Customer Reviews

Comments: I immediately got home to open these shoes and they look AMAZING! They forgot to send me the spikes, but quickly shipped them in 2 days so I guess thats not bad. I just ran with the Zoom Mamba 2 today (12/6/12) and the feeling is inexplainable. They felt like they just disappeared once I ran and all I could feel was the breeze and the feeling of FAST. I would recommend these shoes to anyone doing the 800m-5k or the steeplechase. The breathability is amazing and I've been getting compliments on the shoe every time I take them for a run. I just wish they were as light as the matumbos (3 oz.) although they are pretty light.

Comments: This spike is awesome! I ran in it all season with no problems! The carbon fiber shank is light 
and responsive, with lots of bounce during each step! I ran the 800 and 1500, ran a 400, and 
high jumped in this shoe. The spike is ridiculously lightweight and is an excellent mid-long 
distance spike! I highly recommend it to anyone running any distance higher than 400!
