Good to know
- The Air Zoom Winflo series from Nike has cemented a good reputation in the market. That is why the seventh iteration of the lineup features some reconstruction. One of these is the shoe’s updated mesh upper. It aims to offer better fit and ventilation.
- Another revamped component of the shoe is its Air Zoom units in the heel and forefoot. These have been redesigned to deliver more cushioning to the underfoot.
- Contrary to its predecessor, the Air Zoom Winflo 7 has an increased stack height. This is to add to the springy feel of the running platform.
Similar to most neutral running shoes, the Nike Air Zoom Winflo 7 features a full-length rubber outsole. Such outsole composition produces not only superior ground traction but also resistance from abrasion. It also exhibits flexible qualities that permit the natural flex of the foot. Lastly, the rubber outsole attenuates shock effectively, protecting the foot from strain or injury.
The midsole compartment of the Air Zoom Winflo 7 features Nike’s renowned Zoom Air technology. This midsole innovation is present at the heel and forefoot of the running platform. These have been updated to supply the shoe with better cushioning. Given this, support and comfort are pronounced, especially during long runs.
The Zoom Air unit in the forefoot of the shoe has been fashioned to be larger. This is intended to give the foot more connection with the cushioning for an improved underfoot feel.
For the shoe’s stack height, it has not increased for no reason. This is largely due to the added foam in the shoe’s midsole, providing the wearer better impact protection and plushness.
The upper of the Air Zoom Winflo 7 is comprised of mesh upper. This textile has a number of perforations that act as the airflow system of the running shoe, keeping the foot cool and dry. The mesh material also has a pliable property that allows it to envelope around the foot securely. It is also very light, thus preventing drag.
Since the shoe aims to provide more support than its predecessor, it features a heel counter. It holds the foot securely in place, eliminating unwanted shoe removal.
