Behind The Design Of Nike’s Air Zoom Tempo Next% (Video)

We shared some of the initial design process behind Nike’s Air Zoom Tempo Tempo a little while ago (go here to see Nike Running Footwear Designer, Rolando Hern√°ndez‘s renderings). Delving a little deeper into the design and development of the running shoe, Nike recently released a video which takes us through some of the elements that make up their Air Zoom Tempo Next %.

“The Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% mixes durability with a design that helps push you towards your personal best. The result is a shoe built like a racer, but made for your everyday training routine. Zoom Forward Nike ZoomX foam in the footbed delivers energy return as you move forward. A visible Zoom Air unit provides responsive cushioning, giving you an additional spring with your stride. Responsive Heel Nike React technology at the heel is lightweight and durable. It helps keep your foot cushioned and secure with every step. Runner-Informed Traction The rubber outsole features a design created using data from hundreds of runners.” – Nike
