Excellent traction on different surfaces
The outsole of the FS Lite Run 4 stands out because of the unique hexagonal lugs that basically cover the entire underfoot surface.
It brings excellent traction on different surfaces, while flexibility is also very good. Nike adds rubber pods in distinct areas that need it the most for durability.
Lite Run 4 offers responsive cushioning and impact absorption
A dual-layer construction of the midsole mixes cushioning, responsiveness, and impact absorption. Nike utilizes a soft foam on top of a firmer foam to get the right blend in this shoe.
As both layers of foam covered the entire midsole, these also help the shoe when making the transition from landing to take-off.
Nike FS Lite Run 4 delivers breathable coverage
The upper of the Nike FS Lite Run 4 is very simple and minimalist in nature. A very breathable mesh delivers breathable coverage and just the right amount of support.
An internal heel counter locks down the rear for security. Nike also offers a removable insole for more cushioning. A traditional lace-up closure keeps the fit secured all throughout the run.
