Overall Impression: 8/10
The Nike Zoom Bigbrotha track spike is designed for the versatility of many different sprint events. Skeletal synthetic frame offers support in a minimal, lightweight package. Internal forefoot strapping system adds lock down. Lightweight, contoured Phylon™ midsole provides cushioning. Flexible yet supportive five-spike configuration with extended midfoot support. Heel outsole pod delivers extra traction. Includes 1/4" Christmas tree spikes and a wrench. Wt. 7.2 oz.
This is one of Nike’s most versatile sprint spikes. It has been used for distances up to 800m. It has the Celar plate that was originally made for Marion Jones in the 100m but it ended up being used mostly for the 400 in my experience. In terms of aggressiveness, it lies in between in the Powercat and the Maxcat leaning more towards the relaxed side. It has a 3/4 length plate with 5 pins. The upper is very flexible and can provide lock down when needed for the shorter distances. The plate is a beast for hurdles; a lot of big names like Liu Xiang, David Oliver, Bershawn Jackson, and Kerron Clement use this for hurdling. I personally have had issues with the high arc in the shoe; I’ve had irritation in that area.
a little narrow and the high arc bothers me.
probably the most versatile spike Nike has that can range from the 100 to even maybe the 800
pretty good they’ve lasted 2 seasons right now
Pros: versatilty and awesomness on the hurdles
Cons: the arc bothers me a little bit imo
