The forefront of the soles has some molded flex grooves incorporated into them to help ensure you get a decent amount of flexibility when you are running or working out. These sneakers are going to help ensure that your feet can move as freely and naturally as possible, without restricting your movements. This is going to help give you additional comfort as well potentially prevent strain or injury to your feet. The shoes also feature a wraparound sole which is going to increase the durability and a rope climb grip.
The uppers of the shoes have some synthetic overlays added to them, that their predecessor did not have, to give them a little more durability. The overlays were added to the lateral side of the shoe as well as around the toe areas, as they are the high wear and tear areas of the shoes. This is going to help ensure that they are not going to tear or rip easily in those areas which have been a problem with past versions of these shoes.
The beauty of the lacing system in these sneakers is that it is incorporated into the Flywire uppers to make sure you get a locked in and secure fit. It works similarly to a strap you might find on a weightlifting shoe. As you tighten up your laces the Flyknit is going to come together to ensure your feet are not going anywhere inside of your shoe. No need to worry about sliding around or possibly having your foot slip right out of your shoe while you are wearing these. As long as you get the proper size and fit of the shoes you are going to get a phenomenal amount of support and security.
A lot of comfort from these shoes actually comes from the soft and supportive uppers. They give you a soft sock-like fit thanks to the stretch woven sleeve inside the shoes. The lightweight and breathable materials of the uppers helps make sure that you have a pleasant experience while wearing the sneakers. Giving you the proper support that you need while still giving you the ability to move freely and unrestricted. Customers really appreciate just how comfortable these sneakers are.
The Flywire technology in the uppers gives you a locked-in fit that is similar to the strap you might find on the midfoot area of a pair of best weightlifting shoes. They have a wrap around sole that helps give you a better grip during certain workouts, like rope climbing. There is a decent amount of cushioning (although not a whole lot) which makes running more comfortable, especially when going longer distances. The flexibility incorporated into every aspect of these shoes is ideal for going from one activity to the next with ease.
The Nike Metcon Flyknit 3 sneakers are a bit on the pricey side when compared to other shoes, but they can do so much more than other products on the market, and they are going to last significantly longer. They are not going to suffer from premature wear and tear. Nike learned from their past mistakes and increased the durability of this iteration of the Metcon Flyknit's. They added synthetic overlays to the high wear areas on the uppers to prevent rips and tears and to help increase the life span of the shoes. They did not have to change much about the soles for this version, as they were (and still are) designed to take the repeated pounding of your daily runs and workouts.
Customers have mentioned that these sneakers are running a little on the small side so you might want to consider ordering a half size bigger than you normally would so you can make up for this discrepancy. Some customers have also mentioned that they are a bit narrow so if you have rather wide feet they might not fit you very well and may not be the best choice for you.
They feature the iconic Nike 'Swoosh" on the sides of the shoes, as well as on the tongue. The Metcon logo is written on the side of the shoe as well. There is a pull tab on the heel and a padded tongue and collar. These sneakers are going to look great no matter where you are. Whether you are the track, in the gym, going to school, or heading to work these great looking shoes are going to be the perfect fit.
