Updates to Nike Dual Fusion Run 2

  • Several changes are unveiled by Nike in the Dual Fusion Run 2. One very obvious change in the upper is the presence of a network of substantial overlays that they nearly form a separate midfoot panel. It more than helps with support, structure, and provides excellent midfoot hold.
  • A new loop that is connected to the midsole and the laces is now added between the eyelets. This is a proven method of increasing the midfoot hold and getting a more personalized fit.
  • Nike introduces a new open mesh in the new model. The open mesh spells a more breathable run, even in humid conditions.

Nike Dual Fusion Run 2 size and fit

Nike changes the fit of the Dual Fusion Run 2 courtesy of the new midfoot strap and the substantial seamless overlays. The fit in the heel holds the rear very well while the forefoot offers sufficient wiggle room for the toes. There is a much better fit in the midfoot because of the upper changes. Medium is the available width of the shoe. The shoe length is standard in this shoe.


Outsole

The classic Nike Waffle outsole is utilized in this shoe with durable carbon rubber covering the heel section. For better traction, blown rubber blankets the forefoot. There are also several flex grooves to give flexibility to the shoe. A segmented crash pad helps with cushioning and shock-absorbing capabilities of the Dual Fusion Run 2.


Midsole

Nike’s ever-reliable Phylon foam covers the entire midsole for lightweight responsiveness. It is made of EVA foam pellets that are compressed. It is because of this foam that there is a hint of softness in the run. The Phylon material is also used in the Nike Downshifter 7, Nike Dual Fusion Run 3 and other Nike running shoes for road running.


Upper

An open mesh makes certain that the foot is ultra-ventilated. The midfoot is secured by very substantial overlays that have huge cut outs. The cut outs guarantee that air flow remains to be optimal. For that comfortable feel, the ankle collar and tongue are well-padded and covered with plush material. An internal heel stiffener provides structure and stability in the heel.
