Durable and relentless protection from the Air Relentless 6

Durable rubber is used in the Nike Air Relentless 6. It protects the rest of the sole unit from the potentially debilitating effects of surface exposure and continued use. Traction is also a part of its service.

Flex grooves make the platform more adherent to the natural movements of the human foot. They are most helpful when it comes to the toe-off phase, which is the part where the foot bends the most.

Shock-absorbent cushioning

The Nike Air is a high-quality cushioning material that’s meant to carry the foot responsibly throughout the running session. Aside from cushioning the foot, it also attenuates impact shock during the landing phase, and launches the foot forward with ease due to its responsive nature.

A foam insole has been added right above the main foam unit of the Nike Air Relentless 6. It delivers additional underfoot cushioning and protection. It can be replaced or removed entirely, depending on the preference of the wearer.

A supportive and breathable upper

The upper unit of the Air Relentless 6 uses a breathable mesh. It covers the foot snugly and securely. It won’t tear apart easily because it’s durable and long-lasting. It also accommodates air into the foot chamber, essentially ventilating the foot within.

The dynamic mag-web is a series of visible fabric-strands that are connected to the lacing system. They make the coverage more customizable by adapting to the tightening or loosening of the shoelaces.
