Nike will soon be debuting the Air Zoom Type, an innovative new model that features handmade details and an unconventional design.

Derived from a sample of the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% premier racing shoe, this silhouette is instead engineered for everyday comfort. Resting upon two Zoom Air pods in the forefoot and a TPU running through the midsole, the Nike Air Zoom Type provides excellent comfort with a futuristic athleisure aesthetic. The primary focus on this shoe was to not stray too far away from the prototype to exemplify the creative process from prototype to end product.
