Last summer, Nike released a running sneaker unlike any the brand had dropped before. The Nike Joyride Run Flyknit features a midsole filled with thousands of tiny TPE beads that mimic the gentle feeling of running on soft sand, without the soreness that comes with that activity. It’s intended as a recovery day shoe, and right now, you can try them yourself for up to 40 percent off.
Watch Now: Nike Joyride First Impressions Review
Curiosity piqued? Nike granted us exclusive access to test the shoe, and our first impressions confirmed that the Joyride runs like no other shoe. If you’re not a fan of the pavement-pounding feeling of traditional running, give these kicks a shot.
Feel free to shop around, as 10 colorways (including the one shown above) are available at a discounted price, and there’s still a pretty good selection of sizes. Plus, other Joyride styles are also on sale along with quite a bit on Nike’s site being up to 40 percent off right now.
