Overview

New version of the Structure Triax is lighter than the last model and has a few tweaks to improve the ride. The cushioning is now Zoom Air throughout which should give a more responsive ride. The heel has also been tweaked to give more softness and stability from heel strike. Test reports appearing here as soon as we have them back in!

Very comfortable ride

Probably this is not the first shoe you would think about as midfoot landing runner. It is also not the most sexy shoe witin the Nike collection. But it is definitely a great shoe! A lot of cushioning in the front and middle part of the shoe, and still giving more than reasonable response to be able to keep in touch with the road. And the heel part is not too bulky. It is one of my all-time favourites, especially on the long slow runs it shows its strength. Ok, for fast trainings I prefer other types, but you still can use these. I even ran a half marathon with it.

Good shoes

They have alot of cushioning also a cushion point around the ball of foot, alot of cushioning there and the sole is very thick and absorbs shock well, soft and smoothe feel.

They are very breathable all over and quite flexible. They feel chunky but they don't look as chunky as they feel.

the front is roomy for the toes although the rest is cushioned and snug.

overall im impressed because they do the job of cushioning and absorbing shock well, not heavy and very comfortable and soft on tarmac.
Find the perfect shoe for you
