Zoom Air®, Rearfoot n 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.
