Speed for $55

Over recent years, Mizuno has adapted their spikes to meet the demands of a broader range of American sprinters. When it comes to racing flats, it’s worth checking out the Mizuno Speed 2005, sprinting off the shelves for just $55. Running Network.com recommends it.

In updating the Speed this spring, the proven rubber outersole and nylon spikeplate remain while the upper has been redesigned for better performance. Tailored to hug the foot and visually reminiscent of the Tokyo of recent seasons, the Speed 2005 is designed to appeal to developing sprinters.

Sizes: men/unisex 6-13 * Weight: 6.6 oz. (size 9) * Upper: mesh, synthetic overlays * Midsole: EVA * Outersole: rubber heel, nylon spikeplate, eight spikes * Recommended for: sprints up to 400 meters; training and competition on all track surfaces.
