I couldn’t find the hubby Vaporflys for Chicago for love or money, and we just got the Zoom Fly Flyknits in the post today.
From what I understand:
Vaporfly = Zoomx foam + Carbon Plate + super light
Zoom Fly = Zoomx foam (same as Vaporfly) + carbon-infused nylon plate
Zoom Fly Flyknit = React foam + carbon plate (same as Vaporfly)
Would the consensus of knowledgeable people be that the Flyknit or regular ZFs would be quicker? i.e Zoomx foam > Carbon plate (or vice versa)
The carbon plate in the new Flyknit is the same(?) as the Vaporfly, but the React foam in the new Flyknit is not the same as the ZoomX. The VF w ZoomX is 2oz lighter with more energy return. How much more? About $90 worth :-)
What size does your hubby wear?
He’s a size 13. And men with big feet have.... big hearts! 🤩
I am a size 14. I can relate :-)
I advise you to call around to local stores in big cities. There are certainly size 13 VFs out there. And, I agree with the above poster: The Reebok Floatride Fast is closer to the VF than the ZoomFly is.
Good luck :-)
