This shoe is built for the neutral runner and features a breathable mesh and synthetic upper with a thin comfort tongue and plush collar for support.
You have an EVA midsole and that Air Max heel unit back here. You can see it kinda has a transparent look to it. It's gonna give you plenty of shock absorption.
- Nike delivers a version of the Air Max that mainly offers the basics in a really good-looking package. In the Sequent, Nike offers a shoe that is supremely breathable because of the mono mesh.
- On top of the breathability is well-designed interior that provides tons of comfort without too much cushioning. By using soft and plush fabric, runners can enjoy their runs or every day chores in this exceptionally comfortable shoe.
- The shock-absorbing capabilities of the shoe are enhanced as it uses the iconic Air Max Zoom unit. Runners should also feel a good balance of cushioning and responsiveness as the Phylon foam runs the entire length of the midsole.
- Nike’s reliable Waffle outsole continues to offer durability and traction for hordes of Nike fans. This outsole is featured in the Air Max Sequent for tested and reliable grip on the road.
The fit of the Nike Sequent is designed for those with narrow to average foot widths. There is solid heel and midfoot security while the forefoot gives just enough space for some wiggle room. The almost minimal upper gives a nice locked down support that is still comfortable. It runs true to size.
Nike keeps it basic in the outsole as it uses its staple Waffle design for traction and durability. Giving the Air Sequent a little more flexibility are the articulated flex grooves in the midfoot to the forefoot.
The midsole features soft cushioning with a touch of responsiveness due to the injection-molded Phylon foam. Nike’s proprietary foam is also very light with moderate durability. The transition through the gait cycle is enhanced as it covers the entire midsole.
Beneath the midsole foam in the heel is a U-shaped Air Max zoom unit, which is also present in the Nike Sequent 4. The Air Max offers the most cushioning and best shock-absorbing capability among air units in Nike’s technology. It makes landing on the heel a treat.
The totally seamless upper is an exercise in simplicity. Besides the very breathable mesh, the Swoosh logo is basically what stands out in this section. It has moderate padding in the collar with a very thin tongue that is lined with soft and plush fabric. An internal heel counter provides structure and security in the heel.
