The Nike Downshifter 5 is designed to offer a good mix of cushioning and stability. The Padded Collar and Synthetic
Overlays, along with the connected lacing system ensures your foot is fitted securely and comfortably in place, giving
you a more enjoyable step, every single time your foot touches the ground. The Decoupled Forefoot is designed to give
the front of the foot great flexibility, allowing you to get the most out of your toe off while an EVA midsole provides
a lightweight unit that resists compression for a stable platform underfoot. A carbon rubber outsole provides plenty of
durability while the waffle iron design gives you the traction you need on road surfaces and on very light trails.
