Nike unveiled Shox technology in 2001 when they released the Nike Shox R4 running sneaker, Nike Shox BB4 basketball sneaker, and the Nike Shox XT4 cross trainer. Designed to absorb energy and return it to the wearer, all three sneakers featured hollow foam columns built into the midsole with a TPU heel counter. Since then, Nike has released many sneakers with Shox technology and they are still considered extremely comfortable sneakers today.
Overall Rating for Nike Shox Turbo Mesh
Rasheem, Miami, Fl
"Exceptional stability - This shoe was recommended to me by a well known running-shoe store. I over-pronate (ankles roll in) which puts stress on the plantar fascia. Wearing shoes with poor support created plantar fasciitis and severe heel pain, so I needed a good shoe to wear ALL the time. This shoe is IT. I highly recommend it. I have owned 4 or 5 pr and will purchase again. I am tired of the look, but nothing else compares. I order a half size larger than normal and also use a full insole arch support in place of what comes in the shoe; my feet are stable and happy. If you have plantar fascia issues, try this one.
