Stability has never been faster with Nike’s new Air Zoom Structure 18. Over the last two decades, Nike designers have debunked the notions that stable means slow. They’ve constantly pushed to make the Nike Structure shoe lighter, smoother and more responsive without sacrificing any of its vaunted stability features. The design of the Structure 18 is a quantum leap from past versions where designers revolutionised it from top to bottom.
The Nike team worked closely with elite athletes such as 10,000m silver medallist Galen Rupp and 3,000m world junior champion Mary Cain for insights to bring the distinctive shoe across the finish line. Rupp, who runs nearly all of his 120 miles per week in the Nike Structure, said the Structure 18 gives him a more stable ride and feels faster all the way through his runs.
Delivering uncompromising stability through the combination of an upper featuring Asymmetrical Dynamic Flywire and a triple-density Dynamic Support system in the midsole. The new contoured last – created to provide a better fit and more responsive ride, combined with Nike Zoom Air cushioning, provides added toe spring for the snappy, quick-off-the-ground feel athletes expect from Nike Zoom Air.
