Nike Zoom Elite 10 Review. Running in Nike's best all around shoe.
As a triathlete, I'm always trying to be a stronger and faster runner at all distances from olympic distances to full marathon Ironman distances. So I need a shoe to support me in whatever is my training block for the day. From track workouts to long runs, I want a shoe that can do it all. I want a shoe that has the comfort and support to be able to go the distance, and the stability and responsiveness to kick it up a notch, especially in the same workout. I like to be as minimal as possible in my gear bag and in life in general, so I want the best shoe that I can do any running workout in.
So the question is, what's the best running shoe for me?
With all the new shoes and tech nike comes out with from the Nike Zoom Fly, Flyknit racers, the Nike Epic Reacts, Nike Frees, the short lived Lunar Epics, the Pegasus and newer editions of the Pegasus, all shoes that I've had experience running in, there's always one shoe that I continue to train and race in at all distances.
The Nike Zoom Elite.
I've ran in the Nike Zoom elite 8, Two pairs of the Nike Zoom Elite 9 (one pair I put more than 300 miles in), and the newest version, the Nike Zoom Elite 10. If you have experience running in the Zoom Elite 9, and you were a fan of the Zoom Elite 9, then you'll definitely still be a fan of the Zoom Elite 10. Something to note is that I have always liked light and minimal running shoes to race in and train in, and I have never been the type of runner that likes heavier supportive shoes. But I still need a shoe that's still supportive enough for my long runs. That's why The Nike Zoom Elite 10 is a great shoe for the neutral and minimal runner.
Here's my review of the Nike Zoom Elite 10 below along with me doing my first training day running in the Nike Zoom Elite 10 on the track.
I say it in the video, and I'll say it again here. I don't hold myself as a very experienced runner, and I don't hold myself as a great runner. I just like to run as part of my own personal fitness and I love endurance racing. I do a long run on the weekend, an interval run during the week, and try to fit a third temp run if my schedule permits. That being said, I do know what kind of shoes I like to have on my feet. And I believe the Nike Zoom Elite is a great shoe for daily training and a great shoe come race day. It's light, It's supportive, responsive, and comfortable. And the Zoom Elite 10 is a great shoe to have in your arsenal.

Happy training. Whatever might be up ahead, give it all you have.
