Nike has finally re-amped their Cage model and this new incarnation is nothing short of impressive. Behold the all new Nike Air Zoom Cage 3 tennis shoe for men and women. The new Cage 3 is a much lighter offering than its predecessor and achieves this feat without sacrificing stability and comfort.
This new Air Zoom Cage 3 model is equipped with a full built in bootie with additional padding located in the rear collar which not only adds comfort to the foot in that area but also secures the ankle for a secure fit.
The outsole of this model is constructed of Nike’s XDR rubber which is amongst the most durable compound available – add to this, Nike is offering a 6 month outsole guarantee on this model.
The upper of this model is very cool looking as well but aside from its new esthetic, the new Kurim upper protects the mesh upper which provides great ventilation and a very supportive fit.
Nike has also added an external molded rear heel stabilizing unit to this shoe which assists in providing the ultimate in stability. This plus the Nike Zoom Air cushioning system makes the ride on this model well cushioned and comfortable while maintaining that “low to the ground” ride that most players of all ages and levels insist upon.
This new Nike Air Zoom Cage 3 model is a FANTATSIC shoe and a welcome addition to their collection of tennis performance footwear. Word has it that Rafael Nadal will be wearing this model starting hardcourt season.
The only other thing worth noting is that this new model does run a tad narrow compared to the former Air Zoom cage 2 model. We are recommending that this shoe be tried on before making your purchase decision as the fit is very different compared to previous Nike Air Zoom Cage models.
This new Nike Air Zoom Cage 3 model is now available at First Serve Tennis in several different color options for both men and women.
