Provides long-lasting durability and traction

Nike’s XDR Rubber is assembled in a tread pattern that’s workable on abrasive hard court surfaces. The XDR compound on the heel and forefoot in a multisurface and herringbone pattern provides long-lasting durability and traction.

It borrows its tread design and flex grooves from the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X. Such a pattern is arranged to grant natural foot movement. 

Rubber reinforcements

Additional traction is placed along the perimeter of the outsole to strengthen such region from immediate wear.

There are polymer triangles placed on the perimeter of the outsole that’s susceptible to quick wear. This added source of traction is meant to improve stability.

Lightweight Phylon midsole

The lightweight Phylon midsole is assigned to take up the weight of the impact every time the foot hits the ground.  This dense and durable foam is made of tiny EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) pellets. Because of its resilient quality, it’s designed to deliver cushioning for that court-ready comfort.

Embedded in the heel is a flat polyurethane bag that’s packed with pressurized air and densely-lined fibers. These fibers are hyper-responsive as they spring back quickly between footstrikes and midstance.

TPU foot frame

TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) foot frame stretches from heel to toe to deliver firm footing especially during sharp cuts and aggressive turns.

Breathable and lightweight

Secure fit

The knitted filaments that make up the upper tighten up the fit and work to provide 360-degree support. The key source of stability comes from the hidden device called the Dynamic Fit System.
