Better traction and durability

Nike keeps it basic in the outsole as it uses its staple Waffle design for traction and durability. Giving the Air Sequent a little more flexibility are the articulated flex grooves in the midfoot to the forefoot.

Sequent’s Phylon foam provides soft cushioning

The midsole features soft cushioning with a touch of responsiveness due to the injection-molded Phylon foam. Nike’s proprietary foam is also very light with moderate durability. The transition through the gait cycle is enhanced as it covers the entire midsole.

Beneath the midsole foam in the heel is a U-shaped Air Max zoom unit, which is also present in the Nike Sequent 4. The Air Max offers the most cushioning and best shock-absorbing capability among air units in Nike’s technology. It makes landing on the heel a treat.

Nike Air Max Sequent is a breathable shoe

The totally seamless upper is an exercise in simplicity. Besides the very breathable mesh, the Swoosh logo is basically what stands out in this section.

It has moderate padding in the collar with a very thin tongue that is lined with soft and plush fabric. An internal heel counter provides structure and security in the heel.
