The upper of the Nite Jogger features nylon ripstop material, mesh, 3M reflective and suede overlays. Let’s start going through the upper from the tongue which provides a deconstructed and modern look. It looks like the tongue has a little to no padding and may not be too good for those that doesn’t wear socks. The tongue can be kept in place with the traditional lacing system. Unlike some modern shoes, the shoelaces feature 3M reflective detailing which appears to be visible at night.
The collar is well padded and capable of providing soft feel thereby avoiding skin irritation in the ankle area.
The toecap area features suede overlays which provide some reinforcement to improve the structural integrity at that area. 3M reflective overlays on the upper and the nylon ripstop material are some features that make the kick more distinctive. Nylon ripstop material is known for its ability to withstand wear and tear and there’s no doubt it will increase the lifespan of the Nite Jogger shoes.
The Adidas Nite Jogger features heel clip on the heel. The heel clip sits on the boost midsole and fixed to the upper. It’s in U-shape form and runs from the heel to the midsection. Some reviewers said that it adds more weight to the shoe. Though this is true, a good point is, it provides some level of security and support to the foot.
The upper of the Nite Jogger is known for its brightness in the dark. This is possible due to the 3M Reflective detailing. The heel clip is also detailed with the 3M reflective to make the shoe look more stylish.
This retro sneaker features the Adidas most responsive cushioning technology called Boost in the midsole. The Boost sole is usually made by compressing an Eva (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) pellet and mould it into a required shape. This material is well-known for its springy ability. In Boost technology, the more energy you give the more you get in return. This is possible because of its bouncy and responsive effect.
The Boost provides the right cushion and support you need for your everyday wear. It also has the ability for absorbing shock or impact force in every step.
Ortholiteis a removable insole that comes with the shoe. It’s able to offer the foot a soft comfortable feel and support the Boost midsole in absorbing shock.
Adidas Nite Jogger outsole comes with a unique design. It features groove towards the heel area. The overall outsole area features different blocking designs and colours. Most of the area appears in translucent off-white colour which doesn’t glow in the dark. Lightning-bolt-shape is one of the impressive blocking design on the outsole. It runs from the toe area to the midsection on the medial side.
Another thing to know about the outsole is that it’s rubber and it is designed to offer good traction on any surface, wet or dry.
