Catch ‘em if you can. Giving you race-day speed to conquer any distance, the Nike Vaporfly 3 is made for the chasers, the racers, the elevated pacers who can’t turn down the thrill of the pursuit. We reworked the leader of the super shoe pack and tuned the engine underneath to help you chase personal bests from a 10K to marathon. From elite runners to those new to racing, this versatile road-racing workhorse is for those who see speed as a gateway to more miles and more seemingly uncatchable highs.

I planned on using these as a running shoe only, but after wearing them a few times I found myself putting them on to do everything. They are super light weight and breathable. They have the fly plate in them like my Alphaflys, but it’s in the middle more so I don’t notice the push forward as much with each step. They are great on the road or track, but similar to the alphafly I have pull rocks out of the small crevice on the sole. The mesh on the top is so minimal which lends to it being light weight and comfy, but I would definitely not wear these if I know it’s going to be wet outside. The color has held up really well, but I haven’t had to wash or clean them off yet. I have worn them in the gym a few times as well and they were fine, good traction, no issues with rolling on my ankles with lateral movements. The sole is thicker so it gives you an inch or so which you definitely notice when you put them on, but after a few minutes that sensation goes away. Overall it is such a comfortable shoe and really comparable to the Alphafly, just not as springy. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Out of the package, these look like running shoes from space, in a good way! They are crazy light, and the awesome white and silver color combo makes them cool and futuristic. The heel has a unique choppy cut to it which helps as you heel strike the ground to propel you forward. Mid-stride, these shoes have an unreal amount of energy bounce back when you run in them. You feel like you’re running on clouds, but somehow clouds with a mini lightening bolt to propel you onwards. The fit is a little different to get used to at first - they are so light and the tongue can push down a little into the foot / towards the toes if they aren’t laced tight. I’d for sure save these for speed-work, quick runs, or race day. Get ready to PR!

These shoes are super lightweight and comfortable. The thicker sole gives added comfort and an extra bounce in your step. Very breathable due to all of the holes in the shoe. The material is easy to clean. They are great for walking or running. They are not made for more aggressive sports like basketball. I don’t provide enough ankle support. Having a narrow foot the shoe gaps at the ankle.
