Over the past year, we’ve seen a lot of talk of elite middle distance athletes such as Alan Webb with the Nike Zoom Victory + Track and Field shoes as well as the Nike Zoom Victory Spikes.
These spikes are ideal for track distances 800 meters and up, and will be available October 1, 2008.
Here is a quick Executive overview:
Nike’s lightest mid-distance spike ever made. The ultimate spike for 800m to 10,0000m races on synthetic track surfaces.
- Upper: High strength Flywire technology works to minimize overlays and lock the shoe to the foot
- Midsole: Compression-molded Flashlon foam for a lightweight, responsive foot strike
- Upper plate: New Zoom Miler plate design for added comfort and traction on the track
Here is one of their commercials:
Flywire’s creator Jay Meschter sums up the Nike Zoom Victory’s successes: “It also gets to that elusive thing, which is, I want the plate just to be attached to the bottom of the foot and forget about the shoe. It has wonderful freedom of movement, but it’s also holding you down.”
