Nike Zoom Hypercross Trainer

nikehyper.jpg

Nike unveils the Zoom Hypercross Trainer, a versatile workout shoe that implements their new hexagonal Nike Zoom Air design for enhanced cushioning and responsiveness. They've accomplished this with a unique new sole that places Zoom Air units into hexagons that contain tightly stretched tensile fibers.

Using pressure mapping and an extensive set of data, Nike placed the zoom units in the forefoot rather than the heel to complement where most of the movement of an athlete occurs when in an intense workout. It also allows the foot to be lower to the ground for better stability and flex grooves in the sole give you more articulation. The Zoom Hypercross Trainer will be available on Nike.com and select retailers on October 10th.

Football season is still a couple months away, but Nike's football program is primed and ready debuting their newest high-performance cleat, the Vapor Ultimate.

Taking advantage of Nike's Flyknit tech, the Vapor Ultimate combines that second-skin feel of Flyknit with the Swoosh's plate and traction tech. The specially-engineered one-piece upper keeps the foot locked down while creating a flexible fit that follows the natural motion of the foot to help you move quickly and get right on pace towards the end zone. It also improves traction with special studs and a tri-star traction system that helps you move more confidently, faster, and delivers a zero-slip grip.

After four years of development, outdoor outfitter Arc'teryx will be releasing an all new collection of footwear, a mid-cut boot and low-cut technical shoe for hiking.

Just like their outerwear, the shoes are all about high-tech and high-performance materials and construction. The designs and materials were built in-house and Arc'teryx even developed custom machinery due to the advanced construction of the footwear. The top-of-the-line styles feature a modular system that combines a Gore-Tex liner with a separate water-resistant shell and the liner can be swapped for an insulated one when the temperature starts to fall. Unfortunately it'll be a little while before you can get your hands on a pair as the line won't hit shelves until Spring of 2015.
