Thursday, May 03, 2012 Nike Zoom Courtlite 3 Offers Fashionable Comfort

Nike Women's Zoom Courtlite 3One of the lightest shoes on the market, the Nike Zoom Courtlite 3 is available for women only and comes in a number of fashion friendly options for matching with outfits. Boasting improved breathability and midfoot support, the Zoom Courtlite 3 is quickly becoming a shoe for the women to look at.

As with all Nike shoes, the first thing to think about is the cushioning technology which can range anywhere from Lunarlon to Air Max and the Zoom Courtlite 3 is no different. Taking advantage of Zoom technology in the heel, this shoe provides a lightweight, low-to-the-ground feel without sacrificing comfort.

A full-length phylon midsole provides responsive feedback along the entire length of the foot for quick movements on the court. Keeping the shoe light was important in the design of this shoe, so larger mesh panels were added to give superior breathability as well as show off part of the stability system.

Along the bottom of the shoe you will notice a TPU shank designed to promote midfoot stability and arch support.

The full-length XDR outsole comes in a herringbone tread pattern that offers traction on all surfaces but we found it worked best on softer courts. It is important to note that this shoe fits a half-size smaller, so be sure to order a larger size than you normally wear. The fit is medium across the width of the shoe while the arch support is a little on the low side.

Players that supinate should be cautious with the Nike Zoom Courtlite 3 due to its flexpoint being slightly further back than the ball of the foot. Our testing staff with neutral or pronating feet did not have any issues however.
