The Flywire technology locks down the midfoot. It consists of strategically placed filaments that give support where it’s needed.

The outsole is made from rubber all throughout for traction on different types of surfaces. It extends up to the sides to protect it from abrasion.
Nike Air Max Alpha Trainer size and fit
The Nike Air Max Alpha Trainer is built for men and comes in a wide array of US sizes, ranging from 6 to 15 with half sizes in between. Buyers have no other choice for the width profile as it only has the D - Medium option.
The Nike Air Max Alpha Trainer has a bottom that is covered with rubber for multi-directional traction on indoor surfaces. It also wraps up onto the sides to protect the upper from abrasion.
The Nike Air Max Alpha Trainer utilizes a unit of the Max Air technology in the heel for cushioning and responsiveness. Just as the name suggests, this component is powered by airbags to keep its lightweight form. It works by absorbing the force upon foot strike to protect the foot from stress or potential injury. It goes back to its original form upon toe-off to absorb the next impact. A similar midsole construction with an Air Max unit is employed inthe Nike Air Max Typha 2 trainer.
The insole is made from foam for a pleasant underfoot sensation. It is also made removable to accommodate custom orthotics.
An engineered mesh makes wearing the Nike Air Max Alpha Trainer a breathable experience. It is strengthened and protected by lightweight skin and film overlays in the high-wear areas. It has an inner sleeve for a snug fit and moisture-wicking comfort.
The lightweight Flywire technology offers support in the midfoot area. It consists of a set of strategically placed filaments that work like cables on a suspension bridge.
A lace-up closure system keeps the foot contained within the footwear. It allows the user to adjust the fit according to their preference.
The collar and tongue are padded for a snugger fit. They have a soft lining that protects the skin from chafing and abrasion.
