Continuing its footwear development, Nike has now crafted a sneaker especially designed for medical workers. Dubbed the Nike Air Zoom Pulse, the shoe is for everyday heroes like nurses, doctors, home health providers and others who work tirelessly to support patients.

To design a shoe that can meet the range of challenges medical workers face, Nike conducted product testing at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital located in Portland, Oregon to collect worker insights. The shoe is defined by an easy to get on and off construction that is easy to clean and comes complete with fit, cushioning and traction systems to meet all the physical and mental hospital conditions.

The Air Zoom Pulse features a laceless upper marked by a protective PU-coated synthetic vamp while an elastic strap keeps the heel secured and open for flexible and easy one-handed entry. Branding on the shoe comes in the form of Nike Asterix logo side tabs and printed Swooshes. Elevating the shoe is a Zoom Air heel unit-assisted flexible drop-in midsole paired with a rubber outsole with a water-dispersive traction pattern.

Aside from crafting new takes on Nike and Jordan Brand for the Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 collection, this year’s cast of brave young patients also put together special colorways of the Air Zoom Pulse.

Look for the six Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 takes on the Nike Air Zoom Pulse to release December 7 on nike.com with all profits will be donated to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, while the debut colorway of the Air Zoom Pulse will hit nike.com and select retailers sometime in December.
