Upper

Made with Flyknit fabric evolved with areas of increased breathability where it is necessary.  

The tongue is made without seams and has achieved a soft padding. This, together with the padded collar around the heel, provides a good fit to the foot.

The upper is soft and comfortable, and also has properties of resistance and durability.

 MAN EVERYDAY RUNNING SHOES


Midsole

Made of ZoomX foam, which is Nike's lightest, softest and most reactive foam.  It will give you a greater return of energy from each of your footsteps.  You will have the same reactive cushioning of the Vaporfly and Alphafly.

When you run with them you feel a super soft touch.  The foam has a higher height to provide even more softness.

The most technical people say that the shape of the midsole is rocker geometry.  It's that rocker shape that allows you to be faster during the three phases of each of your stride.  You get more fluidity when the foot moves forward and cushioning when it comes in contact with the ground.

The wider base gives you a stable ride. And the ZoomX foam provides an efficient feel (without a carbon fibre plate).

The height and width of the midsole forces you to run less on your heel, so there's more vertical alignment between your ankle, knee and hip.  This reduces the impact of the foot when stepping and thus also reduces the chance of injury when running.

Outsole

Wide, extra-large forefoot silhouette provides a more stable foot strike.  Thin rubber outsole gives you more resilience with every step.

Waffle outsole is based on runner feedback to give you traction where you need it most.

It's made of rubber for superior traction and durability.

The grip is good in the wet so they will be perfect for running even on rainy days.

Nike ZoomX Invincible Run Flyknit 2 Who they are aimed at

Pro runners say that the Invincible Run 2 will be good for 5k to half marathon distances.  But the reality is that these are shoes to enjoy running so that you can finish your training and longer races with less fatigue in your legs.

They are designed to run on asphalt at paces above 4:30 min/km.  That is more or less the time from which popular runners take to run a kilometre.  

Of course, they will allow you to go under that figure.  But if you're capable of doing 10 km in under 40 minutes, you have lighter weight shoes that will allow you to go even faster.

So think of them as fun, cushioned and responsive shoes.  So you'll finish your runs having fun.

For neutral runners who train and compete in events from a 5K to a Half Marathon.

Tested for miles

We reproduce here a text from Nike on the safety of running with the Nike Invincible.

"Testing indicates that the Nike ZoomX Invincible Run showed no statistically significant difference in the frequency of running-related pain compared to the Nike React Infinity Run.

During testing(1), runners wearing the Nike React Infinity Run missed 52% fewer consecutive running sessions (3 or more) due to running-related pain than those running in the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22, our traditional motion control shoe.

(1) In a study of 226 men and women during a 12-week running training programme, runners wearing the Nike React Infinity Run missed 52% fewer consecutive running sessions (3 or more) due to running-related pain than those running in the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22.

Our study revealed that 30.3% of runners using the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22 suffered an injury, but only 14.5% of runners using the Nike React Infinity Run suffered an injury.

Participants reported running-related pain and progress using virtual questionnaires.
