Nike has designed a pair of kicks made specially with hospital staff in mind.
The new sneaker was designed with the needs of nurses, doctors, and home health providers in mind, and all profits from the shoe will benefit the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon.
The sneaker, the Air Zoom Pulse, will come in eight colors, six of which were actually designed by patients at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
The shoe will be easy to take on and off as well as clean. It also features a laceless top that has a protective PU-coated synthetic vamp. An elastic strap will keep the heel secured and open for flexible and easy one-handed entry.
The Air Zoom Pulse features a fitting yet cushioning inside via Zoom Air heel and a rubber outsole that has a water-dispersive traction pattern to meet the demanding physical and mental hospital conditions. Of course, Nike’s Asterix logo is featured prominently.
This Nike sneaker will help keep health providers up and foot-healthy when they trek though long 12-hours shifts. The first round of Nike Air Zoom Pulse sneakers will go on sale Dec. 7 at select retailers and on the company website.
This sneaker is sure to pay happy and healthy homage to all those hardworking medical workers.
