Don’t be fooled by the name. The Nike Zoom Speed Trainer 3 is more than a running shoe. The latest edition in the Nike series offers both stability and comfort, whether you’re lifting weights or running a marathon. Made with low-profile cushioning and durable mesh, the shoes offers impact protection and breathability. The synthetic bands entwined with the laces ensure no shifting or slippage in the shoe, making sure that your feet remain locked in place. Other features include durable circular-knit mesh which provides directional support, a solid rubber outsole that allows you to have great traction, and rubber wraps over the arch and lateral side to protect your feet from abrasions. Personally, while I think that these pair of shoes are not as passable for casual wear than it’s predecessors, it is still an incredibly great pair of cross-trainers for it’s price.
