The Nike designers kept the no-sew overlays to a minimum too, thus ensuring runners with an irritation-free wear. By providing a cool and dry wearing comfort, these Flex Runs eliminate hotspots within the shoes so you won’t have to worry about developing blisters when taking on long distances.
Aside from its breathable comfort, these women’s running shoes also boasts superior cushioning so they make a great pair no matter if you’re looking to walk around the town or run a marathon. The midsoles of the Flex Run 2014 feature the revolutionary Phylon core with pressure mapping technology. Simply put, this allows the shoes to provide comfortable cushioning right where it’s needed.
There is also the molded EVA sockliner for underfoot support, while the removable Fitsole insole supplies enhanced underfoot cushioning. To complement its plush cushioning, the toes and heels of the shoes are made with carbon rubber for extra support in these high-abrasion areas.
The laces of the Flex Run 2014 are integrated with the middle foot webbing system to promote a supportive and adaptive fit. Another interesting feature in these women’s running shoes is the forefoot, which come enclosed in a partial mesh inner sleeve for the best in-shoe feel.
Each outsole was also crafted with an exclusive Phylite carrier that gives added flexibility and long-lasting durability. This helps make the Flex Runs a versatile and resilient ride but without the extra bulk and weight. Plus, articulated flex grooves line up the length of the shoes for smoother and more efficient range of motion with every stride.
