Arch Bridge : A gender-specific mid-foot component helps smooth the transition through propulsion.

Blown Rubber, Forefoot : Is lightweight and flexible. It provides added cushioning while maintaining durability and a smooth ride.

BRS 1000™, Rearfoot : A highly durable carbon rubber we invented for use in out-soles. BRS stands for Blue Ribbon Sports, which was our name before we came up with Nike. The tie-in? Both BRS and Nike last ... and last...

Cuboid Pod™ : An extra foam pod placed in the lateral side of the sole units, helps guiding the foot during the gait.

Cushlon™, Midsole> : Nike's unique mid-sole foam which will provides a firmer road feel that delivers plush, resilient cushioning.

Duralon™, Forefoot : Delivers additional cushioning to the forefoot, which then enables a smooth toe-off. It is very soft, so it might not be as durable as other out-sole materials depending on the surface on which the shoes are worn. It is typically found in the forefoot area of a running shoe, so the durability doesn't affect the overall life of the shoe itself.

Fitsole™ Sockliner : Engineered for under foot cushioning and molds to the shape of the foot for greater fit.

Flywire™ : Is a thread, composed of Vectran, and developed by Nike, used in the upper of a shoe. The goal of Flywire is to minimize weight and maximize support.

Max Air™, Rearfoot : It's just what it sounds like: maximum cushioning. Through blow-molding, more pressurized gas can be put inside even bigger air bags. The bigger the Air-Sole unit, the less traditional cushioning material is needed. More cushioning, less weight. You do the math.

Nike® Air : Those little bags are based on the following formula: Cu=U+CG (Cushioning equals urethane bags filled with compressed gas). Maybe it's not E=MC², but it will do more for your feet than Einstein ever did. It says that because the gas molecules are larger than the pores in the urethane membrane, air can't escape. The result is our light, protective cushioning.

Nike® + : A pocket under the sockliner for secure placement of Nike+ sensor. Connected to Nike Sportband or Apple iPod Series for on screen display of : Information on time, distance, calories burned and pace; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones.

Notched Innersleeve : Inner lining construction that has been designed to enhance comfort and fit.

Open Mesh : With synthetic overlays to provide lightweight, supportive and breathable upper.

Zoom Air™, Forefoot : Two layers of nylon fabric, joined by densely packed fibers, are sealed inside polyurethane. The unit is inflated; pushing apart the fabric and creating tension on the fibers. What does that mean? Zoom Air works by using stress of the shoe's wearer, absorbing it, and refracting the same stress which helps the Zoom insert retain its shape and buoyancy, allowing for quick responsiveness in performance venues, the result is a low-to-the-ground, hyper-responsive speed cushioning you can feel. And it does it in less space than other Air-Sole units.
