Flex grooves along the length and width of the midsole enhance flexibility and articulation, allowing the foot to easily move in any direction. Wider grooves in the forefoot allow toes to engage more during landings and push-offs. Plus, no-sew construction eliminates stitching for even more flexibility and comfort. SupportFor a lockdown fit and support, this training shoe features a dual-pull lacing system that wraps around the foot and attaches to the midsole. Dynamic Fit construction wraps the forefoot for a glove-like fit that moves as the foot moves for extra support. And the sidewall wraps up to cradle the heel and the midfoot to help keep the foot in place during side-to-side and diagonal movements. TractionWhether training on field turf, the track, concrete or hardwood, the DiamondFLX traction brings flexible, multidirectional grip. Solid rubber pods in the heel and perimeter of the forefoot are configured in an aggressive, delta-node pattern for added traction and durability. OriginsAfter learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university's golf course, three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion. The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
