The Design Of The Nike Zoom Fly 3

Jordan Brand Senior Footwear Designer, Vianney de Montgolfier shared an insight into some of the design process of the Nike Zoom Fly to his portfolio last summer.

“Fast is the focus with these training and racing shoes that are designed to meet the needs of every runner — from world-class marathoners to those who just want to log I-feel-amazing miles on the weekends.” – Vianney de Montgolfier

With many features similar to the VaporFly (a carbon fiber plate within the midsole, a Vaporweave upper and a similar stack height), the Zoom Fly 3’s however sit on top of a Nike React sole tooling (not the Pebax sole unit utilised on the VaporFly).

Below you can see some of the initial sketch / renders, as well as a look at the final silhoeutte.
