2004: New Balance RC205
Runner: Timothy Cherigat
About the Shoe: The New Balance RC205 that Timoth Cherigat wore to win the 2004 Boston Marathon is the same model worn by U.S. marathoner Khalid Khannouchi when he ran a then-world record 2:05:38 at the 2002 London Marathon. New Balance no longer makes a 205 competition shoe, but its 1400v3 is the most similar shoe, and it’s worn by many speedy marathoners today.
