Great overall Flat

Overall, it is the ideal flat for training or racing. Enough support for 10 or 15k but agressive enough for track work outs. Weight is about average for a racing flat. Just a sturdy great flat
Pros: agressive, breathable upper, durable
Cons: colors

Nike MayFly - Men's
The Nike Mayfly is a minimalist racing shoe designed for the runner with an efficient running style looking to break their personal bests. Ripstop nylon upper with synthetic toe piece. Phylite™ midsole/outsole combination with rubber pods. This shoe is not designed to pound out the miles. It weighs just 4.8 ounces and lasts only 100 kilometers (62 miles), but that's the quickest 100 kilometers you are likely to run. Wt. 4.8 oz.

Good for its intended purpose

I originally got this shoe because I thought it might be good road races. The shoe preforms well and is responsive, but it just dosnt push you like a flat shoed in the last straight away in 5ks. however, It is advertised as a marathon shoe that last up to 100km. In longer races where the speed is not as nessicary, its flaw becomes less of a factor. The lasting up to the 100km is worst case senario, I have freinds where theirs lasted up to 300miles. the upper is a little unbreathable and hot but I dont find it much a problem. Overall, for longer distances the shoes is amazing, anything 8k and under not recadmended. That is if your running 5min miles. Good for the price, but better exist.
Pros: lightweight, responsive
Cons: not aggresive, upper is hot

can these be used in 5k races?

Yes, they can be used for 5ks, but under really fast conditions they seem to not take on final sprints well though. Kinda like driving in a high gear with out the abilaty to drop a gear or 2 to speed up in the end. But they work well. My fasted 5k in them is 16:13.

What happens to these shoes after 100k?

do they like fall apart or somthing?
That is worse case senario. I know people who have made theirs last up to 300 miles. But there is the risk of it litteraly falling apart in a race if it is beat up badly. But as long as they arnt put through sub 5min mile conditions they should be fine.

You would Probally not be able to because the sole is part of the shoe and does not come out.

what is the weight of these shoes in kilograms and would they ok for 1500m and 3000m

im 13 and i need something with cushoning because of my bad feet
Unless if you intend to run under 5min mile pace these should do the job. There is better out there, but the mayflys are still good just not under really fast conditions.

how good in the 800meter?

It is a very long distance shoe, and doesnt preform well in sub 5min pace speed. For 10km and up works amazingly though
