36:37 for 10k in them on Saturday Very Happy


Yep saw that, very nice.

Went to the Nike store near me to try sizes but they didn't stock them & have to be ordered. Tried on something similar for sizing so will see how they go. Was planing on ordering them later as the missus gets 10% off with a work voucher from Nike online but they gave me a 10% student discount to order then in store & will be delivered to work. Worked out at 188, bargain Neutral

not shabby... Smile


34:12 for me last Wednesday. That was a minute faster than last year on a similar but seemingly more accurate (longer) course.

They are now in a high security vault and will not see light of day until VLM...

What model did you try on instead? By all accounts I've read, the zoom fly comes up half a size bigger, so if you were going by them, then the vaporfly you have ordered might be a bit snug.

People I know who ordered online just order 2 or 3 pairs, and then returned the one's that weren't quite right.

On cost, at least 10% off saves more money when something is more expensive Wink

Can't remember the model I tried, if they don't fit at least I can return to the Nike store down the road.
If I truly get 4% they they are a bargain, probably will be an actual payback in failed sub 3 mara entry fees Smile

When I click on shoes.com I get a message that they won't sell to EU countries?

Definitely sold on these but not until I'm running properly again or I'll be too tempted to use them for training!

Would ideally like to try them on first but I doubt anyone round here will sell them, although I am going to Leeds this week Idea

Stenard - that 10k time is a bit like my 5k to HM time. 😉

JeffB - you could ring Nike up in Durham, as they might get returns and youd get a good idea for size. Also, size in Boro might sell the streetwear version, which is identical, apart from the Carbon plate and foam in the sole. So perfect for trying on.

Great pace both of you.

I ran a 15:27 4k in a sprint Tri on Sunday. Not the fastest shoe in T1, but makes up for it on pace

mattsurf - elastic laces? Or just wore them loose enough to slip on?
