Blending lightweight performance and comfort, the Nike Zoom Matumbo 2 is an elite-level distance spike intended for events from 3,000m to 10,000m.


Important Shipping Note: U.S. sales only.


The Nike Zoom Matumbo 2 is a pedigreed distance spike built for performance. The mesh upper feels almost weightless, and dynamic flywire locks your foot in place, making this shoe feel like an extension of your foot. The light and resilient midsole will carry you through any 3000m to 10000m race. Includes ten 1/4 inch spikes and a spike wrench.

Sizing is based on the men's scale. Women should subtract 1.5 sizes from their women's shoe size. Example: Women's 8 equals size 6.5 for this shoe.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I love these shoes. They are super light, comfortable, and fast. They worked very well in distances ranging from 800 to 3200 meters. I highly recommend these shoes, and next year's model should be even better.

Comments: I am a mid-distance runner who was looking for something light and more balanced than my 400-800 spikes to use in the mile or steeplechase. These shoes are exactly what I needed. There is much more to the heel than one would find in a Zoom Victory, but still allows athletes running as short as a mile to get up on their toes for a kick. Really comfortable fit as well. Tried racing the 1000m with them, but they weren't stable enough to handle tight indoor turns at that kind of speed. I would definitely recommend these for anyone running the 1500 or higher on the track.
