Nike has been on a path towards inclusion and re-invention amongst the entire brand, and their latest innovation adds to that foundation. The shoe has been dubbed the “Nike Air Zoom Pulse,” which is an unique design tailored specifically to those that work in the medical field. The shoe was made to aid in those health providers that devote endless hours and passion everyday into ensuring safety, and even rescue, to those they come in contact with.
Nike began with testing the capability of the shoe at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital located in Portland, Oregon to gather results feedback in real time. The shoe has many components that directly benefit those made for it, including the quick slide on and off design, snug fit, and easy to clean areas. While very work savvy, The Air Zoom Pulse is still very appealing bearing the Nike Asterix logo and printed swooshes inscribed on the side tabs, equipped with a laceless appeal, covered by a protective PU-synthetic binding held firmly with elastic straps around the heel promoting maximum mobility. To keep consistent with all conditions in a hospital, the shoe is elevated with a Zoom Air heel and slip-resistant rubber outsole.
With custom color ways from the Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 collection shining young patients, the Air Zoom Pulse is set to release on December 7 via nike.com. In continuous support in furthering the good deeds of those with a direct hand in changing lives, all profits from the sales will be donated to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
