I suppose he's still raising the profile of ON running in a way. Its not a massive brand. Although sales on their carbon plate shoe if they have one isn't going to be helped.

Beth Potter set a new road 5k world record wearing the Asics competitor to Nike's carbon plate shoes.
Previous PB of 15:24 and runs 14:41
She is predominantly a triathlete these days.
Obviously she is a talented runner but she wouldn't have got within an arses roar of the record without the shoes.
It's not like she was a world class talent knocking on the door of the record previously

I've ordered a pair of those shoes. Can't wait to go sub 15.....

This exactly. Times are all relative to the individual, one man's sub 3 is another man's sub 4. I still remember the buzz of breaking 30 mins for 5k, it was no less a buzz than breaking 25 or 24 or 23...

Endorphin Speed 2 wonder shoe??
Asics Magic Speed if anyone is interested....
My Vaporflys have 1200k on the clock and holding up really well despite all the press about them falling apart at 400k. Ok- they are in a mess and just about in one piece but still getting nice feedback.
Bought some Next%Tempo two weeks ago on the back of some personal recommendations and they went straight back after 2 runs (one speedwork session and then a 10 miler)- absolutely dreadful. Stiff and unresponsive- no joke but I find my Clifton 7s more responsive. Maybe I have been spoilt by the Vaporfly but there is some difference between the two.
Bought a secondhand paid of Vaporflys on ebay and waiting delivery.
I've never used the Nike 60 day trial before, did you have any issues returning?
I returned my Next% tempos too - slightly different reasons -
I never get blisters from new shoes, but the tempos gave me toe and heel blisters on both feel - and the need to tighten the toe box laces more than usual caused a fold in the mesh which dug a hole in the top of my left foot between my metatarsals on the first few runs! The mesh was red from blood.
Final straw was the rubber started to split across the shoe, in that flex point just behind the AirPods - seems a common enough issue according to the Nike.com reviews.
I loved the feel of the ZoomX foam, but I just couldn’t wear them. I’d just get the vaporflys next time
Also the slapping noise takes some getting used to.
I had 120m on them when I returned them after 5-6wks, no problem
Having waited for the summer sale before buying it now seems that they are excluded, if anyone has a birthday voucher they aren't using it'd be greatly appreciated.
