Nike Air Zoom MaxFly Sprinting Spikes For The Future

The controversy behind the Nike Air Zoom MaxFly sprinting spikes is interesting. Some former athletes claiming that the shoe provides for an advantage on the track compared to athletes wearing other sprinting spikes. True or not, this shoe has definitely had quite the welcome from popular sprinters such as the multiple time Olympic gold medalist, Shelly Ann-Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica. She was wearing these when she ran the fastest time in over 3 decades in the 100m race. Fraser-Pryce ran 10.63. The sprinting spikes do not only look good, but they also boost of performance. The Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson – Herah also did the most whilst wearing these. In not so many words, in one of her interviews when asked about the sprinting spikes, she says success comes from preparation and consistent hard work by her and her coach. Not from the Air Zoom MaxFly.
