NIKE ZOOM STRUCTURE+ 16 - FITSOLE 2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I am hoping someone can give me some advice on these shoes, I purchased a pair a month ago. Ever since I started running in them I had serious leg pain (felt like it was inside the bone). I gave it a rest for a week and ran 4km with the shoes and noticed that the Fitsole 2 insoles were digging into the back of the bridges in my feet. I changed the Fitsole 2 insoles for a flat indoor sole and ran a 21km race, without any pain at all.

 

I assume that the Fitsole's are supposed to give more support and help with the general run, so what would be the recommended path I should take with regards to the soles?

Hmm. Fitsole 2 is use in lot Nike shoes. Never gave me problems. I would say u might not need a stability shoe and you actually need a neutral. With the insole change and it goes away seem odd. Maybe too much arch in the insole for u. I've tried on stability shoes and the kill me just trying them on and walking around the store. I would put my other shoes on they would seem off feeling then.

I've had the zoom structure 12-15 and I can say the 16 is not on par stability-wise with prior editions. Ditching the medial post for the dynamic support certainly contributed to that, just like the Lunar eclipse series does not offer the same amount of stability that the Equalons did.

I am in major agreement with you; I don't like sometimes how Nike almost over-innovates and wants to use its recent flagship technology in the shoes when the medial post works great, although yeah it might add a few ounces but I don't care, I'm not looking for a lightweight trainer. Why they did away with Equalons, I won't ever know why, they were amazing shoes.

Both the Zoom Structure and the Equalons were two cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Nike screwed up big time. The medial post and zoom air setup in both of those shoes was perfect for over-pronators and didn't need to be messed with at all. So what do they do? Get rid of both for the Structure 16s and discontinue the Equalons. Nike basically doesn't have a true stability shoe anymore. The dynamic support just doesn't cut it.
