The Nike Flex TR 8's midsole

The Nike Flex TR 8 employs a dual-density foam midsole. This type of cushioning has firm and soft areas, each serving different purposes. The firm portion supports the foot, adding lateral stability. As for the soft part, it attenuates shock that keeps the foot comfortable and protected. A very similar Flex unit is used in another women's workout shoe from Nike, called the Flex Supreme TR 6.

Snug lacing system

The footgear features no-sew medial and lateral panels that integrate with the lacing system. Together with the Flywire cables at the midfoot, they bring a snug but non-restricting fit. The panels and the wires also enhance the lateral support provided by the upper.

The lightly padded tongue protects the instep from the laces.
