The sneakers are durable, supportive, and easy to clean. In addition to their latest designs, Nike stays true to tradition and style with the Cortez and Ebernon. The popular Cortez is one of the original shoes made by the brand. While it was originally made as a running shoe, the Cortez can be dressed down for day and up for night. The Nike Ebernon takes casual and comfortable to a whole new level. Choose one of the multiple colors of the Ebernon, ranging from purple and pink for women and red and blue for men, and you’ll be ready to turn heads.

He added that a pair of running shoes could make a big difference to her in the future. The result of this collaboration is a slip-on sneaker that’s durable, comfortable, and easy to clean.

The shoes also feature midsole foam that researchers say contributes to increased running economy.

Running styles are Nike’s bread and butter. From the original Air Max 1 to forward-thinking lines like the Nike Air Presto, Nike Flyknit, Nike Roshe, and everything in between, Nike has so many running shoe styles for both men and women to choose from.

Many brands offer woven mesh designs, but Nike’s features are built to match the way your foot moves as you stride. They create a secure, sock-like fit where you need it and greater breathability and flexibility in other areas—all without piecing together different materials. Twice a year, Nike will ship out a prepaid bag where parents can send back their kids’ worn shoes, which will either be donated to families in need if in good condition or recycled through Nike Grind , a program that separates out the rubber, foam, leather and textile blends, grinds them into granules and incorporates those into new products, including footwear, apparel and play surfaces.
