The Nike Air Max 2016 defines comfort

What's more is the Nike Air Zoom units eat up impact so well.
An upper that cuddles the foot
The shoe's upper is so "soft," and "non-irritating," testers love it so much.
From the heel to the midfoot, the Nike Air Max 2016 has a supportive fit. And in the forefoot, it has enough room for the foot to swell.

The Nike Air Max 2016 is so beefed-up; it's ugly
It's "awkwardly bulky," remarked multiple critics. It may have attractive colorways, but its chunky exterior does NOT make it "visually endearing."
Caution: The Air Zoom pods pop
After only a couple of uses and miles, many encounter the same problem. And because the Air Zoom units are the heart of the shoe; runners say it's "practically unusable."
