NIKE SHOX R4
The concept of energy returning cushioning was something that had been in the making for sixteen years. After countless experiments with springs and hinges, the “mechanical” aspects were discarded in favor of an innovative application of an existing, integral element of performance technology, foam cushioning.
Hollowed, foam columns equipped with dispersion plates absorbed impact by collapsing towards the center, and produced a spring like, energy return effect as they expanded back into shape. The finished product was dubbed Nike Shox.
Shox made a timely debut in time for the turn of the millennium. The unique appearance and dynamic new technological feel, not to mention a buoyant “boing boing” tagline, made an instant splash in the footwear world.
The original Shox silhouette, the Nike Shox R4 makes a welcome return, in triple black form, a sleek, minimalist application of color that highlights the layered upper construction and makes the revolutionary Shox columns the overall centerpiece of the design, because almost twenty years later, and there's still nothing quite like them.
