Size and fit

The Nike Ashin Modern Run is a women's exclusive release with sizes ranging from 5 to 12. Guys who want to cop a pair should go 1.5 sizes up from their standard shoe size. Most users found the kick to fit true to size, but some have claimed that it fit smaller than expected. Hence, going half a size up or better yet trying the pair in the nearest retail store is recommended.

The Nike Ashin Modern Run displays a slimmed-down silhouette for a sleek and stylishly versatile look. Taking design cues from the brand's archive of running sneakers, consumers are instantly treated with modern comfort and effortless good looks as they slip into these kicks. Its slip-on design and breathable, lightweight upper are perfect for people with on-the-go lifestyles. Opt for leggings, joggers or jeans for days you can't be bothered due to packed schedules or keep it laidback by injecting a little bit of sporty flair to flowy skirts and dresses.

Notable Features

The kick's upper is crafted from mesh material with side and heel cups for stability and reinforcements. It utilizes a full cleatie construction that provides a slip-on function. Nylon webbing is placed as long as the length of the tongue with repeating Nike logo as design and branding. All these sit atop a foam midsole and rubber outsole that offers lightweight cushioning and durability respectively.
