Nike Zoom Structure 20 First Impressions
The Structure 20 looks very familiar in the distinctive, understated look of a new breed of nike shoes uk outlet
running shoes. At first sight it’s quite similar to last year’s version. Things we can notice immediately are defined as disappearing of those medial “cage” present in the previous version, the more closed mesh used in the upper and also reduction of Flywire (Nike’s lightweight strings that connect the eyelets towards sole of a shoe) - now present only in the last two eyelets.
The sole unit is a dual-density mix of Phylon and Cushlon foams. No surprise in a stability shoe - the foam is softer with a lateral (external) side using the shoe and thanks to Nike’s Dynamic Support it gets harder in the medial (internal) side. Gone would be the cage against the previous version. I didn’t feel so comprehensive change much to how your shoe rides.

shoe is higher. While maintaining a 9mm drop (difference between heel and toe height), it has gained in average 3mm version the Structure 19. I have taken these two images inside the runningwarehouse website as I didn’t have a good shot ?n the outsole belonging to the 19 anymore. The hexagonal studs remain and actually gain surface. They provide a very good grip so it’s an improvement in my book. What has really changed is of the fact that heel is split and how your line of flexibility that runs across the shoe from heel to toe has changed as a consequence.
You can easily see in the 19th the heel’s crashpad (the block where you land) is separated from a external side from the shoe and “connected” in direction of the internal side.nike shoes uk sale
While in the 20 it’s the opposite. I felt the shoe land differently and I couldn’t pin down what could it be until I did compare the outsoles side by side. What I feel truth that whenever you land on your heel in the 19th, the shoe makes you start pronating earlier and blocks you though using harder density foam with the same side.
In the 20th, you are guided towards the external side of your foot and then rolled back in. nike shoes uk online
I feel that made it less stable on landing in my opinion and it’s something I noticed because I easily bruise my peroneal tendon and I don’t enjoy that initial external movement. Some feedback I heard generally people like this change as there’s a less marked difference in cushioning between the two different density parts of one's shoe, but it doesn’t work well for me because of my issue considering the tendon. Personal preferences aside, the base is wide and overall very stable.
The forefoot sports the same Zoom Air unit that subtly cushions the toe-off (while providing a small but noticeable responsiveness inside the toe-off) and while it does not poss the deep flex grooves to your previous version it still flex egregiously.
