Nike Zoom Waffle Racer XC – Still in Beta

Posted by scott on October 14, 2008

I have taken the Zoom Waffle cross country flats out for a few spins, but the verdict is still out for me.  These were a great find because they were so cheap, and they are fun to try, but still not sure if they will be a long term shoe for me or not.  For one thing, they are a 1/2 size too big, which I knew when I bought them.  But that might turn out to be a bigger deal than I thought.  I also have been running them on pavement more than they are probably intended for.  This should probably just be a trail shoe, and I’m pushing it.

But I’m not done with them yet, and I still need to get them out for a good sized (8-10 mile) trail run before I decide if they are keepers.  And overall I love how lightweight they are.  But I think I have decided that they won’t be a good ongoing option for pavement, so I still need to sort that out.

I’m seriously thinking about turning to low-top Converse Chuck Taylors for the roads.
