Assimilate what they learned during the engineering process for athletes participating in the 2008 Summer Olympics and other martial art events. The designers at Nike created the Nike Martial Arts TD, a sneaker that will meet all the needs of a martial artist, despite his or her specific discipline.
The vamp is constructed out of layered leather to ensure durability as well as protection for the wearer’s foot. Padded ankle collar provides ample support. An oversize toe cap in thick suede insulate the wearer’s foot while in contact with his or her opponent. The sneaker has a wider than usual stance, needed as anchor during grappling. Meanwhile, its lower center of gravity guarantees a sense of balance. An unusual outsole, with most of its treads angled at 45° degree, was added since most martial artists’ foot movement pivot at a angle. The Nike Martial Arts TD is available at martial arts specialties retailers, such as MMA fighter Caol Uno (å®‡é‡Žè–°)’s UCS (Uno Caol Showten)
