It was a rainy evening and as expected, with it comes heavy traffic, so I decided to just take a walk from Makati all the way to Bonifacio High Street to join the Home Run session of NRC. There, a pair of Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 awaits me to take for a quick ride. I feel sorry that I have to use a new pair to run onto wet pavement!
I joined a very relaxed group running 3K with an average pace of 6:00/km. In this group are some fellow runner/bloggers also evaluating the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20. And after doing 3K around BHS, here are my thoughts:
Very cool colorways
It’s always the outside looks that you’d notice first and the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 have some very nice colorways
Even after 3K of running on wet surfaces under some light drizzle, I still was hardly able to feel the weight of the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20. According to Nike, a US men’s size 10 weighs 11.2oz or less than 318 grams.
Just on the first try I could tell that the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 is a stability shoe given how firm it is. Its soles are much firmer than other non-stability shoes that I’ve worn as it is pretty much a solid block, but they still bend enough for a nice ride.
Despite the drizzle and wet pavement, I didn’t feel uneasy running with the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 as the traction was good and I didn’t encounter any slip ups. On the other hand, our pace was easy so I can’t comment if this still holds true for fast running.
I didn’t bother adjusting the laces of the pair that I got but never during my 3K easy run did I feel it slip up. It fits like a sock and the laces secure the shoes without the need for a tight lacing.
Overall, I find the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 a good shoe for those needing stability. It is lightweight, offers good fit and traction, and it really looks good! Cushioning though is not as good as other models from Nike due to its stability nature.
The Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 has an SRP of ₱6,295.
