The renowned Nike Zoom Streak 6 is definitely one of the most famous running shoes thanks to outstanding runner Kipchoge who wore a prototype with half insole out when he won 2015 Berlin marathon and final version in Rio 2016 Olympic marathon. It has been built to run fast and features enough cushioning to tackle long distances up to marathon, a great choice for speed workouts like intervals and tempo runs. Drop lowers to 8 mm for a more natural ride.
Many changes compared to its predecessor Air Zoom Streak 5 with light and very breathable Flymesh on top of them. An internal arch strap replaces Flywire technology (excessive pressure needed for proper fit) and provides a soft and snug midfoot wrap. American brand has released an special edition named "ULTD" ("UnLimiTeD") with bright colors (neon yellow in the forefoot, hot pink in the rearfoot) to evoke the limitless potential of elite athletes.
Midsole is again composed of full-length compression-molded Phylon foam combined with well known Zoom Air® crash pad in the heel for better shock absorption. One interesting thing in Nike Zoom Streak 6 is the integrated Pebax plate which provides some stiffness featuring a more responsive ride. Outsole has been reengineered with new asymmetric design based on different size hexagons with deep grooves in the forefoot to increase flexibility and deliver quicker toe-off. Harder rubber is used in more exposed areas to extend durability.
