Multisurface outsole grip

The Nike Air Zoom Elevate leverages the grippy properties of rubber throughout its entire bottom. It results in a secure foothold on different types of surfaces. It is also meant to enhance durability. The tread is marked with flex grooves to promote natural flexion.

The Nike Air Zoom Elevate's midsole

In the heart of the Nike Air Zoom Elevate is a lightweight CMEVA foam component. It offers energy transfer that adds extra bounce to the step upon foot strike.

The 6-sided Zoom Air technology is employed in the heel to provide quicker responsiveness to training-specific motions. It works by using strong and tensile synthetic fibers which can be found between plastic that react like mattress springs when pressure is applied.

Sock-like fit upper

The Nike Air Zoom Elevate has a full cleatie construction for a snug, sock-like fit. It also gives support during side-to-side movements.

It is made of a mesh fabric that lets in air to keep the interiors cool and fresh. A polyurethane coating is applied in the high-wear areas to reinforce the material.

Pull tabs are attached to the heel collar and the apex since the shoe has a tighter mouth than other athletic footgear. They make pulling on the footwear easier.

Enhanced lateral support

A traditional lacing system locks the foot down. It also improves lateral support as the shoelaces are pulled taut.
