After introducing its new Joyride technology in July, Nike continues the line’s expansion with a brand-new silhouette dubbed the Joyride Dual Run. Crafted to keep a runner’s legs feeling fresh, Joyride technology utilizes thousands of tiny TPE foam beads that move with the foot. This provides a soft and versatile cushioning experience that tailors itself to any and all types of gaits. For this silhouette, it’s mixed with a supple foam for a more traditional Nike Running feel.
The silhouette’s introductory colorway is a mixture of simple blacks and whites with vivid blue and pink neon tones, a look that’s similar to past “South Beach” sneakers. The low-slung upper is constructed of a black mesh, which is then accented by pops of pink and contrasting white trim. Down below, the heel’s Joyride beads are entombed in a translucent shell of light blue rubber that creeps up onto the shoe’s lower half for extra support. More beads are in the midfoot chamber, but the forefoot is strictly foam, helping the wearer toe off with power and precision before they land on the cushioned heel and start the motion over again.
Joining the ranks of other Joyride silhouettes like the NSW Setter and Odell Beckham Jr‘s OBJ Joyride Flyknit, the Joyride Dual Run is available at Nike’s site now for $130 USD, exclusively through the free-to-join Nike Plus program. Non-members will be able to purchase the shoe globally on November 18.
Elsewhere in the ever-busy world of Nike, the brand is set to bring back its classic Air Max Triax 96 in a “Gym Red” colorway.
