Compared with adidas’ boost technology, Nike’s zoom Air technology is more widely used, not only in sports shoes and basketball shoes, but even in the field of casual shoes.
- The Birth of Nike Zoom Air
After more than a decade of research and development, Nike Zoom Air debuted 20 years ago and continues to provide responsive low-profile cushioning that athletes can feel. Athletes of every caliber want to feel responsiveness under their feet – which Zoom Air technology delivers.
Zoom Air made its original performance debut in three styles: the Nike Air Marauder football cleat, the Nike Air Go LWP basketball shoe, and soon after, the Nike Air Zoom LWP running shoe. Ever since, athletes have trained, competed and won in shoes featuring its responsive cushioning.
2. What is Nike zoom Air ?
Nike zoom Air is our innovative and explosive cushioning system designed for speed and agility. The technology uses pressurized air and tightly stretched fibers to absorb impact and then snap back for fast movement and reduced stress on muscles, joints, and tendons.
3. How to be faster
Tightly stretched tensile fibers are knit inside a pressurized Nike Air unit, giving the Zoom Air cushioning its snappy responsiveness. Each time an athlete’s foot touches down, the fibers compress to cushion the impact before quickly springing back to their original state, generating an explosive, powerful response off the ground. Whether elite athletes are racing or training, they look to Zoom Air for a fast, responsive ride and the snappy, quick-off-the ground feel that helps optimize their quest for speed.
