The uppers are made of a mesh material to provide better breathability. An innovative lacing system provides secure lockdown and a more customized fit. The distinctive appearance of the airbags makes this model, one of the most iconic iconic symbols Nike.
The Shox incorporates a new feature in the form of small hollow rubber columns in the midsole of the shoe near the heel. Normally, four circular columns are grouped together in the form of a square. According to the company, the rectangular and triangular configurations of Shox provide more stability. Some of the models like the TL series incorporate Shox throughout the midsoles of the shoe. The Shox columns are normally around 25 mm in height.
Apart from absorbing impact and providing cushioning to the runner, the Shox also provide a spring back action that is said to propel the runner forward. The Shox NZ and Shox Turbo come in various different color combinations and are some of the best selling shoes by the company.
The Dunk was originally introduced in the year 1985. It came in numerous colors in low-top and hi-top versions. It was mostly worn by basketball teams in universities and colleges across the country. Nike used the Dunk to spearhead the College Colors program, where they matched the shoe color to that of the teams uniforms.
With the outer sole having a lower profile, the Dunk stays close to the ground and is much lighter than other models. This has made the Dunk quite popular among skateboarders as well. The panel of the shoe has also been revised to improve the performance in a basketball game during blocking or pivoting. The Dunk was eventually reintroduced in 1998. Ever since, it has become an icon in art, culture and fashion.
