Fast Flats: U.S. Olympic Marathoners’ Racing Shoes

Kara Goucher, Nike

Kara Goucher has had a coaching change (parting ways with Alberto Salazar), a life change (she had a baby boy, Colt, in September 2010) and now it’s possible she’ll be changing her racing shoes, too. She’s still a Nike athlete so we’ll know she’ll be wearing the Swoosh in London. Here’s what she told us last week: “I’m most likely going to use a new shoe for the first time!” Goucher says. “I have run all of my marathons and half-marathons in the Lunar Racer, but I am leaning toward wearing the Zoom Streak. It’s time for a change!” The Lunar Racer weighs about 6.1 oz. (women’s size 8.0), while the Zoom Streak 4 tips the scales at about 6.2 oz. (women’s size 8.0)
