Designed by Nike, the Air Zoom Structure offers a fast and speedy running shoe option to those that commonly pronate or roll inwards with each of their natural foot strikes. You know it's a shoe you can trust when Galen Rupp trains and races in them claiming Silver in London 2012 and Bronze in Rio 2016 in the 10,000m. This running shoe works by utilizing a medial longitudinal arch that helps to prevent common injuries such as medial ankle sprains, sinus tarsi syndrome, or knee and hip pain. By aligning your foot strike you become more efficient with each step helping you to run further and reach your full potential. Nike has included the Flywire cables that were new in the 22nd edition in the 23rd edition of the structure that helps to secure the top of your foot as well as partial sleeves within the shoe that promote a snug, comfortable fit. Also designed with Duralon blown rubber on the forefoot to enhance cushioning leaving you with a stable ride that is responsive and long-lasting. The new developments of the 23rd edition see the Structure sport an Zoom Air unit in the forefoot, offering a responsive cushioning feel that helps propel you forward faster. Finally, with a well researched and informed design, the crash pad within the Structure 23 is placed at the heel to offer extra cushioning for the heel-toe transition.
Perforations at the forefoot and midfoot add ventilated support to the upper. A woven heel delivers a secure fit to help keep your foot in place.
A Zoom Air unit in the forefoot offers responsive cushioning. Every step helps create energy return for an optimal feel. It combines with a foam midsole for plush comfort as your foot hits the ground.
Data from hundreds of runners helped inform the crash pad placement at the heel. It helps provide extra cushioning for heel-to-toe transitions.
