Well-distributed cushioning

The cushioning is delivered by a soft yet responsive Lunarlon foam. It is a super-lightweight foam that runs the entire length of the shoe, providing athletes with well-distributed cushioning throughout the ride.

Reinforced upper

A tightly-woven mesh fabric makes up the upper unit of the Jordan Trainer Prime. It wraps the foot which ensures a snug fit. The shoe is reinforced with broad synthetic overlays on the lateral and medial sides. They give structure to the façade and keep the foot in place during lateral movements.

Enhanced midfoot and arch support

Precise support is offered by Nike’s Flywire technology. It consists of strategically-placed sturdy cords that function like cables on a suspension bridge. They are integrated with the laces that ensure a secure lockdown.

Another technology assisting the snug fit of Jordan Trainer Prime is the Dynamic Fit neoprene inner sleeve. It consists of soft material “fingers” that wrap the midfoot and arch from underneath the foot for greater support.
