Nike SB began in 2002 with a small team and a large vision: Respect the past, support the future, and develop products for modern skateboarding. Today, Nike SB’s goals remain steady: By utilizing game-changing technologies, listening closely to our diverse team of pros, and maintaining dialogue with skaters in the streets of the world, Nike SB inspires and motivates skateboarders everywhere to do what they love, and help them do it better. Nike SB is the intersection of Nike’s commitment to innovation and progression, and the raw energy and creativity that skateboarding creates and demands.
When we put this information into a statistical model, times associated with Vaporfly and Next% shoes are a clear outlier — about 2 percent faster than with the next-fastest shoe. The model estimates the effect of wearing these shoes compared with the effect of wearing other shoes. And there are more varieties of Nike shoes online to choose from. Nike created the Air Zoom Pulse, a shoe designed specifically for nurses, doctors and health providers. The Vomero is Nike’s max cushion offering, but the latest version amps up the responsiveness as well—that makes it a good pick for longer distances where you want enough bounce to feel fast. Zoom Air units and React foam in the midsole provide the cushion, which has long been one of the best parts of this shoe. Flywire cables work within a newly redesigned, good-looking upper that is engineered to support your stride,” according to Nike’s website.
The latest in Nike’s React line of running shoes, the Phantom utilizes the company’s exceptionally soft and responsive React foam, just like its laced up sibling, the Epic React Flyknit 2 The difference, of course, is in the upper: The Phantom’s Flyknit upper is constructed with elastic yarns along the collar and tongue to flex with your foot, and non-elastic yarns in other areas to provide structure and support. There’s also a plastic heel clip to guide your foot, but the real draw here is the minimalist, sock-like fit.
Unlike other brands, Nike does its chemistry in-house, and its foams are the product of years of experimentation. One early success was Lunarlon, a blend of EVA and bouncy nitrile rubber that debuted in the Lunaracer in 2008 and won a following for its springy, responsive feel. More recently, Nike released React foam in the Epic React Flyknit in 2017. Designers honed the formula to maximize cushioning, energy return, and durability while maintaining a low weight. RW lab tests on the Epic React confirm the foam’s impressive balance of softness and bounce, and testers felt a noticeable improvement from Lunarlon-based shoes.
