Nike Shox Running Shoes
Summary: The Nike Shox running shoes integrate the Shox technology which are small columns integrated into the shoe sole and are group together in a formation usually of four
The Nike Shox running shoes series maybe the most successful line of athletic shoes in the Nike catalog, perhaps a close second after the highly successful Jordan Series.
The series was called ‘Nike Shox’ since these shoe models incorporate the Shox Technology developed by Nike. These are small columns integrated into the shoe sole and are group together in a formation usually of four or five. The first Shox application was limited only to the outsoles but now Shox are being integrated anywhere on the soles, some even have mid soles made entirely of Shox.
Shox Technology provides superb impact absorption. But not only that, they also functions very much like a spring: feeding power on each stride as the heels makes a spring back after every landing. So, if you ever wonder why they called it ‘Shox’, it is from the word ‘shocks’.
Nike Shox running shoes are not cheap, the lowest price is still $100 and the grandest Shox is a whooping $150.
Nike Shox TL 3
Unit Price: $150
This is the latest in line of the Nike Shox running shoes series. It has Triple layer construction that delivers optimal comfort and fit. The layers also provide breathability from the toes to the foot entry. The TPU midfoot support integrates lacing with superior lockdown. With bisected heel columns, each heel landings are smooth. And probably the best detail is the full length application (entire sole) of the Nike Shox technology, making the shoe an optimal environment for cushioning and impact protection.
Author’s Note: The best Shox yet, and the most expensive. But check the specs, you will see it has everything any runner would need. If $150 won’t scare you, this is the best shoe for you.

This lightweight Nike is best for running. The seamless interior and the incredibly cushioned midsole are perfect for those powerful sprints, taking car of your feet while you pound over the lanes. The bisected lateral heel puck ensures smooth heel touchdowns and slows the pronation rate. Medium stability and medium cushioning makes these excellent running shoes for any normal runner.
Author’s Note: The least expensive shoe to incorporate Shox technology. Personally, if you have $100 to spend for this shoe, it won’t hurt to add a few extra and avail the ones above, now wouldn’t it?
