Nike Zoom Structure Triax 14

Using the same proven design last, the Nike Zoom Structure Triax will surely continue to be a successful support daily trainer. Most noticeable changes are on the shoe upper, namely; Bootie construction, redesign eyelets and a more supportive flywire construction, overall a more secure, comfortable and lighter upper design while maintaining the midsole/outsole configuration.

ZebarPlusGlossry2011NikeZoomStructureTriax14GlossaryArch Bridge : A gender-specific midfoot component helps smooth the transition through propulsion.

BRS 1000™ : A highly durable carbon rubber we invented for use in outsoles. 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.

Dual-layer Ortholite Sockliner : Insert with Fitsole geometry sits underfoot and provides additional cushioning and comfort : Fitsole : Engineered for under foot cushioning and molds to the shape of the foot for greater fit.

Duralon : 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.

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.

Nike + : A pocket under the sockliner for secure placement of Nike+ sensor. Connected to iPod nano, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones.

Notched Inner Sleeve : Placed in the midfoot and forefoot is for improved comfort and fit.

Phylon : Originally used in dolls, it is a heated and compressed EVA foam cushioning compound that is light, resilient and capable of giving a soft, smooth ride. As a bonus, it is non-yellowing and impervious to attack from water and microbials.

Segmented Medial Post : Located in the midfoot area of the medial side, made of a denser two-piece foam unit to reduces excess pronation.

TPU : Thermoplastic Urethane : It can be fine-tuned for optimal stiffness and is used to make stabilizing plates.

Waffle Fill™ : Rubber compound outsole for enhanced traction.

Zoom Air®, Forefoot n Heel : Cushioning system : 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? I don't know, but 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.
