Nike Grind

Products from the athlete... returning for the athlete. We are dedicated to performance. Our innovative Training Ground with Nike Grind line of surfacing uses retired Nike shoes to create sustainable flooring solutions that support the ultimate level of athletic training. Because you only get out of it what you put into it.

How it works.

Training Ground features Nike Grind, a high performance raw material harvested from recycled athletic shoes and Nikes manufacturing footwear by-product. Both material streams are then used to create premium athletic surfaces. Ecore has revolutionized the process of recapturing shock absorbing properties that will drive those attributes back into the floors you train on. Some people say this is cradle to cradle. We say from the athlete back to the athlete!

What you don't see matters.

Protection. Performance. Perseverance. Training Ground with Nike Grind products are proven to absorb force and return energy, thus reducing the wear and tear on an athlete's body, and propelling them to do what they love, longer. The primary component of every Training Ground with Nike Grind product is SmashPad, an underlayment that features performance rubber and Nike Grind. This revolutionary combination of raw materials works in concert to create a surface that provides MOREā€¦ a more safe, ergonomic, and quiet athletic environment. SmashPad works hard below the playing surface to support the athlete working equally as hard above it.

At Ecore Athletic, the athlete is paramount. We want athletes of all ages to do what they love longer. How? By creating products that are defined by performance.
