Cushioned to the Max: Nike Invincible 3 Feels Unlike Any Other
Launches 9/2/23

This latest version packs the top technology of running footwear into one product—without compromising the core features of what’s come before.

What’s new:

  • Nike Invincible 3 features Nike’s most innovative and advanced cushioning platform in ZoomX
  • It delivers optimal cushioning for a new level of comfort, along with high support and responsiveness
  • Targeted updates are designed for stability to help prevent your foot from rolling as you run

What’s the difference from the Invincible 2?

First, one thing that bears emphasis: The Invincible 3 is not an overhaul of its predecessor. Rather, it’s an all-around enhancement on Invincible 2’s primary features.

According to the Invincible 3 footwear designers, the team was adamant about not making any radical changes to the previous style. They shared that the responsiveness, cushioning and support from the Invincible 2 is back in a sleek new look—they just upgraded the technologies that deliver it.

Of those upgrades, cushioning was primary: The Invincible 3 has more foam than both the Invincible 1 and 2, yet still manages to look less bulky. This is due to the team creating a sleeker, more streamlined design with a slimmed-down silhouette as part of the shoe’s new, futuristic visual style.


The Nike Invincible 3 is a revolutionary running shoe that is designed to provide an unbeatable combination of comfort, and durability. As someone who has been running for years, I was thrilled to try out this new release from Nike, and I have to say that it did not disappoint.

First and foremost, the Invincible 3 is incredibly comfortable. The shoe features a plush, responsive foam midsole that cushions every stride and helps to reduce the impact on the joints. The upper is made of a lightweight, breathable mesh material that conforms to the shape of your foot and allows for ample airflow, keeping your feet cool and dry even during intense workouts.

In terms of support, the Nike Invincible 3 really shines. The shoe features a wider base than previous versions, which helps to promote stability and prevent pronation. The midsole is also sculpted to cradle the foot and provide support where you need it most, while the high arch helps to distribute weight evenly and reduce pressure on the ball of the foot.

Finally, the Nike Invincible 3 is built to last. The outsole is made of a durable rubber material that provides excellent traction and resists wear and tear, even on rough surfaces. The upper is also reinforced with strategically placed overlays that help to protect the shoe from abrasion and extend its lifespan.

Overall, I would highly recommend the Nike Invincible 3 to any runner looking for a comfortable, supportive, and durable shoe that can withstand even the toughest workouts. It’s a great investment for anyone who takes their running seriously and wants to perform at their best.

“The Nike Invincible 3 is really that easy running day shoe,” said Charles Han, Senior Footwear Designer, at Performance Running for Nike. “Getting people in what was essentially a racing foam, and scaling it for everyday use was super exciting. It was like uncharted territory.”

Just like the cushioning, the other improvements aren’t immediately apparent to the eye—however, they’re noticeable once you put the shoes on.

The goal is always the same with every version: To help you feel invincible when you run.
