Unexpected geometries and hand-made detailing are hallmarks of the new Nike Air Zoom Type. The shoe's form finds its shape from an initial prototype for the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next%, but rather than set for record-breaking, the Air Zoom Type is engineered to solve for stress on the body and feet during a full day out. Aesthetically, the main objective of the Air Zoom Type was to hold as close as possible to the original hand-built prototype created in Beaverton, Oregon. This approach evolves the concept-driven Nike N. 354 label. The shoe features elements such as the N.354 logo treatment and overt stitching. And, with a subtle DNA touch, the breathable tongue is a nod to another pioneering Nike running shoe, the Lunar Racer.
