Highlights of the Nike Victory Elite Trainer

The Victory Elite Trainer is a Nike training shoe that has been crafted to keep up with various training regimens. It delivers the required support for weightlifting and the necessary flexibility for high-impact exercises.

It bears a stretch-woven sleeve that gives a sock-like fit on the foot. It lets the toes flex and splay naturally. Synthetic skins make up a midfoot cage. This structure fortifies the upper for a more rigid support.

The heel is cupped by a flexible TPU clip. It is meant to offer stability while still allowing your foot to move freely. It prevents unwanted heel slippage as well.

A low-profile foam sole gives off a soft underfoot sensation. At the same time, it is firm enough to double as an outsole, which helps maintain the lightweight nature of the trainer.

Its outsole is peppered with rubber pods in the high-wear areas. It boosts durability to stand against the daily abuse of rigorous training. The underfoot features beehive patterned flex grooves for better grip on diverse surfaces.

Size and fit

The Nike Victory Elite Trainer caters to the biomechanics and foot dimensions of men. The sizes at hand extend from US 6 to 15, with half sizes in between running from 6.5 to 12.5. The model comes in just one width option, which is the D - Medium.


The outsole of the Nike Victory Elite Trainer features rubber pods in high-impact zones. They are meant to protect the bottom from wearing out easily. Thanks to its beehive patterned flex grooves, it supplies the foot with solid traction suited for any types of surfaces.


The Nike Victory Elite Trainer has its midsole engineered with a low-profile foam compound. It aims to furnish the wearers with the right amount of softness for comfort. It is also tough enough to serve as an outsole to reduce the weight of the model.


The upper of the Nike Victory Elite Trainer is fabricated with a knitted stretch upper combined with a mesh fabric and synthetic textile. It gives the foot a sock-like yet breathable fit.

The model has a synthetic-skin overlay that creates a structured midfoot cage. It boosts the lateral support to prevent wobbling.

It exhibits a pliant TPU heel clip. It improves stability while allowing the wearers to move without restrictions.

A lace-up closure accentuates the footgear for a secure foothold. It also reinforces the sides and enhances lateral support when the shoelaces are tightened.

The collar and the tongue are padded. They protect the skin against irritations.

A pull tab is sewn into the back. It makes the act of pulling on the shoe easier.
