The Superfly R3 is the lightest version, of this model line, to date. The light weight mesh upper uses strategic welding and a forefoot strap to lock the foot down. Combine that with the stiff and aggressive eight-spike plate design and you get the ultimate power sprint spike. Includes sixteen 8mm compression tiered spikes and a spike wrench.

Customer Reviews

Comments: These are fantastic, for an old fella like me, (42), they are really light and powerful, make me feel young again. Comfort-wise, not like my gumboots, but for less than 400m it's worth it. I have a really wide forefoot, and these fit firmly, the power strap holds my foot close to the spike bese.

Comments: I was indecisive about getting this due to the price. But I am serious about track and field so I got them for one they weren't as expensive as retail price as well as free 2 day shipping! As well as the site here is wonderful I ordered overnight shipping had an issue was freaking out I wont be getting it early enough for my meet so I can break them in but they did it! Now about the shoes. Their light, beautiful, strong, and amazing. Nike does give you an awkward feeling around your toes but overall I love these track shoes I would recommend this and this site!
