In the matter of innovation, Road Warrior is inspired by several sources: basketball, training, running and outdoor clothing. Nike's goal was to create a shoe that would give its best in urban environments. All of these performance innovations live in harmony, offering comfort, protection and durability. Road Warrior echoes the pioneering design of Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next%, the shoe with which the 2-hour wall for the marathon was broken. It also integrates the Nike Air Zoom BB NXT energy return. The open and floating heel refers to the first Nike Shox prototypes, but moves away from the rebound effect of the pins in favor of a double layer of Zoom pod and a double flat sole under the foot. A silhouette that does not compromise with stability. That's why, for Road Warrior, the US brand has redesigned the split-toe structure of traditional Japanese shoes, generally used for work shoes, to create an incredibly natural barefoot fit.
