  • The interior of this running shoe has a smooth fabric lining for a more comfortable wearing experience

Nike Flex technology

The outsole unit features the Nike Flex technology. The surface of this section essentially has nodes that are meant to distribute pressure when landing the foot on the ground. The minimal design and grooves in between these nodes allow for natural flexibility for the foot.

Rubber can be found on the outsole unit, but it’s not as prominent as other outsole rubber units. It can provide traction and protection from wear, but it’s not the premium rubber outsole that’s prevalent in most shoes.

Smoother transitions with Flex Fury 2 midsoles

A Dual-density midsole delivers responsible cushioning and smoother transitions through the gait cycle. It’s a durable material that carries the foot well while maintaining the level of flexibility that’s expected of the Flex Fury 2.

A cushioned insole adds a bit more underfoot comfort. It’s a helpful addition that makes the platform more agreeable and reactive to the cushioning needs of the runner.

Breathable and durable upper

The upper fabric featured in the Flex Fury 2 is certainly sturdier than the previous version’s. It’s soft, responsive to the movements of the foot, and breathable enough. It’s a comfortable material that’s made of high-quality mesh and textiles.

Nike Flywire cables ensure the fit

The Flywire cables are made of high-quality materials, so they’re not off to be easily damaged even when they’re exposed to the sides of the shoe. The cables themselves help in the tightening and loosening of the upper unit because they respond to the adjustments made to the shoelaces.
