I am not going to lie. This spike is out of this world and amazing. I will go to say that whether it be a 3 mile race or a mile race this spike can decrease your time by at least 20 secs or more. I found this spike to be so comfortable and right before my first meet of wearing these I thought to myself that this race was going to be a good one! Turns out I was only 15 secs from my pr and it was an indoor track so for offseason racing it wasn't to bad. I have only one complaint with this shoe and that is Nike wanted to make this spike super light so they added the perfed tongue for flexibility and breathability. I swear to god the tongue is going to drive you crazy and it is annoying to put on unless you have super thin socks or run barefoot. Long story short I haven't seen the best of these shoes so with my track season underway I will see if I will stick with these bad boys or go with another brand like Saucony.
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, breathable, cool colors
Cons: perfed tongue

If you are looking to be up there with the lead pack this xc shoe can definetly do it. It weighs very little and it is very comfortable. The only problem I have with it is it does run a little narrow and it is sometimes hard to put the shoe on. All in all a very good purchase.
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, breathable

A great spike offered by Nike that I used primarily for the 800, mile, and even the 2 mile. Although it said it is used for 400-1500 events it is pretty durable but I eventually bought a pair of other spikes because like it says it does run a half size small so consider that when buying this product. Overall a good shoe and it helped me run a 5:16 mile and a 11:03 two mile.
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, breathable
Cons: half size small

The Nike Zoom Matumbo 2 track spike features high strength Flywire technology that minimizes overlays and locks the shoe to your foot. Phylon™ midsole with carbon fiber midfoot shank provides cushion and support. Four-spike, Pebax® three-fingered plate offers increased traction. Includes ten 1/4" spikes and a wrench. Wt. 4.2 oz.
 

Is the bottom color of the spikes gold?

I have seen other versions of the Matumbo's 2 online where the bottom of the blue spike is blue and white. In this case, the preview is white and gold on Eastbay. It's not a huge concern, but I wanted to make sure that the preview of this shoe is right.

 Saucony Velocity 4 - Men's
Saucony Velocity 4 - Men's
The Saucony Velocity 4 offers the distance track athlete versatility in a lightweight spike. Lightweight, breathable mesh upper with supportive overlays flexes perfectly and supports the foot through the turns. Die-cut EVA midsole provides shock attenuation and responsive cushioning over middle and long distances. Seven-spike Pebax® plate, XT-900® outsole. Comes with 1/4" pyramid spikes and a wrench. Wt. 6.6 oz. ****International shipping restrictions may apply.****
 

Does this shoe run a 1/2 size small or does it run true to size?

The majority of Saucony distance/xc spikes I have found run a 1/2 size small and not true to size and I was curious if this was the case here with these spikes. Also is this the same with the Saucony LD2 spike? My last question is with a 7 spike plate configuration is that better than a spike that only has lets say a four spike configuration?

When will there be more sizes in stock and doesn't the Waffle 7 have another color that is black, orange and white?

Only one type of color has my size and the red/white/black kind has had only size 15 for a long time. Also doesn't this shoe has another color to it that is orange, white, and black?

Is this spike good for outdoor short distance, like 100m?

Yes but it is primarily supposed to be used for longer distances. I actually would recommend the Saucony Showdown. I have read that it is a very good sprint spike but you may want to do research on that one.
