Strength and growth comes from continuous effort, and the revolutionary Nike Air Zoom Structure 18 proves that growing up doesn’t have to mean slowing down. Now in its 18th version, the Nike Air Zoom Structure raises the bar for running shoes that deliver both speed and stability.
Over the years, Nike designers have constantly pushed to make the Nike Structure shoe lighter, smoother and more responsive without sacrificing any of its stability features. The design of the Structure 18 is a quantum leap from previous versions.
The Nike Air Zoom Structure 18 delivers uncompromising stability through the combo of an upper featuring Asymetrical 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 quick-off-the-ground feel athletes expect.
Designed to provide runners with support and cushioning, the Dynamic Support system uses opposing wedges of foam with different densities to help slow the rate of pronation. Designers enhanced the support in the Nike Air Zoom Structure 18 by adding a third, high-density foam to the existing system. When needed, the three-density Dynamic Support system kicks in to provide added support and enhance the smooth transition upon foot strike.
The design also features a Nike Engineered Mesh upper with Asymetrical Nike Flywire cables that wrap the foot and provide support, letting the foot move naturally. Nike Engineered Mesh also improves comfort and breathability. It enables designers to precision-engineer ventilation and lightweight support where needed most.
Nike’s Zoom Air technology is the fastest, most responsive Nike Air cushioning, making it the cushioning of choice for many athletes. Highly responsive Nike Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot combined with the added toe spring of the new Zoom last, provides the Structure 18 with a responsive snap and fast transition.
