For those that love the ride and response of the Nike Shox, but want a lighter, faster and more nimble ride, the Nike Shox NZ is the perfect combination. A one-piece construction provides a more fit upper, while a ghillie lacing system wraps the foot to the midsole. It still has the original Nike Shox four-column unit in the heel for excellent cushioning. A Phylon forefoot gives performance and responsiveness. The full-length BRS 1000 carbon rubber® outsole with modified circular Waffle-pattern outsole offers better traction than ever before.
