Nike Joyride Run Flyknit
The Nike Joyride is not a new footwear from the leading shoe manufacturer. It is a revolutionary cushioning technology that will further bolster the brand’s exciting array of midsole cushioning technologies. The Joyride joins the Air and React systems in gracing tomorrow’s footwear today.
Unlike the Air and React cushioning systems, Nike designed to Joyride to provide a lighter package. It made sure that the design never compromises in its ability to return energy to the feet. This ensures better bounce with each stride. Its ability to absorb impact forces is also commendable. The only difference is in the materials that Nike used in the design of the Joyride.
Unlike the Nike Air’s Air unit and the React’s foam cushioning technology, the Joyride utilizes thousands of premium-quality TPE beads. The brand placed these beads within pods that its engineers tuned into individual zones. The net effect is that the system expands in all directions. Nike calls it the multi-dimensional displacement.
The individual beads configure themselves to conform to the unique contour of your foot. Foam and air technologies also do this, but in a very different manner. It is like having a bean bag right under your foot, allowing for a more personalized experience.
Nike designed the Joyride’s heel pod to be bigger in size, allowing it to absorb more impact forces. The forefoot pods are smaller, yet they allow for a smoother forward transition. The net effect is like you are running, walking, or moving on bubbles. They can even be used as professional shoes for standing all day.
Some of the first Nike footwear that will have the Joyride technology include the Run Flyknit, the NSW, the NSW Setter, the NSW Optik, and the Kids Nova.
One can expect these Nike shoes fitted with the new Joyride system to be an instant hit. It might even surpass the React and Air systems.
