In January 2010, Nike released a new line of spikes namely Nike Mamba, Nike Matumbo and Nike Victory. The release of this new line revolutionised the competitive edge of distance running. The neon green and bright orange flashy colours of the Nike Mamba are common racing shoes among competitors one may spot over 10 runners wearing the shoes. The shoe is suitable for steeple chase runners and fairly long distance runners of between 800-5000M.
SOLE UNIT:This is made from ultra thin, ultra light space age foam also known as phylon that makes the shoe light yet close to the ground. The space age foam gives adequate protection enabling the runner to race the full distance leaving the calves sore. The carbon fibre shank enhances support keeping the mid foot firm preventing sliding of the foot around the shoe. With a 5 pin removable plate to increase traction, the Nike Zoom Mamba shoe is perfect for cross country and track races.

TECHNOLOGY:Light weight sharkskin is layered onto the Mamba shoe heel to form a grid pattern which extends from all intersession. This enhances traction on the heel during cross country and other such races that are slippery and muddy terrain.
A pebax plate formed from a polymer that is rough forms the forefoot region of the shoe. The purpose of the three finger design is to transfer energy both forward and downward while the foot strikes the ground. The technology also enhances traction on slippery surfaces.The midfoot shank is made up of carbon fibre which is a solid black piece found in the middle of the shoe. Its function is to securely hold the foot at the same time ensuring rigidity.
If you are looking for a companion in the long distance races then the Nike Zoom Mamba is the right choice. The light weight, and spiked sole creates a firm hold on the shoe suiting the slippery tracks and muddy surfaces. The shoe has become popular in colleges and schools as well as the professional arena. The Nike Zoom Mamba shoe is the third lightest in the market to date.
