Evaluation The Equipment Neftanga is one of the very best racing shoes on the market for distances under 5K. Its entire forefoot is made from Adidass springy Adiprene+ cushioning material, which gives it an incredibly smooth, flexible feel. Its also very light, but wearable at the same time, thanks to a shape thats not excessively curved.
The new version keeps the originals excellent midsole and outsole, and changes the upper for one with a zipped cover over the usual laces. This adds 16g to the original weight, but Adidas limits the damage as much as possible by replacing the rest of the upper with a completely open mesh. Want to hear the surprise? The zipped upper fits even better than the conventional version. Its better sculpted in the midfoot, and roomier in the toebox. As ever at this weight, its only a shoe for light, efficient runners.
