NIKE BEAT THE SOX OFF THE COMPETITION
Nobody came close to Nike last month when an independent panel of experts rated the best running shoes in the world in a special report in this magazine.
We had seven out of the top 30 shoes. Our closest competitor had only four in the top 30.
The experts evaluated shoes from more than 100 manufacturers on all the things that are really important to a serious runner. Everything from heel width and counter to sole make-up and upper softness.
And when all the results were in. Nike ran away with more top 10 honors than anybody.
Quite an achievement. But hardly a surprise. It only proves what we’ve been saying all along, When you’re running with Nike. you’re running with a winner.
