These Chukkas are designed with the same technology that is in the Blazer, providing all day comfort and durability. The vulcanized construction gives the shoe an already broken in feel, and the built in rubber toe cap ensures superior flick and longevity. The geometric design between the midsole and the outsole provide equal compression that disperses impact across the whole foot helping protect pressure points on your feet.
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.
Auxetic Midsole Design - The midsole is designed with geometric shapes that expand and contract in all directions, allowing equal pressure dispersal throughout each step, and giving added flexibility.
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.
