They made the heel outsole even thinner, so I'll most likely pass. Too bad, they really do look good IMO.

Will the review be up soon? Are they still wide?
We JUST started the playtest, so it will be a few weeks before we film/write the review.

However, we find them to be the same width as the Air Max Cage, a generous medium width.

Yes, they will come with an outsole durability guarantee.

And these will go live tomorrow, 1/14!

Wow, the description sounds exactly like an improved 2k11/2k12, back to the low to ground Air Zoom, yet with durability now too!

Could this be a new contender to GSOAT compared to Breathe Free II and other classics? If it's just as light as the Vapor, it very well could be a great shoe for many.

what is Zoom cushioning ?

so I just saw this shoe in TW website and it looks very very NICE. but what does this Zoom cushioning mean ? Is it same as AIR zoom cushion or is this another lunar type of cushioning Or is it something different ???

Midsole: Zoom cushioning offers plush cushioning and protection against harsh landings. The TPU midfoot shank resists unwanted twisting when changing direction quickly.

Looks to be two different models of the shoe, one with Zoom and Air in the heel and a different back area and the Volt one....what gives?

Hmmm..the majority white sole on all of the available colors is sort of making me hesitant to pull the trigger on any of them. Anyone know if future colors will have soles that match uppers in terms of colors or if future colors will have soles other than white?

I'm not sure if I understand, sorry! There are two color options, both the same shoe/same technologies.

The Zoom Cage 2 offers "Zoom" cushioning and is different from the "Air Max" cushioning of the Air Max Cage.

From Nike: Each Nike Zoom Air unit is full of tiny fibers
that limit expansion of the air unit when it is
stepped on. This causes the air unit to
bounce back into it's original shape faster,
creating an ultra-responsive feel under-foot.

Hope that helps clarify,

I think he is referring to the black and white color ways of the cage 2. If you use the 360 view on them there appears to be air max windows on the back of the heels. On the volt one they are absent.

Looks like the image of the white shoe and black shoe were the samples Nike send us.

The Volt colorway is the correct image.

I will get our imaging team to update it this morning!

The Zoom Cage 2 does NOT have the air bubble as far as we have been told and then obviously would not have the air bubble showing.

Sorry about the confusion!
