Following a decade of research and development, Nike Zoom Air was first introduced in 1995, encapsulated within the outsole to act as a propulsion system under the athlete’s foot. It begins with lightly-stretched tensile fibers woven inside a pressurized Nike Air unit, which release their tension when the wearer's foot touches down, allowing the air to cushion the impact before the fibers quickly snap back to their original state, ultimately generating an explosive, powerful response off the ground. The upshot: a fast, cushioned ride, available through the five silhouettes that make up the Nike Zoom Air running collection. Each Zoom Air shoe is built to meet the runner's specific needs: the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31, representing a neutral running shoe for everyday training; the Nike Air Zoom Structure 18, offering superior stability; the Nike Air Zoom Elite 7, the lightest model in the Zoom training family; and the Nike Air Zoom Streak 5, built for marathon running. The Nike Air Zoom Streak 5 and Air Zoom Pegasus 31 are available now in stores, while the Air Zoom Elite 7 launches in August and the Air Zoom Structure 18 in October.
