Updates to the Nike Train Speed 4

  • This iteration took a complete departure from the earlier version. This model utilizes a synthetic leather cut-out that covers the mesh.
  • Instead of a Zoom Air cushioning system found in its predecessor, the Train Speed 4 has an injected-unit foam midsole infused with recessed TPU in the forefoot for lightweight comfort and flexibility.

Nike Train Speed 4 Updates

Surface control-optimized outsole

The Nike Train Speed 4 delivers traction via the aggressively patterned treads on the rubber outsole. They ensure optimal surface control regardless of the ground conditions.

Deep flex grooves are added, providing additional flexibility to the foot. They essentially allow the sole unit to be more accommodating of the natural movement capacity.

Nike Train Speed 4 Outsole

Responsive lightweight cushioning

An injected-unit foam midsole is employed, thereby delivering lightweight cushioning. The forefoot area is equipped with recessed TPU, providing both responsiveness and natural foot flexion.

This Nike workout shoe has a low heel drop of 4 mm and a wide forefoot size. It gives support that’s close-to-the-ground.

Nike Train Speed 4 Midsole

Impact-absorbent insole

The Nike Train Speed 4’s fabric-made inner sleeve covers the top of the foot, giving wearers' feet a snug fit. It also absorbs sweat and keeps feet dry.

The removable foam insole absorbs impact from the foot. It lessens the risk of discomfort or injury to the knee and ankle.

Integrated breathable upper

The low-cut profile of the Nike Train Speed 4 is emphasized by its cut-out-designed upper. It is made of synthetic leather and integrated with breathable mesh.

Nike’s proprietary Flywire technology system of diagonal and crosshatched cables offers a form-fitting feel. It locks down the foot during dynamic and explosive movements.

Lightweight tongue

Its lightweight and breathable thin tongue and lightly padded collar secure the ankle, preventing unwanted heel slippage. These parts do this without weighing the foot down.
