Before the Nike Air Zoom Structure 19, my first interaction with Nike Running was when I was invited in the launch of the Nike LunarGlide+ sometime in June 2009. During that time, running races are on the rise in the Philippine soil. Together with blogger friends, we were given a pair of the LunarGlide+ for review. This lightweight trainer became my companion for months during my training. Being hooked with the Nike technology, I bought another pair of the LunarGlide+, which helped me to successfully cross the finish line of the BDM 102 Ultramarathon race. Then came the Nike Air Pegasus 29, a dynamic trainer and a race-able speedster too. Certainly not the last, the Nike FlyknitLunar+1, for fast-paced performance in every stitch and every stride, followed.
Last weekend I was invited again by Nike Running and their promotional marketing to test run their new Nike Air Zoom Structure. We were treated to an interval training together with the Dela Salle Track Team at the University of Makati Track Oval. Now on it's 19th version, they involved a similar seamless construction to the uppers of their performance shoes like those of Nike’s FlyKnits that helped to be more adaptive on the foot. The shoe was well supported, responsive, stable and fast. Ideal for everyday and weekend long run training, to races from 10km to marathon distances. I would like to have them on my shoe cabinet, but I am more on the neutral variants. But given the feel of the Air Zoom Structure, they can be a big help for my track intervals and speed sessions.
