Nike Air Zoom Structure 22
More and more people want to have a pair of attractive running shoes. While most people once accepted that exercise and outdoor gear generally is not going to be as appealing as regular, everyday wear, that is now not so much the case. Brands are starting to take this into consideration as they create gear that is meant to be used outdoors, whether it be for running, hiking, or anything else in between. People are starting to move away from the clunkier, less attractive gear and towards gear that they can wear on a number of occasions- even in places where they are not participating in outdoor activities at all.
People are starting to gravitate towards more attractive running shoes as well. Lots of people like the idea of wearing shoes that will not only feel good but look good in the process too.
Nike is a brand that is known for its athletic gear, and while running might not be the first thing that some people think about when it comes to the products created by Nike, they do have a wide variety of running shoes. The Nike Zoom Structure 22 running shoes were commended for their attractive looks and the many color schemes that they were available in.
However, not all people were as pleased with the shoes’ performance as they were with the way that the shoes looked, which, arguably, is just as important, if not more important, than the way the shoes look. Some people said that the shoes were not too comfortable to run in, and others said that the shoes frequently slipped off their feet as they ran. However, most agreed that the outsole provided a lot of traction, the upper had a lot of breathability, and, perhaps one of the key features in the shoes- the heels help to prevent overpronation, which helps to prevent possible injuries.
Keeping in mind both the positive and negative aspects of these shoes, let’s get into more of what these shoes have to offer in detail.
- These shoes have an attractive design that many people were pleased with
- The rubber on the outsole allows for the runner to get enough traction on the road
- There is protection in the heel of the shoe which helps to prevent overpronation in the runner, which many found to be effective
- The mesh material in the upper part of the shoe provides both comfort and breathability
- Many agreed that the midsole of the shoe was very durable and long-lasting
- Some people said that the heel of the shoe did not fit their feet properly and the shoe sometimes slipped off their feet as they performed activities
- Others said that the sole of the shoe was too stiff to feel comfortable
Some people said that the midsole lacked responsiveness, but others said that the transition from heel to toe during the run felt smoother thanks to the midsole, so it seems to depend on the individual.
The sizing of the shoes was based on a standard system. The men’s version of the shoe offers more variety for people with different shoe widths, however; men can choose between D (Medium), 2E (Wide), and 4E (Extra Wide), whereas women can only choose B (Medium). So, if you are a woman who has wider feet, these shoes might not be the best option for you.
When it came down to the overall comfort of the shoe, reviews tended to be mixed. First, the shoes were not the most comfortable ones out there when they first came out of the box, so many users recommended breaking them in a little bit before taking the shoes out on the road. But even when the shoes were used for running, they never truly felt broken in, according to some. Others believed that the midsole was too firm to actually feel comfortable while running. And the shoes did not provide much responsiveness at all, which did not contribute at all to their comfort.
The heel is rather high off the ground, which did not allow some people to feel as though they were stable and supported. And, some people reported that the shoes frequently slid off their feet because the heel was not very supportive. So, this is something to take into consideration should you choose to purchase the shoes.
The shoes have a sleek design that will allow anyone to wear them wherever they please. Although the design is rather simple, it is one that many people were impressed with upon first sight. The iconic Nike symbol is on the side of the shoe, and the word “Nike” is written across the tongue of the shoe.
These shoes are also available in a variety of colors and color schemes. Men can choose between blue, white with blue accents, gray with black and white accents, black, gray with green and black accents, an off-white with gray and black accents, gray with pink accents, and blue with bright green accents. Women can also choose from a variety of colors, including black with pink accents, orange with black accents, black, white with gray accents, gray with pink accents, and light blue with pink accents.
The outsole of the shoes is made with a rubber material that allows the runner to get a good grip on the ground, whether that be the road, pavement, or gravel. It is very important for a pair of running shoes to get a good grip on the ground because even though they might not be used in tougher conditions, great traction will help to prevent the possibility of injury due to slippage.
-The shoes are available in many different colors to suit different tastes
-The outsole of the shoe is made with Duralon rubber to provide traction and protection against abrasion
-The upper of the shoes are made with a mesh material that is both comfortable and breathable for the wearer
-The midsole has Dynamic Support technology which provides a firm feel and protects against overpronation
However, these shoes have an outsole that provides great traction, which is important in running shoes, and most people who bought the shoes agreed that the material of the upper is both very breathable and flexible. And the fact that the shoes protect against overpronation is a huge plus. Besides that, of course, the shoes come in a very attractive design that was appealing to many.
These shoes have both their positive and negative aspects, and many people agreed that these probably were not the best shoes to choose for running every day.
