Nike Zoom Mamba Running Shoes Review

The Nike Zoom Mamba falls into the racing flats and spikes category and weighs only 4.1 ounces and highly recommended for competitive runners of 800 to 5,000 meters. It was released the same time as the Nike Victory and the Nike Matumbo, in January 2010 and is the favourite amongst runners. It offers great support, while it is extremely light and breathable.

Ultra-thin and ultra-light phylon is used for the midsole to make the shoe extra light and close to the surface. Phylon gives enough protection against the pounding during a race to enable a runner to do a full distance, but unfortunately the calves of athletes will be sore. Feet are prevented of sliding within the shoe with additional carbon fibre shank for the mid foot.

Increased traction is guaranteed without additional weight to the shoe with a removable Pebax plate and spike plate containing 5 pins. Rough polymer is used for the production of the Pebax plate and a three fingered design is used for greater transition of downward energy into forward energy. The traction of the shoe is what it is all about when the designed this technology which is great for slippery surfaces.

Extra traction is what this shoe is all about for runners to go the distance in cross country and track races with the added Sharkskin covered heel. The Sharkskin is a very strong but lightweight plastic which they form like a grid and points extending from the intersections and this is layered onto the Mamba's heel.

The upper of the Nike Zoom Mamba utilizes light mesh which is strong enough to keep feet in place, while it still allows for excellent breathing of the feet. A bit of a cushion is placed at the heel in the Achilles area and it will hold a foot in pace and secures it, preventing any sliding successfully and also prevent blistering from forming.

Anyone wearing this shoe will initially feel as if their feet grew spikes as it is so light and comfortable and after a few meters an athlete will hardly know that they are wearing anything on their feet. At the recommended selling price of $110 it is quite a steal and more professional athletes are running in the Nike Zoom mamba than most other shoes. Anyone looking for an aggressive and very lightweight shoe will find it a great shoe for racing.
