Nike Air Zoom Victory FK
Push for your personal best with the Nike Air Zoom Victory. Its design is built with the support and stability you need to run from 800 to 5,000 meters.
Introducing the latest version of FlyKnit-AtomKnit. Flyknit fabric is stretched, steamed and fixed. It offers a lightweight, contoured fit with minimal water absorption and enhanced breathability. The minimalist fabric conforms to the foot to ensure a dynamic, lightweight fit, ideal for running, while perforations in the fabric increase airflow, creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive. The breathable upper allows cool air to flow into the construction while, at the same time, allowing hot, humid air to escape so you can stay cool, dry and comfortable at all times. The lacing system locks down the midfoot to reduce slippage inside the shoe so you can enjoy distraction-free strides. Finally, the laces are notched to keep them in place.
Nike ZoomX foam in the heel is incredibly responsive and lightweight, giving you optimal energy return and shock absorption for your miles. It combines with a Zoom Air unit, providing efficient energy return with every step. A carbon fiber plate provides a grippy feel with every step. This energy return technology reduces the use of superfluous muscle power, reducing fatigue and improving performance, keeping you going longer. Integrated into the generous ZoomX platform, and complementing its responsive nature, is a full-length carbon fiber plate. Designed to minimize energy loss during toe flexion without increasing the demand on the calf, it rises under the heel as you move forward, producing the sensation of momentum that turns into extra-energized strides. The plate is curved at the forefoot, which helps return some of the energy the runner puts into the toe. The unit compresses to reduce the force of impact, and then recovery allows the air unit to return to its original shape and volume to ensure a soft, responsive base from which to push off. Every time you land, the powerful Air Zoom pads absorb your energy and shoot it right back out, so you can make your next move.
Data has been collected from hundreds of people to make the outsole. Traction is placed in all contact areas for grip from toe to toe. A 3/4-length injected Pebax spike plate completes the shoe, providing a rigid propulsion platform for powerful, reactive strides. The plate’s generative design uses an algorithm to identify where zones of stiffness and flexibility are needed and uses a honeycomb-inspired pattern to achieve this. Areas requiring greater flexibility have larger cutouts that use less material to significantly reduce weight. Six removable studs, made of stainless steel, provide optimal, biting traction. A sharkskin heel cup enhances grip, for multi-surface traction, without sacrificing weight; resisting heel strike trauma to provide you with a reliable, fast and durable running partner.
