The concept that eventually went into Nike Shox shoes goes back to the middle 1980s, when the idea was first conceived by the effect of a springy indoor running track at Harvard University. Prototypes of the shoes were created in the following years to no avail.
It wasn’t until 1990 that the shoe innovators at Nike came up with the concept of an injected molded column that would house an internal spring plate. After 10 years of experimentation trials and improvements, Nike Shox were ready for public launch.
The shoes use highly resilient foam that is then placed into injection-molded columns to provide a slow rate of impact loading, which enhances durability and spring with every step. It provides a responsive feel while walking, running or participating in athletic competition and also reduce the risk of impact-related injuries. The Shox columns cushioning and stability along with energy return on every step. They have boasted a sleek and stylish look since they were first released in the Nike R4 runner, the BB4 basketball shoe and the XT4 cross-trainer.
They continue to grow in popularity and the models of Nike Shox Shoes also continue to expand.
