The adidas adiZero Prime SP track spike features a SPRINTWEB seamless upper that is designed using a laminate composite to lock the foot down during the event-specific motion of high-level acceleration while maintaining a barefoot feel. Laser-welded Spaceframe in the midfoot provides maximum support using geometry. Reduces bending through two independent pieces welded together to create a plate that is stiffer than the actual materials used to construct it. adiZero Nano plate transfers power through the whole foot while reducing torque on the midfoot to maximize energy return. Plate minimizes weight while giving the maximum energy output elite sprinters seek. Six permanent nano-ceramic compression pins are positioned to minimize braking forces and support greater propulsive impulse for accrued speed. Integrating the pins into the shoe allows the foot to be closer to the track. Recommended for 60m, 100m, 200m, 4x100m and 110 hurdles. Removable insole. Wt. 3.8 oz.

the most ridgit shoe i have ever had.. this shoe is as ridgit as the nike superfly r3 but MUCH lighter. but you have to run fast to wear them otherwise they will feel uncomfortable.. if your heel even tries to touch the ground it will almost "hurt."
this shoe is made for extrem sprinters that only want the absolut best..
i can't think of any shoe that is as light as these and still as ridgit.. i couldn't belive it was true...
i would not buy these shoe it you didn't run below 11s in 100 under 22s in 200 or under 49 in 400. and these limits are just a minimum you should run 10.5s in 100 21s 200 and 47.5 in 400.
Pros: lightweight, high performance, comfortable, breathable
Cons: non-durable

never been a fan of adidas sprint soles but these feel pretty good.. i got a pair from my coach and i liked them alot. They feel very ridgit alost the same as nike superfly r3 sole but the upper mesh on the adidas is much better. It feels like the mesh is helping the foot to stay looked down better. They are very light compared to other shoes on the market with the same type of stiffnes in the sole. But i what something more light and not as stiff in the bends when i run 400 meters. But for 100-200meter i recomend adidas Prime Accelerator very much.
the reason i only give this shoe 4 stars is that its to stiff to use in the 400 meters event but i you what a stiff and ridgit shoe go for it you won't be dissapointed
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, breathable

the best running shoe nike has ever made i don't get it why peoble buy the other shoes nike makes this is the best by far.
i have tried them all and no brand even gets close to this shoe.. it dosn't weigh much compare to what it give you. and the stability it give you is the top of the line.. even the durability is the best you can find..i have hade pumas, asics, new balance, diadora, adidas and reebok and no one is as good as nike structure... don't hesitate if you havn't tried them do it..
Pros: lightweight, good arch support, durable, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable

Since lighter weight equals faster times, then the Mizuno Wave Universe 4 road racing flat might be considered an unfair advantage. AIR Mesh™ upper that provides breathability for the life of the shoe and helps the foot stay cool. Padded collar with fabric lining adds comfort. Printed overlays are located at both the medial and lateral sides to help hold the foot in place. AP midsole delivers lightweight, responsive, yet durable cushioning. Mizuno Wave® technology disperses impact forces uniformly over the length and width of the midsole, providing unrivaled cushioning. It resists overpronation and relieves stress on the ankle and knee joints while minimizing excessive midsole collapse as the foot lands and rolls medially providing superior motion control. SmoothRide™ engineering offers maximum comfort, ultimate feel and unsurpassed performance. G3 rubber outsole provides superior grip with less and added durability in key contact points. Non-removable insole. Wt. 3.8 oz.

i love this shoe, i even run more in this shoe at practice than my spikes just because they are better and more kind to your muscles and prevents you from getting hurt. But because of the sole has so much traction you can run almost as fast with this shoe as a pair of sprint spikes.
the only bad about this shoe is that you can't use this shoe on anything else then on track and on perfect tarmac or you will ruin your shoes completely.

this shoe feel lovely. You can feel the track through the sole in a very good way. i have even tried to sprint in this shoe and it work surprisingly good. it's not as rigid but it dosn't need to be because of the flywire and it's so thin that you won't hurt yourself. it's like run barefoot.
it's more dangours to run with a shoe that dosn't fit properly that to run barefoot and the nike zoom victory fits like a glove...
i love this shoe!!!

I love that they made the bottom plate even more firm. but nike has in some way made the upper mesh fit bad. you need to have a wide fot at the back and a narrow fot at the front.
Sounds strange but it gets worse cause the size is small and you need a wide fot fill in the whole shoe. The shoe is never going to fit as well as the old modell or as well as the nike powercat.
the bottom plate is worth 10 stars but bacause of the fit i can only give it 3 stars.
Pros: high performance, lightweight, breathable
Cons: uncomfortable, non-durable

very similar to asics Japan Lite-Ning 2 but mizuno is more comfortable. I was a little skeptical about the velcro straps instead of laces, but it works very well and I don't feel that they have lost some power that velcro strap can do. A very nice shoe the only bad thing is that if you have a very narrow foot, it may be difficult to tighten the strap properly. I have a fairly normal foot and i can't tighten more because the velcro straps are too close.
I also run in the Nike powercat 2 and in them i got size 10.5 us have also had ascis Japan Lite-Ning 2 before and in them i got 11 us but in this the mizuno, I have size 11.5 which e something you should consider before you order.
except that this is an awesome shoe that is very cheap.

The most torsional shoe i have ever tried.
But it comes at a price of a heavy shoe.
For the 100 and 400meter race i do not recommend this shoe but for the 200 i highly recommend if. Let me explain.
100 meters is too short for you to become tired and you do not need that much support to stay on your toes that the monster fly provides.
But at the 400 meter race the monster fly becomes to heavy and to torsional.
I agree with the other guy best of both worlds.
But best suited for 200meter.
Pros: high performance, durable, comfortable
Cons: too heavy, not breathable

Feels like a sock with spikes
Not that comfortable to wear for a long time. Feels like they don’t support for the heel. But comfortable to run 60-400 in.
I would not wear it if I wasn't competing.
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable
Cons: uncomfortable, not breathable
