Rankings

Nike Shox Avenue SE History

The world first came to know of the Nike Shox technology in 2000. It was originally characterized by four highly responsive rubber columns that were placed directly below the heel. This was a strategic placement because many runners concentrate their energies at the rear part of the foot.

Subsequent releases, however, rose to acknowledge other foot areas where energy is concentrated while in motion, and the rubber columns were strategically placed there.

The Nike Shox Avenue SE is a recent release. While it remains true to the column configuration and placement of the original Shox, it carves its own niche by making its construction lighter and more supportive.
