Cushion. The midsole of the Audacity 2016 is made of full-length phylon. It has an Air Max unit strategically placed at the heel so that harsh landings can be effectively cushioned.

Traction. The multidirectional pattern on the rubber outsole is basically herringbone with geometric modifications in the middle. These modifications are small circular and oval shapes arranged in such a way that they look like closely laid out pebbles. This pattern is actually a carryover from 2015’s Air Max Audacity model.

Lockdown. Lockdown is in part dependent on how the shoe fits, and the shoe is said to be generally true to size. Should there be a need for adjustments, the wearer can easily change how tightly the shoelaces are tied.

To provide support at the rear part, there is a TPU heel counter. The base of the shoe is also a bit extended along the lateral side so that it can serve as an outrigger that provides support to quick directional changes and aggressive footwork.
