Nike Air Zoom Streak 5March 29, 2016
AW‘s team of testers try out the Nike Air Zoom Streak 5 running shoes
One of the first brands to make road racing-specific shoes almost 40 years ago, Nike’s competition shoes always hit the spot.
This latest version of the Streak – the Nike Air Zoom Streak 5 – keeps to the classic racer fit and feel: light, close fitting and fast.
The familiar Zoom Air midsole provides excellent shock absorption and a good responsive toe-off.
Given the lightweight and more minimal style of the shoe, it’s not for everyone, but those looking for a race-specific shoe for distances up to half or even full marathon shouldn’t go wrong with the Streak.
We loved: The mesh upper and Flywire wrap-around support creates a very close, sock-like fit and keeps the weight to a minimum.
