CUSHIONING

  • Zoom Air located in the forefoot consists of a low-profile pressurized air pocket that flexes on contact for responsive cushioning.
MIDSOLE
  • Phylon is a full-length midsole foam that delivers lightweight, resilient cushioning.
  • Crash pad running 3/4 length of the shoe is a decoupled, gender-specific unit that reduces impact shock and corrects over pronation.
UPPER
  • Open mesh covering the upper provides great breathability.
  • Dynamic Flywire provides necessary support and unmatched fit while reducing the shoes overall weight.
  • EVA sockliner mimics the curvature of the heel and arch for increased comfort and support.
  • Combination Strobel Last utilizes a fiber board in the rear portion of the shoe to promote stability, and the forefoot is finished in a Strobel manner for underfoot comfort.
OUTSOLE
  • BRS 1000 carbon rubber in the heel provides durable traction.
  • Duralon blown rubber is located in the forefoot for improved cushioning.
  • Environmentally Preferred Rubber located in the forefoot provides multi-surface traction.

Comments: I like the shoe alot, it feels like a very fast trainer

Comments: I wore a few shoes from Saucony and New Balance, with the Pegasus +29's as my go-to shoe for a year and a half. I used them for anything from a 10 mile run to a 200m repeat workout. But, a few months ago I decided to buy a lighter shoe than the not-so-light Pegasus. I went to the Zoom Elite +6's. I found these shoes to be my perfect shoes. At an ounce lighter than the Pegasus and a better fitting upper, the Zoom Elites have a noticeably nicer feel all around than the Pegasus. I recommend these shoes to anyone, but more specifically to people who haven't tried a trainer under 10 ounces, they make you feel fast and make your stride more efficient, and, even on your not-so-good feeling days, these shoes will give you a boost of energy.

Comments: This was a great update to the 5. The same great cushioned, yet responsive ride, but improvements were made to the upper.  I couldn't get a perfect fit across the top of my foot in the 5's. When the laces were tightened enough to lock my foot in, the lace loops tended to dig into my foot. Not so with the 6. The conversion to the dynamic flywire system has improved the fit so much.

Comments: Had my first 3.5 mile run in these today at a quicker than normal pace for me. My current shoe of choice is the Nike LunarGlide+ 4. These definitely have extra cushion in the forefoot from the Zoom Air and I much prefer that. I tend to be a mid-foot striker at slower paces and move towards the forefoot at faster paces. These provided plenty of cushioning where I needed it most. The foot bed does seem to have some good improvements and the toe box is not as tight as the same size in the Elite 5 (but I never ran in those, just tried them on). Caution: Wear socks with the tabs in the back to prevent the dreaded blister on the Achilles! I hope to put many more miles on my new shoes!
