Nike recently unveiled its Joyride cushioning system and we have a detailed look and review on its debut shoe — the Nike Joyride Run Flyknit.
Sporting a combination upper featuring Flyknit and neoprene, the Nike Joyrun Run Flyknit offers a stretchy build to accommodate most foot shapes.
Nike Running sent us the shoe a 1/2 size up from our usual size. That could have been a mistake, but it could also could have been due to the shoe running a bit snug. Even at 1/2 size larger than my true size, the shoe is still on the snug size. Wide footers may want to consider going up 1/2 size.
The Joyride itself is a weird feeling. Jarring initially, but does conform to your foot as time goes on.
While this initial review and breakdown covers a lot, we will be doing an updated review on the shoe from both a performance running perspective and a casual perspective.
The Nike Joyride Run Flyknit is currently scheduled to release on August 15 at Nike.com, but will be available to Nike+ members starting August 1. Retail is $180.
