Cushioned yet steady

A full-length foam makes up the midsole of the Nike Tech Trainer. This cushioning platform attenuates shock to keep the foot protected and comfortable. It also offers a steady base needed for strenuous exercises.

Sock-like fit

The Nike Tech Trainer utilizes neoprene and suede materials for its upper. Neoprene makes up a majority of the façade, giving it a sock-like fit. It keeps the foot supported, but also allows it to expand throughout the day.

Suede overlays reinforce the high-wear areas such as the perimeter of the toe box and the heel. Aside from protecting the underlying neoprene, they also provide lateral support at the forefoot and cup the rearfoot to keep it steady during dynamic movements.

Padded and secure

The lace-up closure uses wide webbed eyelets. They wrap the medial and lateral sides of the upper, so when the laces are cinched, the components are drawn closer to the foot thereby amplifying support for side-to-side movements.

The footgear sports a bootie design with a high apex that keeps the instep protected. The collar is lightly padded to keep the heel locked down and prevent accidental shoe removal. A pull loop is attached to the back of the collar. Wearers could utilize it to pull up the shoe quickly.

Reliable outsole

The Nike Tech Trainer employs a gum rubber outsole. This compound is hard-wearing to endure training on various indoor and outdoor surfaces.

The rubber extends to the front of the shoes, creating a bumper that protects the toes during burpees and sled pushes. The material also wraps up the lateral and the medial sides of the midfoot to deliver support for side-to-side movements. It has nubs, allowing it to grip the rope during rope climbs.

It features hexagonal lugs that promote multi-directional traction. It also features flex grooves at the forefoot area which promote natural foot flexion.
