A padded fuzzy liner that is done with a soft wool does not only provide an easy slide and an extra layer of support but also gives out unique features to the shoe.
Tinker Hatfield started joining Nike after college in the early 1980s. He has designed quite a lot of iconic silhouettes for Nike. He designed the first kick to have a translucent bubble sole, Nike Air Max 1. He also designed quite a few of Michael Jordan’s annual signature sneakers. It is undeniable that Hatfield has a ton of experience in the industry. He has become one of the most innovative athletic shoe designers of all time. Thus, he continues to design shoes with great grounds, including Nike CruzrOne.
The creation of the Nike CruzrOne was sparked through a conversation with Nike’s co-founder Phil Knight and Hatfield. As Hatfield asked Knight about his daily eight-mile walk to which Knight responded, “ I do not walk. I run, just really slowly." This exchange of conversation has prompted Hatfield to design a shoe for athletic people that changes over time.
Hatfield noticed that the foot moves differently at a slow speed as he looked at the running shoe Knight uses when he runs, or “cruises” as Hatfield addresses it. He finds that there is a greater heel to toe transition. To meet the needs of the slower runners, Nike CruzrOne was created.
