The safety element of reliable surface grip is ensured through traction nodes which are shaped as a pentagon. Nike have implemented a crash rail also made of rubber, which can be located on the lateral outsole. This innovative feature breaks the impact of surface contact, delivering a transition that is smooth and comfortable. The improved technology, and added quantity of the flex grooves found of the Nike Downshifter 6, means the range of motion from heel to toe feels more natural.
It is also very resilient, and can withstand the impacts of different terrain, and elements. It is accompanied by a removable insole which supports the arch, and it gives an extra layer of protection to the foot. The entire midsole is protected by the rubber outsole so you do not have to be concerned about wear and tear.
This improves the durability of the shoe, and helps maintain a neutral odor. The overlays which are seamless, ensure outside water does not enter the shoe, resulting in dry feet at all times. Your exercise will not be prohibited because of damp conditions, broadening the window of opportunity to be outside.
This gives the runner the opportunity to maximize their potential. A padded collar means added comfort across the lower ankle area. Some users noted the shoe is narrower than expected. Overall, these lightweight shoes provide a comfortable wear whether they are used for running down the street or running errands.
The woven overlay responds to movement in the toe area, adapting to sudden movements, whilst still providing support. Additionally, the flex grooves in the outsole accommodate your pronation, leaving your range of motion unrestricted from its natural stance.
