The epitome of comfort and durability exists within the soles of Nike’s all-new Air Zoom Tempo NEXT%. Unveiling the shoe alongside an extended variety of colorways for its original series of Zoom sneakers, the brand presents the gift of an optimal running experience in the form of four shoes.
Dubbed the “BeTrue” collection, Nike adorns four unique sneakers with emblems of the LGBTQ+ community in honor of Pride Month. The collection which aims to further its commitment to equality, features the Air Force 1 “BeTrue”, inspired by New York City ballroom culture in the ’80s, the Air Max 2090 showcasing a mix of violet, green and burgundy panels, the Zoom Pegasus 37 – printed with a rainbow gradient grid, and the black Air Deschutz “BeTrue” with hidden colors on the interior of crisscross straps.
Complete with two new Nike Zoom Air pods, more ZoomX foam and a single carbon fiber plate, the Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% is finished off with a breathable Flyknit upper, and features the brand’s iconic ‘Swoosh’ running from the toe to the laterals, in bright red.
Ensuring absolute stability and seamless transition for a full stride, Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% is expected to include Nike React Foam at its heels for enhanced protection and durability, alongside bold aesthetics of gradient red and purple overlays between its upper and midsole.
Incorporating new material construction dubbed Vaporweave, the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% offers breathability and less absorption, when compared to Nike’s signature Flyknit fabric, to keep the runner’s feet dry throughout intensive activity. The shoe is further highlighted by a large Swoosh running across the upper with smaller brandings placed at the side.
Last but certainly not least, the Air Zoom Pegasus 37 features a Zoom Air bag at the forefoot for greater rebound and energy return, showcasing lightweight translucent uppers. Slated for arrival on 10th July 2020, The Pegasus 37 and Tempo NEXT% are the first of the four scheduled for release, followed soon-after by the Vaporfly NEXT% in mid-July.
