zoom Fly features original concept sketches printed on the sock liner, running focused detail graphics, in the form of Nike’s circa 1976 pinwheel swoosh logo, a checkerboard finish line flag and speed track icon on the tongue, and digital clock readout on the heel. This semi-translucent monochrome pair features stretch-woven uppers that stretch and breathe with the foot and an embedded, full-length, carbon-infused nylon plate that increases stiffness and support where the foot needs it most. These sneakers have been designed to be “fast enough for race day, yet durable enough for everyday training” and come complete with a highly resilient Lunarlon foam midsole and rubber outsole underfoot.
Ultra-lightweight, soft and highly resilient Lunarlon foam creates a light, responsive underfoot experience, while an embedded, full-length, carbon-infused nylon plate increases stiffness. A high abrasion rubber in the heel adds durability. The shoe’s 10mm offset is designed to minimize Achilles strain, and the 33-mm stack height ensures impact protection mile after mile, while the translucent, stretch-woven upper is both light and breathable.
