The traction of the Nike Zoom Freak 3 performed inconsistently across several reviewers. Some experienced no issues at all, while others experienced a bit of sliding.
When it comes to cushioning on the Zoom Freak 3, the combination of Phylon and the Zoom pods in the forefoot proved to be inconsistent. Some reviewers felt bouncy and responsive, and others felt that the cushion was too stiff and the caged Zoom pods didn't have room to compress.
Materials, although not premium, felt great on foot. It's also noted that they are more than capable of securing your feet on the court.
That leads to support, which is propped up by the materials and fit of the shoe. Despite the midfoot strap not offering anything performance-wise, the other materials on the shoe perform well to contain your foot.
Overall, the Nike Zoom Freak 3 is a solid performer for $120. Most reviewers even consider it to be an upgrade from the Zoom Freak 2.
