trending 15/11/2019

Nike's newest sneaker has been designed especially for doctors, nurses and other medical workers who spend long hours on their feet. 

The Nike Air Zoom Pulse was designed through product testing at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon, to collect worker's thoughts. The shoes are easy to slip on and off, easy to clean, with complete fit, cushioning and tractions systems to meet all the physical hospital conditions. 

The Air Zoom Pulse is laceless, with a protective PU-coated synthetic vamp, and an elastic strap to keep the heel secured and open for flexible and easy one-handed entry. Branding on the shoe comes in the form of Nike Asterix logo side tabs and printed Swooshes. The shoe has a Zoom Air heel flexible drop-in midsole paired with a rubber outsole and a water-dispersive traction pattern.

The new shoes will be released in 6 different colour patterns on December 7th at, with all profits donated to OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital. 

Great work Nike!
