Over the years, Nike has released numerous types of shoes that cater to the unique needs of athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and fashionistas. One model that marries style and functionality is the In-Season TR 7. Its sleek design matches most work and casual clothes while the materials used can withstand intense workouts.
This model builds upon the success of the In-Season TR 6 by utilizing most of its favorable features such as the breathable mesh upper, the dual-density midsole, and the outsole rubber pods.
The exposed midsole makes up most of the In-Season TR 7’s outsole. This material is designed to withstand the wear and tear associated with use.
Rubber pods are placed in the high-impact zones for enhanced protection. They also ensure traction on different types of surfaces.
Flex grooves facilitate natural flexion of the forefoot. By bending at the right areas, they make sure that the natural flexibility of the foot is not hindered.
The In-Season TR 7 features a dual-density midsole. Two types of foam, a firm one and a soft one, are wedged together strategically to encourage the foot to move naturally. The high-density foam is located in the lateral and medial areas to prevent too much rolling in or out of the foot. The softer foam acts as a cushion that muffles the force of impact.
A memory foam lines the footbed of the shoe. The combination of polyurethane with other chemicals gives it a squishy yet robust disposition. The heat of the foot softens the material, allowing it to take the shape of the foot to deliver a customized underfoot experience.
The Nike In-Season TR 7 utilizes a breathable mesh fabric that ensures ventilation, therefore preventing the overheating of the foot. Synthetic materials reinforce the upper, maintaining its structure while providing adequate support.
The lace-up closure now features Flywire, a thread developed by Nike that aims to support the foot and prevent it from slipping out. In this model, the Flywire is evident in the second eyelet that’s closest to the toe box. It locks down the broadest part of the foot and provides support during lateral movements.
Round laces pass through a small slot on top of the slightly padded tongue to prevent it from moving out of place during workouts.
The collar sits low, allowing the ankle more freedom to move. It is lightly padded to prevent chafing of the Achilles and keeps the back of the foot from accidentally slipping out.
Smooth fabric lines the inside of the shoe. It delivers a wall that prevents friction between the foot and the upper unit.
