The signature training shoe of elite marathoner Meb Keflezighi, the all-new Razor is a lightweight neutral cushioned shoe engineered to run fast or long. Have a 15-miler on your training schedule today? No problem. Have a tempo run tomorrow? Yes, this is the tool you need. Want to run 6 x 800m on the track? Yes, that too. The bottom line? Even though someone like Meb wouldn’t race in this shoe, it’s a great choice for longer racing distances, too. In other words, there isn’t much the Razor can’t do.
The Razor is built on a semi-soft and very responsive single-density midsole and features a new multi-segment flat-knit upper. The Razor is more cushioned, more supportive and more comfortable for long training runs than the GoMeb Speed 3 racing shoe. It has a surprisingly supportive knit upper engineered with multi-density thread in appropriate places and a molded internal heel counter for stability and support. Plus, an an air mesh tongue for extra breathability and comfort and reflectivity details for safety.
This is the shoe for you if … you’re looking for a lightweight training shoe that’s versatile enough to run shorter, faster workouts and longer training runs.
