Nike, Össur collaborate on running sole for Reinertsen, other amputee athletes

Beaverton, OR-based running shoe giant Nike has introduced the Nike Sole, which uses state-of-the art design to create a lightweight, durable composite sole that interfaces easily with Össur’s Flex-Run prosthetic blade for amputee athletes. Nike designed the new Nike Sole in conjunction with Foothill Ranch, CA-based Össur Americas, and elite triathlete and above-the-knee amputee Sarah Reinertsen. Reinertsen, an athlete-spokesperson for the company as part of Team Össur from Orange County, CA, was born with proximal femoral focal deficiency, which led to amputation at age seven.
