Nike Men's Air Max Assail Running Shoe:
Trail running and adventure racing are hardly cush aerobic activities, but if additional cushioning matters, the Nike Air Max Assail delivers without a lot of excess bulk. Above the aggressive lug tread on the carbon rubber sole is Nike's Maximum Air Sole unit, the most cushion available for any Nike running shoe. This extra cushion gives you the most impact protection available while running on sandstone, basalt and urban concrete. The upper is a combination of breathable mesh and synthetic overlays, giving you a moderate degree of weather protection in drizzle (just sidestep the puddles when possible). Even if you can't run like the wind, you'll appreciate walking in the Air Max Assail from Nike.
