Nike shoes are made in all shapes and sizes for various sports and activities. The shoe brands real bread and butter are in basketball and running shoes. One of their latest offerings the Nike Air Structure Triax Men’s shoe follows in this tradition. The shoe model in one of Nike’s longest running brands and the shoe has definitely benefited from its long history with continual improvements to its structure and design. The tricky thing about writing a review for a shoe is that the human body varies from person to person, especially feet. So what may be a perfect shoe for one person can be a terrible fit for another individual. In writing this review I looked at the shoes general design then looked at different customer’s reactions to find what was generally liked and what issues they might have with the shoe.
The shoe is basically designed as a running shoe for lighter runners. The shoe has a mesh upper that allows for free airflow. The shoe also has a pretty solid foot bed for the sole and the famous Nike air sole for support of the heel. The shoe also comes with a lining that is easy on the socks. For the out sole Nike went with a Duralon out sole in the forefoot and BRS1000 in the heel for better durability. This make for a strong shoe design that should meet most types of running conditions.
Reviewing several people’s reactions there were some mixed reactions concerning the Nike Triax Men’s shoe. Many wearers including myself found the shoe a bit tight at first but a decent fit when worn for a longer period. Many wearers found the shoe to be lightweight and greater for smaller and less weighty runners. However its seems that just as many saw the shoe more as a fashion statement than a shoe they would use for serious training or physical training. This raised issues about the shoes durability which is a concern considering its $89 USD price tag. If you are spending that much money a shoe need to prove durable. But personally I feel the jury is still out on that as people can put different levels of stress on a shoe. The only major concern I read about was the effect it has on feet with different pronations. Some customers complained that the shoe didn’t do enough to support the arch causing pain in the knees and shin splints. Personally I like a shoe with good arch support so this probably something that needs to be addressed in later models.
Overall the shoe has a generally a solid one. It has its quirks but find a proper size and being a regular run should take care of a lot of the issues. The shoe is also a great fashion statement that is something everyone likes in a Nike shoe
