Smoother transitions with Air Zoom Structure 20 outsole

The 20th installment of the Zoom Structure continues to use the honeycomb outsole layout that now covers the shoe all the way to the heel on the inner side. A crash rail that extends from the heel to the forefoot gives the shoe better and smoother transitions.

Two types of rubber deliver a nice blend of traction and durability. A soft blown rubber offers grip while the hard carbon rubber in the heel and midfoot provides long-lasting work.

Air Zoom Structure 20 three-density foam

The midsole of the Air Zoom Structure 20 is made up of a three-density foam. An injection molded EVA occupies a large portion of the midsole for main cushioning duties. On the medial side is another layer of dense foam for better support.

And finally, the third wedge of foam running from the heel to the midfoot provides even more support to a collapsing arch. This midsole layout is what Nike calls the Dynamic Support System. It gives the shoe a stable ride for moderate overpronators.

Nike's Flymesh upper

Nike brings back the Flymesh upper in the Structure 20. It gives excellent ventilation and support and allows Nike to completely do away with overlays as the Flymesh itself gives enough structure and integrity to the upper.

There are Flywire cables on both sides that are connected to the laces and the midsole for improved security and midfoot hold. An inner heel counter helps lock down the foot from extra movements.

Nike packs the tongue with enough foam to prevent the cords from causing irritation. A removable sockliner adds cushioning support and a little responsiveness to the shoe.
