Available to buy but impossibly hard to get hold of. The ultimate speed machine pushing the boundaries of footwear (and body) performance to the limit and THE benchmark that every other brand is now chasing.

Our verdict

Forget the score, we haven't reviewed it yet. But we have spoken to plenty athletes who have, and its a rocketship for your feet.

  • Positive
  • Proven track record - 1:59 marathon says it all
  • An obviously advanced version of an unsane shoe cannot be bad!
  • PB, PR and course record killer
  • Negative
  • Hard to imaging it being an everyday running shoe
  • Try and get hold of a pair - rather popular
  • Its cheating isnt it - wink wink

First impressions

Well if mental looking, insane stack height, incredible engineering and unbelievable trampoline type cushioning floats your boat - then start saving. 

Without doubt the ultimate racing shoe - nothing compared and its at the absolute limit of what is allowed and possible in a running shoe. The benchmark has been set, and no one is close to delivering an equvalent performance benefit. If you are at the front of the pack, you are definately wearing these shoes or your compromising your ability to compete. 

Midsole

With 40mm of Zoom X cushioning combined with a Carbon Fibre plate and now twin Air pockets, the shoe is crammed full of technology. 

The soft cushioned foam aims to make marathons less stressful on the legs while the Carbon and Air should have that desired propulsive effect.

Upper

A new, ultra-light upper helps keep the weight down and the speed up. It is the best Nike shoe on the market, it will have the best upper materal available - that is without question. 

Sole

High abrasion rubber pods in the heel prolongs durability as the forefoot does not have anything other than blown rubber to minimise the weight. This is not a shoe built for durability and many of the runners wearing them get them for free to perform - so be aware this is a short lifespan shoe at best. 

Conclusion

Unless your an elite athlete looking for the tiny extras, there really isnt a need to wear this shoe. Do you honestly think we are all putting in enought effort in training to warrant wearing this in a race. Didn't think so! 

The other carbon shoes from nike and ultra fast, easier to get hold of and offer more than enough benefit to the average athlete that unless you are fully into all the gear, turn up in a ferrari for race day, and sit on the leaders shoulder, we will give you a funny look if you think this is the answer to your running questions and rock up to race day in them and your 9 inch shorts!!
