Athletic sneakers are typically first and foremost designed for those in sports but the Nike Air Zoom Pulse sets itself apart with a design that instead caters to "everyday heroes"—nurses, doctors, home health providers and others who are constantly on their feet. Insights for the sneaker design were collected at the OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital located in Portland, Oregon, taking note of the fact that nurses "walk approximately four to five miles and sit for less than an hour during the course of a 12-hour shift."
Although the Nike Air Zoom Pulse boasts a simple, comfortable design, it elegantly offers solutions for healthcare professionals. The footwear style is easy to put on and remove, and is equally easy to clean, boasting a full-rubber outsole and a flexible drop-in midsole.
