Comments: Matt, your issue with the upper is what I like about the shoe. The stretch ess of the upper let's me splay my toes, yet wraps the arch perfectly. At least for me. I particularly like the midsole vs. the 6. Gone is the feeling that a lacrosse ball is stuck under the arch. As this version breaks in i am feeling so in tune with it. It is a GREAT shoe for any workout. Tempo, sprint, hills, intervals, marathon, it can do it all in magnificent comfort. The offset is noticeably lower as well, for those who fret over that point. Nike nailed it with this version.

Comments: This shoe is plauged by the same problems as its predecessor, the Zoom Elite +6. the feel of the shoe is incredible and I really do love it and wish I could wear the shoe all day. It gives some great Road feel, despite the high heel- toe offset and it is pretty responsive for a trainer. It just makes me want to run fast whenever I put it on. However, the toebox is still extremely low and for me, with a high-volume foot, it cuts my toes up pretty much every run. The upper is made from a different material that stretchier than the 6 had, but still the problem persists. I had to return the shoes Nike because of that problem. That's the one thing holding me back from buying as many pairs of these as I could afford
