  • Additional Information: The Fast 3 has a relatively slack fit in the heel, but it is also fairly narrow in the midfoot and forefoot. It’s a comfortably appointed, fairly lightweight high-mileage trainer with a rather firm flex pattern.  The higher heel of these shoes and 14mm heel-toe drop promote a heel-striking gait, which is fine because the cushioned heel crash pad and plentiful midsole cushion make for soft landings.
