The latest incarnation of one of Nike’s longest running shoes continues last year’s trend to a more runner-friendly product. In truth, this was a move that started last year
, but the new shoe has extended the Tubular Air midsole technology from only the rearfoot into the front of the shoe as well. It also has a one-piece stretch-fit upper with an inner sock, which some weartesters found slightly restrictive. Although the shoe is roughly the same weight (360g) as before, it does feel more cushioned, particularly in the forefoot.
