    Nike’s Shox Total is making a big comeback: Initially available to the general public in 2000, the first Shox designs planted high-quality plastic columns inside the midsole for shock absorption and feedback. energy, giving the impression of running on flexible mechanical springs.

    Now Nike is re-issuing the Shox Total, a 2003 running shoe with 11 Shox columns spanning the length of the midsole, intended to absorb heel strike and add more power to a runner’s stride. It’s a concept that was originally inspired by indoor track sprinters and their bouncing appearance on the track surface, but has rebounded into more popularity on the basketball court than on runners’ feet. , in part thanks to a marketing campaign starring NBA dunk-master Vince Carter.

    The Nike Shox Total debuted in 2003 as a high-end, high-cushion trainer.

    The runner’s world awarded the Shox Total our Editors’ Choice award in 2003 for its durability and smooth ride, although we noted that its weight made it ideal for heavier runners. And while we wouldn’t recommend the Shox Total as a performance trainer in 2019, the durability of these polyurethane columns means the reboot should last for years of gym wear and ball field flexing.

    “Boing” was the mantra when Nike released the original Shox in 2000.
