    So many "reasonably" priced carbon plated shoes. When the Rocket X appeared at £140, I thought "yes" thats the shoe for me…..Then Puma released the Deviate Nitro and not Asics has the Magic speed. So Im now back to being all confused.

    I enjoy barefoot shoes, they're great for strengthening your legs and feet and promoting good form, but it's a weird choice for a race day shoe.

    Hi Mike, this is great from you that you tested Rocket X in the race! It's very useful to have tour real race reference to that shoe. I was thinking about Rocket X and now I think I can seriously plan to give it my try. 🙂 If you did you 5K and 10K PB with Rocket X, so it should be worth to add it to rotation for shorter intervals and like you to reach out for them on shorter races as well. All the Best, Peter from Slovakia 🙂
