Updates to Nike Air Max Dynasty 2
- The Nike Air Max Dynasty 2 is neutral running shoe, but it’s also designed to provide support to supinators or underpronators. It features a sporty and contemporary design. The façade has a smooth quality to it, which is due to the use of fused overlays.
- Tried and true technologies of the Nike brand are used in this model. The upper unit has the Flywire technology, which adjusts the fit accordingly as it accommodates the tightness or looseness of the shoelaces. The mid-sole has the Max Air unit, a visible section in the heel area that’s comprised of compressed air. It adds more responsive cushioning to the foot.
- The outsole has a Waffle design, which encourages better traction on the asphalt. Durable rubber covers the mid-sole and protects it from wear and tear. Flex grooves make sure that the platform is capable of following the natural movements of the foot.
Nike Air Max Dynasty 2 size and fit
Nike has used standard measurements in making the Air Max Dynasty 2. It is true-to-size. The available width for both the men and women’s version is medium. It accommodates those who have medium sized feet. It has a semi-curved shape, which follows the natural curve of the human foot.
A durable rubber material covers the main sole unit of the Nike Air Max Dynasty 2 and protects it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also makes sure to deliver traction, which is important in gaining control over the surfaces.
The Waffle design of the outsole ensures better traction and flexibility. It also reduces the overall weight of the shoe.
The midsole unit of this affordable running footwear features the Phylon foam material. It’s a lightweight and responsive compound that’s made from compressed and molded EVA pellets. It responsibly cushions the foot and protects it from the impact forces.
The Max Air unit is placed in the heel section of the mid-sole. This U-shaped bubble of compressed air provides additional cushioning to the foot.
A molded insole is placed right above the main mid-sole unit. It can be removed or replaced, depending on the preference of the runner.
Mesh panels cover the entire length of the Nike Air Max Dynasty 2’s upper unit. It ensures breathable and secure coverage. It’s also lightweight and flexible.
A traditional lacing system is used in this shoe, but it’s connected to the dynamic Flywire cables. These flexible wires cause the main upper fabric to hug the foot more securely, thus giving an adjustable foot-wrap.
The padded tongue and collar cushions the top section of the foot. It also provides a secure lockdown, thus preventing accidental shoe-removals.
