    Got a lot of good compliments on it, I think you guys will too.

  • 50 / 100 | Running Shoes Guru

    The Nike Zoom Structure is designed to be a daily stability trainer. However, Nike missed the mark, and they just aren’t worthy of everyday running.

Updates to Nike Air Zoom Structure 22

  • The Nike Air Zoom Structure 22 is a stability shoe that’s created for the roads and for those who want their overpronated foot motion to be corrected. The visual aspect of this product is mostly similar to its predecessor, the Zoom Structure 21, utilizing an uncluttered silhouette and sparing amounts of printed overlays. But this time, the Structure series moves from knitted mesh into engineered mesh territory for a lightweight, breathable and form-fitting fit.
  • Cushioning is given by a full-length platform, which is made up of Cushlon and dual-density Phylon. These elements work together to mitigate impact shock and maintain a balanced stance when running. The external pad is made of two rubber compounds (blown in the forefoot and BRS 1000 in the heel) to help with surface control and abrasion protection.

Nike Air Zoom Structure 22 size and fit

A standard sizing scheme was used in the making of the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22. Such a configuration allows consumers to choose a pair using their usual sizing expectations. When it comes to width, the available options for men are D – Medium, 2E – Wide and 4E – Extra Wide; for women, the only variant is B – Medium.

Outsole

The forefoot section of the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22’s outsole unit is made up of Duralon, a blown rubber compound that offers traction, abrasion defense, as well as added cushioning through its malleable build.

BRS 1000 is a durable carbon rubber layer placed in the high-wear areas of the outsole, particularly the heel. This feature is tasked with resisting the debilitating effects of surface exposure and consistent use.

Midsole

The main part of the midsole unit is the Dynamic Support technology, comprised of Cushlon and dual-density Phylon. This full-length cushioning unit has a forefoot that is responsive and flexible and a heel that is firm and stable. Overpronators are the target of such a configuration.

The heel has a decoupled part that isolated impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle. This design is also meant to smoothen the heel-to-toe transitions.

A plastic case filled with compressed air is placed in the forefoot section of the platform. This Zoom Air unit, which is also present in the Nike Pegasus 35, heightens the cushioning capacity of the midsole, encouraging a well-mitigated step and a reactive forefoot lift.

Upper

Engineered mesh serves as the upper unit of the Nike Air Zoom Structure 22. This cloth-like material is lightweight, flexible and highly breathable. It has an open construction that accommodates environmental air into the foot-chamber, thus maintaining a cool and dry experience for the wearer’s foot.

The Nike Swoosh is printed onto the lateral side, acting as an overlay that keeps the foot in place.

A wraparound heel print with mild padding helps in stabilizing the ankles and the Achilles tendon, thereby preventing sprains or strains.

The Dynamic Flywire Cables connect to the traditional lacing system of the Zoom Structure 22. These stretchy yet durable wires cause the rest of the upper to adapt to the tightening or loosening of the shoelaces, thus giving a customized fit-profile.
