If you are feeling inspired and wanting to purchase a Nike running shoe, we have compiled the best running shoes from the leading sports brand for you to choose from.
Since 1987, Nike invented AIR, now known as Air Zoom, a cushioning system providing energy return and comfort to the runner. Their running shoes have advanced Flyknit and Flywire upper construction to allow for natural foot movement and support. Recently the brand has debuted “Vapourweave” which is a blend of TPU and nylon, a lighter non-absorbent material, which prevents sweat absorption of the shoe leaving you with a lighter ride throughout your training session and race.
