Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 Review: First Impression Before 100k Test Run

If you love the Nike brand and you are looking for a great running shoe under $100, Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 is one of your best options. This Nike running shoe has models awarded by experts as the most affordable running shoes. But experts don’t recommend the Nike Air Zoom Winflo for just affordability, this shoe has no compromise in terms of technology that can push you farther as you run. Although it might not have the premium feel of the top running shoes twice its price.

Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 has mixed reviews in terms of support type. If you look at the product details in the Nike website, you’ll not see any information whether it’s designed for neutral runners or overpronators. There are websites that say it’s a neutral running shoe and there are those that say it has a support type for overpronation/stability.

But the Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 has an excellent arch support, contoured footbed, and a little rigid in the midfoot area, which is ideal for those who overpronate since they need to have a dependable support in the arch tendon of the foot. But supinators may have struggle with this running shoe because it is less flexible in the midfoot area.

Key features of Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7:

  • Mesh details throughout the upper, which helps promote airflow with every step.
  • An Air Zoom unit in the heel and forefoot, which provides cushioning where you need it.
  • More foam, which offers a springier feel and is responsive and durable.
  • Heel counter, which helps your foot feel secure.

How Does Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 Feel on Your Feet?

The Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 has a super comfy heel cushioning. Heel strikers may benefit a lot from this running shoe as well as those who have heel problems. This running shoe offers more foam so it feels springier and more responsive than its predecessor. This shoe can accommodate wide feet but people with bunions may have struggle with it because the toe box isn’t that roomy.

The heel counter helps your foot feel secure by locking your ankle and controlling your foot’s pronation. This running shoe is flexible in the forefoot, which allows your toes to work when pushing off to complete your step. Surprisingly, it seems to lack cushioning in the forefoot area, which can be a concern to those who have issues in their forefoot such as Morton’s neuroma, metatarsalgia, bunions, etc. But it may work for people with hammer toes because the sole is firm in the forefoot and the upper material is soft.

How Does Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 Perform When Used for Walking?

Before proceeding to the test run, we want to make sure that this running shoe also works for walking since there’ll be consumers who will use it for walking only as well as standing for longer periods. After using it for walking around town for 3 days in a row (with at least 5 hours of walking and standing each day), we were satisfied with how it sustained its cushioning and support throughout the whole time. And it gives us an impression that the shoe is durable and could give a prolonged support for longer runs.

It’s Time for the Test Run

We are now ready to test the Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 in its natural design – running. Our runner will test it for 100k (with at least 5k each run) and see how it will compare with other running shoes. Right now, we are confident that this running shoe will not disappoint. And we hope that its materials will live up to its maximum durability. We’ll be back after the 100k run and give feedback regarding our experience with its technology and materials.

See you again after 100k…
