I believe the shoes are more of a placebo for non-elites so like if you want to throw your money away but they are very overpriced.
They are very good shoes. Possibly also a placebo. Definitely over priced.
But in the grand scheme of things, for me at least, $250 is no big deal.
I don't doubt that they're very good shoes, but in no way is anyone going to improve 4% just by wearing them. Very likely a placebo effect. Times of the elites have not changed AT ALL since wearing these shoes. The 4% naming and subsequent Breaking2 project will be taught in business classes 30 years from now - this is genius marketing.
I may consider getting a pair from a friend at Nike for $125, but the Zoom Fly at $75 is almost more appealing - especially with a hilly course like Boston coming up.....
