Our verdict

Lightweight and minimalist design for the fast boys and girls! The low profile midsole keeps the weight down and certainly for shorter road racing distances, it ensures a great, aggressive toe-off putting all your power into the drive off.

First impressions

It's light and fast - exactly what you need in a road racing shoe. There's no carbon here - just fresh air built for speed. Only the fastest need apply.

The Streak is a classic racing shoe and it's been at the heart of the Nike line-up for years. If you are racing over longer distances such as the marathon, don't discount the bulkier but still light, Air Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2. However, if light and fast is your goal the carbon-plated Zoom Fly 3 is a great shoe and a cheaper alternative to the king of racers, the Nike Zoom X Vaporfly Next%.


Nike Zoom Air features in the midsole to supply your stride with extra bounce; it combines pressurised air with internal fibres to deliver responsive cushioning that springs back fast, so you can move faster. Zoom Air's advantage is that, as well as providing excellent impact protection, it boasts a super lightweight and low-profile design which lets your feet sit closer to the ground, enhancing proprioception so that you can run more efficiently. 


A spike-like fit from the lightweight, breathable mesh hugs the foot and keeps things simple.


An adaptive rubber outsole completes the Zoom Streak 7. Its traction pattern features hexagon-like configurations of differing sizes, inspired by generative design that delivers flexible, multi-directional grip. 


If you are checking this shoe out, then you already know how it's going to perform. It's light and fast and only for efficient, quicker paced athletes. For 5k on the roads, it's excellent.
