Since the 1920’s, running shoes have been a part of our lives. Over the decades, the design and quality have evolved and have even become complicated. Now, with modern technology, there is a shoe designed for almost every type of runner: runners with different strides, different types of feet, and different styles of running. It’s important to know that even though it may be designated as “the perfect shoe”, it is only perfect for what it is actually designed to do, and, it may be completely wrong for you.
Runners and running shoes are so widely varied that you have to ask yourself, “Will this particular shoe and what it is designed to do actually be perfect for me?” The brand of a shoe many times does not tell us much, because each brand has a variety of shoes for almost every type of runner. However, Nike is, well…..special. Not only does the company make great running shoes, the Nike brand is valued at $26 billion making it THE most valuable brand among sports businesses. Originating in America, it has become a multi-national cooperation that is committed to the design, development, and then manufacturing of not just footwear, but also apparel, equipment, accessories, and services.
Then, use a ruler to measure the heel-to-toe length in inches. Do this on both sides because right and left feet are often slightly different in size. And, be sure to measure your feet in the afternoon because feet generally swell in the afternoon. Finally, use a Nike size chart to convert the size. For example, a women’s size 6 will measure 9” heel-to-toe; a men’s size 6 will measure 9 3/8” heel-to-toe. The easiest way to find this is to go to Nike.com, type in the shoe name, and then click on "size chart". It is important to note, however, that some runners report a tightening in the upper fabrics after being washed.
Men sizes range from 7-15. However, half sizes are not available over 13. Sizes 7, 12.5, 14, and 15 are sometimes difficult to find. Comes in Black, Black/Turquoise, Blue/White/Volt, Dark/Gray/Red, Black/White, Gray/Black/Red, Gray/White, Gray/Blue, Black/Anthracite/Black as well as Blue/Black. Runners complement the fact that the design of the shoe they received was what was shown in the picture, and, of course, you get a vibrant Swoosh logo, but not on the side…it's on the top!
The laces on the Nike FS Lite Run 3 have been redone due to concerns of laces coming undone during the run on the previous model. The new laces have more texture that help hold your bow in place throughout your entire run.
In addition to the minimalist design, these shoes offer a wider toe box, allowing toes to naturally splay while running. Plus, the dual-density Phylon foam offers an amazing feeling without weighing you down. As you know, Nike's Swoosh logo design conveys fluidity as well as motion and speed. And, that is exactly what you get with this shoe. So, keep your feet happy and healthy with the Nike FS Lite Run 3. Just Do It!
