Updates to Nike Flex Supreme TR 6

  • The Flex Supreme TR 6 is a cross-training shoe from Nike designed exclusively for women. It pulls cues from its predecessor as it retained the technology utilized in the sole unit. The midsole is made of a dual-density foam that provides steadiness and shock absorption.
  • The outsole is still made of foam with rubber pods in the key areas for traction. The sipings throughout the underside promote natural foot movements.
  • The most obvious modification is found in the upper. The fabric of the Flex Supreme TR 5 has been replaced with two different types of mesh to bring pliability at the forefoot, and support at the midfoot and rear sections.
  • The Flywire cables have also been adjusted and now appear higher up in the lacing system. They are also more exposed compared to the design of the older model.

Outsole

The Nike Flex Supreme TR 6 employs a foam rubber outsole. This compound is engineered to be durable to hold out against rough surfaces. The high-wear areas are strengthened with rubber pods that also add traction.

The underside features a hexagonal tread pattern that provides grip in different directions. It also has sipings that allow the outsole to expand and facilitate natural foot flexion.

Midsole

A dual-density foam makes up the midsole of the Nike Flex Supreme TR 6. This material utilizes a soft foam core that attenuates the shock while the firm portion adds steadiness to the platform.

Inside is a molded foam insole. This lightweight material provides maximum coverage of the sole for prolonged comfort.

Upper

The upper of the Nike Flex Supreme TR 6 is constructed using two types of mesh. The stretchy fabric is used in the vamp and throat area to accommodate natural foot movements. The non-stretchy mesh is placed in the midfoot and extends to the back, delivering lateral support to the foot. Both fabrics are breathable to keep the foot chamber aerated.

The Flywire cables integrate with the lace-up closure. When the laces are tightened, the filaments get taut and heighten the steadiness needed for side-to-side motions.

Ensuring that the foot is comfortable all around are the lightly padded tongue and collar. The tongue prohibits the laces from irritating the instep. As for the collar, it locks the foot down and prevents chafing in the ankle area.
