Updates to the Nike Flex Supreme TR5
- The outsole of this iteration now features a hexagonal pattern that facilitates natural foot movements. Specific areas have been reinforced with rubber pods to provide better traction.
Enhanced outsole traction
The exposed midsole makes up most of the platform in the Flex Supreme TR 5. It is made of abrasion-resistant foam and features a hexagonal tread pattern that allows the foot to move naturally.
Instead of flex grooves, this particular model features slits. They are designed to increase the surface area of the foam and improve traction.
The shoe also has rubber pods located in strategic areas such as the heel, toe, and parts or the medial and lateral sides. The rubber compound is resilient, durable and capable of providing better traction on most surfaces.
The midsole of the Flex Supreme TR 5 features both firm and soft foams. The soft foam absorbs shock and lessens the impact to prevent injury. As for the firm foam, it aims to keep the foot stable during workouts.
The shoe comes with a molded foam insole that follows the shape of the foot to deliver a comfortable bed. It also adds another layer of shock absorption to protect the foot from injuries.
The Nike Flex Supreme TR 5 utilizes mesh and synthetic materials for its upper. The mesh material ensures that the foot is ventilated while the synthetic material retains the structural integrity of the shoe’s façade.
Snug lacing system
The lace-up closure now features Flywire, a proprietary thread technology by Nike that integrates with the laces to deliver a snug fit. In this model, this structure is only present in the first two eyelets closest to the toe box. When tightened, the laces pull on the Flywire, which results in a snug yet supportive fit at the broadest part of the foot.
The shoe has a lightly padded tongue with a single slot where the flat laces pass through to keep it secure.
Supportive ankle section
Foam pods on the collar support the ankle and keep the foot from accidentally slipping out during workouts.
