Enhanced traction for most surfaces

A rubber outsole lines the underside of this Nike trainer. This compound is made to be durable, so it does not easily get worn out. The tread pattern on this model features fine lines that enhance the traction on most types of surfaces, especially in indoor gyms.

The forefoot section features multidirectional flex grooves. They aid in foot flexion and facilitate quick changes of direction.

Responsive cushioning

The Zoom Train Command employs the Nike Zoom Air technology. This lightweight platform uses pressurized air and thin stretch fibers to deliver a responsive cushioning. It is engineered to be closer to the ground to improve stability without sacrificing comfort and shock absorption. Another popular trainer for men that employs a low-profile midsole with the Zoom unit is the Nike Zoom Train Complete.

The footwear utilizes the TPU midfoot wrap to provide support during side-to-side movements. It is part of the lacing system, which results in a snugger fit when the laces are tightened.

The insoles of the Nike training shoes list four activities, namely Lift, Jump, Run and Cut, to determine which activities a particular shoe is meant to be used for. In this model, Run and Jump are highlighted to signify that this trainer is designed especially for running and plyometrics.

Abrasion-resistant upper

Making up the upper of the Nike Zoom Train Command is an abrasion-resistant textile. This fabric does not readily get frayed when subjected to friction. It is also breathable to keep the inside well-ventilated. The synthetic overlays enhance the durability of the material in the high-wear areas such as the toe box, the side panels, and the rear section.

The Nike Zoom Train Command's lacing system

The trainer features a lace-up closure that integrates with the Flywire cables. These thin, yet strong cords become taut when the laces are pulled, which results in enhanced lateral support.

An inner sleeve is designed to deliver a sock-like experience. It provides a snug fit to prevent accidental shoe removal while the user is in motion.
