INTRODUCTION

Nike's Matumbo is a lightweight distance spike designed for 3000m to 10,000m events.

CUSHIONING

  • To keep weight down, this shoe contains no additional cushioning technologies.
MIDSOLE
  • Flashlon full-length midsole for a lightweight, responsive ride.
UPPER
  • Lightweight mesh comprises the upper for lightweight breathability.
  • Flywire over the midfoot is made of high tensile strength fibers layered between TPU and foam for a strong, lightweight, and dynamic fit.
  • Slip Lasting involves wrapping and stitching the upper in a bootie-like shape before it is glued to the midsole to increase flexibility and decrease weight.
OUTSOLE
  • Horseshoe Pebax Plate consists of a lightweight, horeshoe-shaped polymer plate in the forefoot for increased propulsion.
  • Sharkskin extending from the midfoot to the heel, is a thermoplastic grid-like piece for increased traction.
  • Contains 4 spike receptacles per shoe.

 

Comments: This is by far the best track spike I've ever worn (tried at least 5 different pairs from Brooks, Puma, and Asics over the years but never tried Nike's since didn't have good experience with them in the past until a friend highly recommended these). The fit is snug without being too tight or having uncomfortable pressure points. There is a lot of arch support. The spike is also super light. I've used them from 800m to 5000m without issue except for the very first time, left pinky toe did get "cut" by chaffing but went away after that race. They let you run fast without getting in the way. Now waiting for the Matumbo 2's to come out (same lower design but supposedly an even better upper fit with true "fly wire" wires instead of just wires glued to plastic).
