Multisurface outsole traction

The underside of the Nike Air Max Typha features a rubber compound. This material is hard-wearing, flexible and provides traction on most surfaces. It extends to the front of the shoe to protect the toes from impact during workouts.

Flex grooves are found in the forefoot area to promote plantar flexion. A multi-directional tread pattern lines the outsole for enhanced traction and durability of the rubber.

Shock-absorbent midsole

A full-length cushioning serves as the footbed of the Nike Air Max Typha. This compound protects the foot by absorbing the shock upon impact.

At the heel is the Air Max unit which enhances the shock-absorbing properties in the rear section. This technology uses trapped air to attenuate shock during repetitive landings. It is also designed to be lightweight and resilient to allow the midsole to return to its original form quickly and protect the foot from stress and fatigue.

Nike Air Max Typha Midsole

Breathable upper

The Nike Air Max Typha employs a warp-knit material for the upper. This type of fabric conforms to the shape of the foot to deliver reliable support. It is tightly woven to give the façade its structure but is still breathable to keep the foot chamber well ventilated.

Reinforced lateral support

It uses a traditional lace-up closure with the Flywire integrated into the two eyelets closest to the vamp. The Flywire is comprised of thin yet strong cables that reinforce the lateral support when the laces are tightened. In this model, the technology braces the broadest part of the foot during dynamic movements.

Nike Air Max Typha Lacing System

Snug rear section

The rear section features the injected thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) overlay. This structure serves as an external heel clip that anchors the foot to the midsole and prevents unwanted movements.
