#Breaking2 – We have the NEW Nike Zoom Fly available
We have recently received the latest #breaking2 inspired Nike Zoom Fly in store. The unique fit and feel of the shoe is unlike anything we have experienced. In our initial testing, it feels as though you float along the ground with less effort. It almost feels like the shoe is pushing you forward or like you are running with a tailwind. Whilst the shoe is lightweight, the cushioning is to the contrary. This shoe feels as comfortable as a training shoe with all the benefits of a racing shoe.
When you have done all the training and you are looking for that little extra edge, the new Nike Zoom Fly may be your ticket to that personal best time. Available in both male and female sizing at the intraining Running Centre.
Keen to give them a go? Ready to experience effortless running? Drop by the store and see if the new Nike Zoom Fly has what it takes to propel you towards your goal at your next event.
Remember, as with all shoe purchases at intraining Running Centre, our trained footwear specialists will analyse your running gait to ensure you put your best foot forward.
