Nike is Making Sneakers Only for Medical Workers
Here's something a little different. Further demonstrating the brand’s skill to make the best sneakers for everyone, Nike is now making a range of sneakers designed exclusively 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.


But what makes it suited to help our everyday heroes? Well, comfort first, of course. But there’s so much more. After conducting heaps of product testing, gaining insights and other research at the a Hospital in Portland, Nike determined their medical sneaker had to have a few things, and do them extremely well. On top of comfort, the sneaker needs to have an easy to get on and off construction, it needs to be easy to clean, and lastly, it needs to come complete with fit, cushioning and traction systems to meet all the physical and mental hospital conditions.

 
And so, the Nike Air Zoom Pulse was born. 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, a nod to its hospital surroundings. 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.

Look out for the six Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 takes on the Nike Air Zoom Pulse (some pictured) to release December 7 on Nike.com,  with all profits to be donated to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The debut black and aqua general release colourway is set to drop sometime in December, no word on a local release unfortunately so time will tell.
