Comments: This is my third year in these shoes. Running in the second version last year and the first version the previously. I agree the update to the upper is a dramatic improvement on the ride and comfortability factors. Love the shoes for what it is. The new upper is so much more durable now though that the sole wears out before the rest of the shoe ( aka the insole and outsole.) I wish they would put a more durable rubber on the outsole or just a few more millimeters of the current rubber so I could really run this shoe through a full year of training. I use them specifically for fast interval training, and maybe 1 or 2 5k's a year. I am running on the white midsole of the shoe before I retire them and just want more rubber as to prevent this problem

Comments: Warning - very narrow heel on these. My heel was hanging over the edge of the sole :( And I have a normal heel size Shame because otherwise it seemed like a great racing flat with comfortable upper and good cushioning for the light weight.

Comments: The description says a firm ride but it is really quite soft. Still a good shoe though; light with a comfortable upper. The original Streak XC is still the best though.

Comments:I love these shoes I bought another pair already because training and racing in them wears them out pretty fast. Avg 30-37 miles 3 months time 350 total miles.

Comments: These shoes are awesome XC shoes and great on uneven terrain. They have a low profile and feels very comfortable on the feet. The forefoot doesn't bother me and feels just right, but i dont know how long these will last. So far they are holding up. Sizing, i always get 1/2 size up for nike.

Comments: I ordered these shoes online. Although the Streak is a great shoe, please know that the red color that is specified in the description is NOT red. It's pink. Bright pink. Not sure if retailers (including Running Warehouse) are just specifying the color based on Nike's description, but there is ZERO red in this shoe. It's neon bright pink. Not my cup of tea. However, the shoe itself is great.

Comments: I'm not very convinced with the update. in the sole on the forefoot it feels as if an air cushion was added and it is very irritating and feels out of place. I wish they kept the sole of the older versions of this shoe. The material around the toes feels nice though. Love the look and the colors, although a wider variety of colors would be nice but i know nike could do better.

Comments: These are great. The update to the upper is such an improvement from the previous versions. I've been running in these for 3-4 years (well the previous models at least). The new upper is so soft- it's like wearing a sock. They are light weight, but still provide some cushion. Best part of the new upper is the tongue is soft again like the XC2 and the stitching over the toe box that would cause blistering is gone. Hopefully the sides won't blow out as quickly as the old versions.
