While Nike growing and rolling out new technology to help fitness and athletes alike, don’t forget that Nike is the world’s most popular brand for fitness gear and footwear as well. I also wanted to go over some of the top series of footwear and fitness sneakers that Nike provides.
Air Force 1’s are always the classic go-to shoe when it comes to Nike footwear. The classic all white sneakers produced by Nike are a staple in style and fashion. The Air Force 1’s are not really designed for high-impact workouts, but can be used for lower-impact workouts. However, Air Force 1’s are mainly designed for casual wear.
Nike Air Zoom Vomero is a very popular shoe with avid runners. It was designed with a mesh in the upper area of the shoe with cutouts for more breathable space to allow air flow to keep your feet cool and dry. The shock absorbency from the rubber cushion sole also allows for great traction.
The Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit is the most flexible footwear out there for runners. It was designed to make you feel as if you are wearing socks, not an actual shoe. The shoe is very lightweight and is made with mesh materials that are woven to produce the same tight secure feeling as the harder mesh or leather would. This shoe promotes a natural running stance and doesn’t drag you down due to additional weight from thick rubber soles.
Nike LunarGlide 6 is a very stable sneaker from Nike’s running category that can also be used as a training shoe. It’s really great for all types of workouts. The most surprising factor about this shoe is that dual mid sole that consists of Phlon and Lunarlon that works together to offer a highly stable and responsive stride. The shoe is also designed for extra cushion and comfort for a breathable fit.
Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit was named Runner’s World 2014’s “Best Update” by far. The updated Flyknit truly stepped up it’s game compared to other brands of athletic footwear. It gives a sock-like fit that is supported by multiple Flywire cables on each side. The shoe also features a 6mm offset from the heel to toe providing your forefoot closer to the ground. This mimics are more natural stride. This shoe is a beast and definitely one to consider.
So, there you have it. Those are the top rated Nike shoes as provided by many different polls around the Internet. It’s important to remember when picking out footwear for an active lifestyle that you do your research for which style and design is right for your active lifestyle needs.
In conclusion to this article, I would like to say that I personally can say with pride that all of these Nike products I have mentioned today I have used and absolutely love. Nike is a high quality brand that never disappoints, so if you are considering purchasing any Nike product, I give you the green light.
