Nike's Air technology is made up of pressurized air inside of tough, yet flexible bags. These compartments compress in order to reduce the force of impact as you step down. The pressurized air then returns the compartments to their original shape as you pick up your foot. These air sole units are strategically positioned in the midsole beneath the heel and/or forefoot. The primary benefits you will receive from Nike Air include:
- Lightweight cushioning due to the use of pressurized air
- A durable and versatile support system designed to be long-lasting
This technology has been regularly enhanced over the years, and continues to be a favorite among many athletes.
