Evaluation The Ekiden is the shoe that Paula Radcliffe wore when she won the Flora London Marathon. Unless youre as fast and efficient as Paula, though, you will probably have to restrict the Ekiden to shorter races.
Like the Streak, the Ekiden has a Zoom Air cushioning unit in the rearfoot. Unlike the Streak, though, theres no extra stability the Ekidens midsole is single density, with no medial post. Its ride is as responsive as, but softer than, the Streaks. its also lighter a feat achieved by using a mesh upper, blown rubber on the forefoot outsole and a smaller polyurethane shank.
