Nike Air Zoom Maxfly Review

The Nike Air Zoom Maxfly lived up to all the hype at the Tokyo Olympics while being worn by 100m winners Lamont Marcell Jacobs and Elaine Thompson-Herah. Lightweight Flyweave uppers, full length carbon plates, Zoom Air chambers and Shockwave spike plates all make up the features of these ground breaking sprint spikes.

Uses

The shoe was designed for the 100-400m including hurdles. However US athlete Clayton Murphy has used them for the 800m. 

Weight

The shoes are super lightweight and come in at just 160g which is very light when compared to other models available in the market. 

Lockdown

Heel slip can be a common occurrence with spikes but these have absolute none. This is due to the notched laces that ensure no problems with lockdown. 

Size

They can run a little small so we recommend sizing a size up if in doubt. 

Price

At $180 they don't come cheap. Other sprint track spikes are generally much cheaper but if you want maximum results you have to pay the price. We do believe that they are worth every cent.

Results

Some athletes find them a little unstable around the bend during a 200m or 400m. When we tested them we found them to be relatively okay but with the air bubbles and carbon plate they do take some getting used to. 

We tested the Maxfly's in a 100m sprint we found that our test athlete improved from 10.90 to 10.75. A considerable difference for any sprinting event. To conclude they really do seem to make you faster and are worth the high price tag. Are they going to turn you into Usain Bolt? probably not but every little improve helps.

@Dylan, I think it’s tough to say but I would think you could cut 0.1-0.3 seconds from your 100 meter time.
