Adaptive Fit : Customizable internal sleeve system that wraps under the arch and around the midfoot for increased arch support and a dynamic fit. With floating heel clip to provides additional stability.

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...

Cushlon™ Crash Pad : Located at the bottom lateral heel. A gender-specific highly decoupled unit which reduces shock at impact and reduces the degree and rate of pronation : Cushlon™ : 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.

EVA Sockliner : Ethylene Vinyl Acetate : For great step-in and motion comfort.

Phylon™, Midsole : 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 microbial. What kind of dolls were they?

Nike® Plus : 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.

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

Stroble Last : The upper is attached to a thin material that is patterned on the shape or silhouette of the midsole. Traditional strobel lasts use a thin cloth material, while newer variations use a thin sheet of EVA for a more cushioned feel.

Waffle Fill™ : Rubber sole compound for enhanced traction.

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.
