What kind of material is the inner sole made of? Rubber or foam? I can't jump in rubber shoes, only foam.

not sure.. by feel, it feels hard like rubber.. but the heel of the shoe on the outside looks kind of foamish, so maybe the heel is foam and under that is rubber, then the rest of the sole is rubber.

dno

funny thing though, my zoom waffle racers are completely grinded down, 'slippery sole', like glass, yet i have been doing jumps/dunks fine in them.. I could never do that in basketball shoes I'd slip way more than I do in the waffles.. Plus i'd have a hole in them by now if they were basketball shoes. Soon they will probably rip though, I'm surprised this pair has lasted as long as they have.

do these run the same size/fit the same as regular nike shoes?

also are the Nike Zoom Waffle XC VII the same as the nike zoom waffle racers VI? (or maybe more improved?)

dno, they look very similar, but i'd have to try on the Waffle Racer VII.. not sure if the "XC" is the same though.

so in BBall shoes with somewht fresh legs, i got 2 inches lower than in my waffles which i tested today, and my legs are dead as fuck now, so itll be interesting to see how i do with fresh legs in them.

pros- no weight at all
         comfortable
         takes no time to break in
         cool laces

cons- at first it felt like my heel was gonna come out the back but that went away

ill make a video on saturday
Monday
.5 mile run warm up, squat, bench, deadlift
Tuesday
1 mile run, xfit
Wednesday
1 mile run, bodyweight day
Thursday
.5 mile run, db/machines
Friday
1 mile run, xfit
Saturday
1 mile run, bodyweight day.

i havn't seen any marks left by them, check some videos of me using them indoors:

check that grip im getting in them too, shit is nuts.. they definitely take time getting used too though, especially if your ankles are weaker from wearing basketball shoes for so long (even more so if you wear high tops).

peace man

yeah i took a video with them when my legs were shot so ill just make a new one tomorrow since ive had time to rest.

only thing i dont like to do in them is squat, come up on my toes to much

after some reviewing.

ya they are hard to squat in because you actually sink in your heel instead of having the heel raised like in most shoes.
