Notable elements of The Jordan Air Zoom 85 Runner

The Jordan Air Zoom 85 Runner is a brand new silhouette from Jordan. This road running shoe is inspired by the Air Jordan 1 model in its trademark Chicago colorway, which perfectly blends eye-catching colors including white, red, and black. 

The translucent upper unit of this running shoe utilizes a combination of synthetic leather and textile materials. Synthetic leather offers structure and durability, while the textile material delivers breathability and flexibility. 

Lightweight materials are incorporated into the sole unit of the shoe for a fast and efficient ride. The outsole and midsole units are working together to provide a responsive and comfortable running experience.

The flexible outsole of The Jordan Air Zoom 85 Runner 

Thin yet highly durable rubber is incorporated into the outsole of the Jordan Air Zoom 85 Runner. The rubber outsole removes excess weight, giving a light running sensation. The outsole’s flex grooves not only provide a strong grip on various paved surfaces but also delivers flexibility. This element allows the shoe to move and bend naturally with the foot while running.

In the forefoot section of the midsole is Zoom Air technology. This cushioning material is composed of tightly stretched tensile fibers knitted in a plastic cassette that is filled with air. The knitted fibers compress to minimize the impact and instantly spring back to their original state after each step. This element is responsible for providing a more responsive and energetic run.
