The sneakers are durable, supportive, and easy to clean. Nike’s latest cushioning system debuted on the Joyride Run in 2019. The shoe uses four pods filled with TPE beads that compress to absorb shocks. The pouches are wrapped in SR02, a super-soft foam (normally too soft to use in shoes) that helps smooth the gaps between the pouches. Although unique, Nike’s not the first to develop a beads-in-pouches system—Puma created a similar platform in 2017—and we found the Joyride delivers unremarkable performance for a steep price. It’s not included here. Now, according to the Times, the high-tech shoes may actually give runners more of an advantage than it was initially thought.
The Air Zoom Structure makes a good pick for runners who need some extra guidance in their stride. This shoe provides it with Nike’s Dynamic Support system, a layer of firmer foam along the inside portion of the midsole that counters overpronation, and an overlay on the upper that stiffens the heel of the shoe. In addition, Flywire cables and a partial foot wrap give you a dialed-in fit, and blown rubber cushioning and a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot absorb shocks without sacrificing energy return.
Just in time for back-to-school shopping, Nike today officially announced its entry into the subscription service market with the launch of a sneaker club” for kids called Nike Adventure Club The new program is specifically designed to make shopping easier for parents who struggle to keep up with their quickly growing children’s shoe needs. Instead of taking kids to the store and trying on pair after pair to try to find something the child likes, the new Nike Adventure Club will instead ship anywhere from four pairs to a dozen pairs of shoes per year, depending on which subscription tier parents choose.
Your average group fitness class is a big sometimes-beautiful (sometimes-decidedly-not-beautiful, but that’s a story for another day) mess of fitness ideas, an effort to pack a bevy of movements into one hour of work. And if you wanted to get super-precise, you’d actually need a different sneaker for each. You’d use the running shoe that most people wear for any treadmill work, but then you’d want a lifting shoe for some deadlifts and squats, then something with a bit more cushioning for the box jumps, and something with tight lockdown (basketball shoe, anyone?) for the skater lunges.
