RE: So doped records are bad - but records in spring loaded shoes are OK?

Such hypocritical BS. So if it's a given that doped up runners compete with an unfair advantage then it's also a given that high energy return shoes are also conferring an advantage. Whatever the exact increase in energy return the new carbon fiber/"magic" foam aided shoes have over older shoes from pre-Adidas Boost, there is no denying that it has been increasing with technological advances and it is quantifiable and it is significant (Nike says it's as high as 85%). So let's just wipe all the POST 2005 records off the books until the high energy returns shoes are also banned. Seems fair. Who knows what Clayton, Hill, Shorter, Rodgers et al could have run with these shoes?

These Nike shoes have yet to show an improvement in the real world. The Adios boosts have performed in the real world but I'm OK with them.
