Nike Revolution 3
For runners who want a neutral running shoe for regular training purposes, the Nike Revolution 3 is a good choice. Runners who tried the shoe loved how comfortable it felt and said it was an all around great buy. Even non-runners found themselves drawn to and falling for the Nike Revolution 3. Reviews are overwhelmingly positive and there’s very little not to like about the shoe. It’s a great choice for anyone who wants a reliable and comfortable shoe, whether it’s for run training or walking the dog. It comes in a variety of attractive color options and is highly durable.
The only two negatives? There isn’t enough arch support for very high arched runners and the insole isn’t removable so you’re stuck with it. Some might also be put off by the firm midsole cushioning but that’s a personal preference. Keep in mind, it’s not meant to be a highly cushioned shoe. If you’re looking for a long-distance trainer, you may want to consider a shoe with a little bit more padding. Otherwise, the Nike Revolution 3 is a great choice for runners looking to train for their first 5K or 10K or for seasoned runners wanting to get through half marathon training season unscathed.

- My 2nd pair, I’m a distance runners 59 years old, the last pair did 400 miles, no damage no tears and the out sole held up superbly, nothing dropped off for the insole, I find these durable and relatively comfortable. Cushion performance wears gradually but so does all shoes. I will keep with these, they are basic but very good.
- Great pair of low cost shoes, nice light feel, durability is ok so far, cushion level surprisingly good, I do have a wide pair of feet 4E and the Fit is good, no problems, I loved the price, I know there basic but that's all I need.
- Like the traction, its there when I need it, good for long walking and moderate jogs, comfort at the start is great but gradually drops due to cushion wear, these are my 3rd and I love these.
- I have dodgy knees and these shoes are light so I enjoy the absence of weight dragging on my feet and knees, I like the heel support a lot, recommend these as a nice priced standard shoe.
- Love the heel stack, perfect for walking and lots of support, the cushion is solid and holds well, I just jog twice a week and for the price I got my monies worth.
- As shoes for casual, strolling around the parks, even for travel, these are great, I do a bit of running and cycling and so far these have been fine.
- These are comfy, feel good and supportive at the heel and lots of comfort, I’m on my feet a lot and I can’t fault these. Nice casual shoe but not waterproof.
- I had the previous style, like the modifications, good shoe and really sturdy, cushion level is basic but fine, fit is nice and for warm days these are good for running but not distance running or trails.
- Appearance is important, I love the color choices, the shoe feels really light and does not drag on the foot, the upper does breath so less sweat on the feet but if it rains I get wet feet. Nice lights sports and casual shoe.
- My son does have huge feet, and wide, triple E and I found a pair of these that fit him perfectly, he does indoor track and says the shoe is great, he said the cushion is balanced and the traction seriously good. I will buy these for him again.
- These look good, they run good, easy to clean, the heel support is a really nice feature and the upper keeps my feet cool, the price is decent, no complaints.
- My ankles bend inwardly when I run and this makes my legs hurt, the shoe took too long to break in, the worst was the cuts that I got on my Achilles, no mater what socks I tried it made no difference. I run a lot and I don’t recommend these for running but fine for casual.
- The shoes were weak and fell apart, starting at the front, the glued area just drifted off, six months wear maximum if you’re lucky. The ankle support is not there, I do triathlons and know when a shoe is not up to scratch. Walking around yes, running distance, a big no.
- Forget ankle support, there ain’t none and I can feel every stone I step on, some parts of the shoe are solid and other parts squishy and not supportive touchdown and my feet lean inwards which really is not a good thing. This is a cheap shoe, it looks nice but it’s a moderate use shoe.
- The sole confuses me it made from different thickness or materials and underfoot feels like a mixed solid and soft sensations, I can feel that in some areas I feel stones and these are uncomfortable while running.
- The shoe lacks mid foot support as I found out by the end of two runs, my feet also roll in these and this causes a lot of discomfort, don’t get caught out in the rain, this will not protect your feet.
The cushioning is definitely hard, though, so don't be surprised by the firmer ride. It's less of a negative than it is a personal preference. The firmer cushioning does offer more support which may be something to consider.
Inside the shoe, there's a cushioned insole which both adds comfort and provides a bit of extra support for wearers. The insole cannot be taken out, though, so if you have custom orthotics or like to add extra cushioned insoles make sure to try the shoe on with those slipped in before buying. Both the tongue and heel of the shoe have plenty of padding to ensure the wearer stays comfortable and there's nothing that rubs the ankle area raw.
The upper fits snugly but also breathes very well. Runners didn't feel like they were overheating inside the shoe. The cushioning is firm but provides plenty of energy-return. A wide toe box is perfect for runners who require a little extra room but not too roomy that it causes regular footed runners to slip and slide inside the shoe. Overall, reviewers were super pleased with the shoe's great fit.
Many reviewers chose to purchase the Nike Revolution 3 as a casual wear shoe and had no intention of even running with it. It's a well-designed shoe that's backed up by a quality build.
Overall, reviewers loved how durable the Nike Revolution 3 was and felt it added to the value of the shoe.
Some reviewers did point out that the Nike Revolution 3 is not a great choice for high arched runners since there's just not enough arch support in the midfoot area. Runners worried about their ankles will feel well supported by the Nike Revolution 3, however.
- Mesh panels for enhanced temperature control
- Thicker mesh in high-wear areas
- Cushioned insole is comfortable and supportive
- Phylon midsole material is firm but responsive
- Plush tongue and heel areas
- Regular lacing system
- Rubber outsole is durable and grippy
- Flex Grooves for flexibility
Very few reviewers had negative remarks about the shoe except perhaps for some comments about firm cushioning. It's true that the Phylon padding is hard but this ensures a supportive base. The Nike Revolution 3 is not a heavily cushioned shoe but there's enough packed into the midsole to protect against shock. The Nike Revolution 3 is a great all-around shoe and comes in plenty of different color variations to suit runners and non-runners alike.
