Slimmer construction provides women with a shoe that fits better and translates to a more responsive skate shoe. The Zoom Air unit in the heel helps absorb hard impacts and bounces back quickly which is great for anyone smashing stairs or hitting big gaps during their skate sessions. Grippy herringbone tread lasts a long time while the vulcanized sole gives you a flexible shoe with enhanced board feel. Carefully planned stitching around the toe-box means more flip tricks before the shoe breaks down. This is one situation where functionality is just as high of a priority as fashion. Be street-style savvy while skate park ready.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
Herringbone Tread - The herringbone pattern is frequently used in basketball shoes for its ability to provide optimal traction on smooth surfaces.
Zoom Air Unit in Sockliner - Nike Zoom cushioning is incredibly thin and brings the foot closer to the ground for enhanced stability, especially during quick cuts and multi-directional movements.
After impact, the tightly stretched fibers inside the pressurized air unit quickly bounce back into shape, providing a super-responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re on.
