Muscular foam cradle

If you’re wondering which part of the Alpha Savage is the midsole, just look at the most vivid foam component of the trainer. Despite its lightweight nature, it forms a solid cradle for the foot through the boosted outriggers on the sides. This structure makes sure that the foot doesn’t wobble throughout the movement.

The Air Max for intensive workout

This unit is like a diamond in the shoe’s foam crown. Embedded under the heel, it offers that responsive comfort which it is known for. It is ready to take all the impact produced throughout an intensive workout. Made of a gas-filled PU container, it is one of the most lightweight yet durable cushioning systems on the market. Moreover, it makes the shoe a real head-turner in the gym and on the street.

Other stylish cross-trainers from Nike that employ the Air Max component are the Air Monarch IV and the Air Max Trainer 1.

More flexibility with the split sole

By looking at the trainer from the side, one will notice that its platform is split into two sections, the forefoot and the heel. The absence of foam between the two not only reduces the trainer’s weight but also makes the platform more pliable.

The ability to bend is crucial for the foot when it comes to working out. Be it a set of burpees or a sprint, the forefoot needs that freedom of movement. That’s why flexibility is further enhanced by the flex grooves in the forefoot.
