Product feature: Nike Air Zoom Odyssey

Now in its twentieth year, Nike Zoom Air continues to provide responsive low-profile cushioning that athletes can feel. Nike Running have worked with some of the world’s fastest athletes to develop Zoom Air footwear to meet the needs of runners, whether they’re in the glare of the global spotlight or everyday runners chasing their personal bests.

The snappy responsiveness of Zoom Air cushioning comes from tightly-stretched tensile fibers woven inside a pressurized Nike Air unit. When the athlete’s foot touches down, the fibers compress to cushion the impact before quickly snapping back to their original state, generating an explosive, powerful response off the ground. The result is a fast, cushioned ride whether the runner is out for a morning run or a marathon personal best.

Zoom Air was first introduced in 1995 after more than a decade of research and development. It made its performance debut in three styles: the Nike Air Marauder football cleat launched with both heel and forefoot Zoom Air units and the Air Go LWP basketball shoe debuted with forefoot Zoom Air units. Soon after, Zoom Air was introduced to running in the Air Zoom LWP. Ever since, athletes have trained, competed and won in shoes featuring its responsive cushioning. 

Athletes love the fast, snappy, responsive ride and the energy return they get from it. Zoom Air shoes are preferred by many of Nike’s fast, elite runners. Athletes such as Mo Farah, Galen Rupp and Matt Tegenkamp say that when they’re running up to 20 miles a day, they want their shoe to do some more work for them. Zoom Air gives them a real snap-back feeling.

Stable, soft and fast: The all new Nike Air Zoom Odyssey

Nike Air Zoom Odyssey – an all-new stable shoe from Nike Running that offers speed and distance in locked down comfort. 

The world’s fastest need this much lockdown for a stable feeling at incredible rates of speed. New Flywire technology and dual-injected heel clip enhance heel lockdown, while the flexible outsole and Ortholite sock liner cushion and guide the foot.

Mix that with the most Zoom Air cushioning you can get and you’ve got uncompromising cushioning and comfort for a shoe designed for faster. The Nike Air Zoom Odyssey will be available starting August 4 at nike.com.
