On December 7, Nike will release the Nike Air Zoom Pulse, a shoe crafted specifically for the “everyday hero,” such as nurses, doctors, and home health care providers.
 
Product testing was done at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon to collect worker insights. The shoe is designed to be easy to clean, simple to take on and off, and equipped with fit, cushioning, and traction systems to meet physical and mental hospital conditions.
 
The Air Zoom Pulse features branding in the form of the Nike Asterix logo on the side tabs, printed Swooshes, and a special colorway created by young patients at the hospital. The shoe has a laceless upper, marked by protective PU-coated synthetic vamp. An elastic strap keeps the heel secured, which elevates the shoe using Zoom Air unit-assisted technology.
 
The Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 collection will come in 6 different takes, and all profits will be donated to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
