Nike Zoom Elite 5: Stability meets premium cushioning. Built for speed, the Nike Zoom Elite 5 Men's Running Shoe keeps the foot locked into place while delivering excellent breathability with large mesh panels along the upper.
Fit: The Nike Zoom Elite 5 is designed to feel light while keeping the foot securely in place. Mesh along the upper helps minimize the overall weight of the shoe while providing excellent ventilation. Super-thin synthetic leather overlays hug the foot into place for a stable, comfortable feel.
Cushioning: Since the ball of the foot takes a lot of impact during runs, the Nike Zoom Elite 5 has a thin, yet springy Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot. It helps provide cushioning while absorbing impact. The Cushlon crash pad runs three-quarters the length of the midsole and helps absorb shock, especially for runners who strike in the midfoot.
Nike Zoom Elite + Running Shoe Technologies:
Nike Zoom cushioning is part of the Nike Air family, and—like its siblings—it’s lightweight and durable. Because Nike Zoom cushioning is incredibly thin, it brings the foot closer to the ground and enhances 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 playing on.
