2010: Nike Zoom Streak 3
Runner: Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot
About the Shoe: The Streak 3 might be the most beloved marathon shoe by the fastest runners. Even after two updates had been released, elites kept lacing up the 3 on race day. The shoe was stripped down and lightweight, with its one-piece upper eliminating all overlays for a smooth, glove-like fit. The Streak line continues to this day. The current model, the Streak LT 2, has a nubby outsole that works well across a variety of surfaces, including pavement.
