- Thick cushioning and solid outsole help to reduce impact of running
- EVA sockliner cradles your foot, offering stability and reducing slippage
- Sturdy, well-built shoes that protect your feet from rocky ground
Limited upper protection, and the sole is a bit too thick for some runners.
Performance: For those who want to run in style and comfort, look no further than these Nikes. Not only do they have a thick rubber outsole, but they have an EVA sockliner and the Zoom Air cushioning system. Together, these three things help to cushion impact and reduce wear on your joints. The rubber outsole may be a bit thick for runners who want a more responsive shoe, but it will prevent sharp edges and rocky terrain from hurting your feet.
The shoes offer neutral arch support, and they're lightweight and beautifully breathable. What the upper lacks in durability, it more than makes up for in ventilation. The slim profile makes these shoes stylish, and you'll love the supportive nature of the flyweight mesh upper.
Features: The Zoom Air cushion built into the shoes gives you more rebound with every step, plus reducing joint impact. For muddy and slippery surfaces, you'll find the lugged sticky outsole offers better wet surface traction than most trail runners.
The upper is built to hug your feet, with Flywire cables integrated into the synthetic material. The design of the shoes will prevent slipping around, improving stability and preventing blisters. With the exaggerated lugs in the outsole, you'll always be on solid footing no matter where you run.
Price: At $125, these are some VERY expensive shoes. However, given the durability and reliability of Nike's manufacturing, you can trust they'll last for a long time. If you want shoes built for experienced runners, they're worth the price.
