Created to use Nike’s magnificent ZoomX midsole cushioning outside of race day, the ZoomX Invincible Run Flyknit was built as the pinnacle of Nikes training line, offering max cushioning with responsiveness that you can wear day in and day out for your training runs.

Despite only being three years old, the Invincible has already become a firm favourite because of that huge stack of Peba based ZoomX foam. It offers a highly responsive, bouncy feel, in a shoe designed for easy days and long miles, its unusual but who doesn’t want a little extra help with every stride?

Closer Look

Available in black, white and an almost denim looking blue here at Pro:Direct the Invincible 3 has an immediately improved look, partly from the new upper, and partly from the re-shaped side walls of the midsole, giving a much sleeker and more modern appearance.


Talking of the upper, slightly paired down from the previous version in terms of padding, it hasn’t lost any of its comfort, as the new Flyknit upper is built for a more compact sensation.


In the forefoot, it has been designed to provide more volume, allowing for foot swell over the course of those long training miles.


The heel clip has been changed in this version too, as part of a search for improved stability, it’s lower, but with a precise placement that stretches further forward on the foot.


The improved stability also comes from the midsole which has been made wider in the heel and forefoot to provide a more solid platform for each step. The shape of the midsole has also been tweaked to give a prominent heel to toe rocker which helps for a smooth transition. 

Within the outsole the grippy lugs have been made even deeper for improved grip and extended durability, this extra rubber underfoot also gives a slightly firmer feeling as you transition to the toe off.

With no plates or carrier foams to distract from the pure sensation of a thick stack of ZoomX, you get an incredible underfoot sensation, but stability was always going to be an issue, so all the extra work Nike have put into keeping your pronation controlled will be appreciated towards the end of a long run.

Featuring an unrivalled amount of bounce for a non-race day shoe, the Nike Invincible has always had a great sense of fun about it. Updating that feeling with a more accommodating, more stable, and more durable shoe in this third iteration lets more people get on board and enjoy its charm.

Having suffered from Chronic Fatigue for over a decade, I am a recent convert to the joys of running. Although every run steals a lot of energy, the mental health and fitness benefits more than make up for it. My runs are mainly across the back of the nearby beaches, dodging between the tourists. When not geeking out over the latest running tech, you can find me trying new gins, making gins, or boring anyone within earshot about gin.
