I can say that The Wire 2 has treated me very well in everything from a 1500-5000.
Use - The Brooks Wire v2 is perfect for a multitude of running meets, ranging from mid-distance to long-distance races. These competitions can range from a mile all the way up to 10000 meters.
Spike Type - Similar to the Nike Zoom Mamba 5, pyramid spikes are attached to track running shoe. These measure ¼ inch in length for lightweight, multi-surface grip. These dig into the track surface with every stride of the runner for a stable performance.
Spike Plate - A Pebax® Rnew distance plate with a five-well configuration is added to the platform design. It hosts the detachable pins of the track shoe for optimal grip on the track surface. It also exhibits durable qualities, resisting wear and tear.
To enable a trimmed-down weight, the Wire v2 features a new ultra-light mesh upper. With its makeup, the upper offers optimized breathability and security.
A welded, no-sew forefoot capture is also executed on the upper design. As the name suggests, it holds the foot in place for optimal lockdown.
For added grip on the track surface, sharkskin outsole is incorporated into the outsole configuration. It amplifies the slip resistance of the track shoe for stability and speed.
The Brooks Wire v2 is designed in men’s sizing measurement, following the standard width. Thus, women are advised to deduct 1.5 from their usual size to secure precise fit and size.
Intended for a featherlight wrap around the foot, a mesh upper is part of the track spike’s composition. It envelopes the natural contours and shape of the foot for ultimate lockdown. Support and security are furthered by the forefoot capture added into the upper.
Engineered for superior traction on the track surfaces, the outsole of the Wire v2 sports both Pebax® Rnew plate and sharkskin outsole. These components combined together solicit not only traction, but also durability.
The distance plate is made of thermoplastic polymer that exhibits high-strength qualities. It supplies flexibility and durability while maintaining minimal weight. It also has good surface traction for propulsion.
Supplementing the spike plate is the sharkskin outsole. It is composed of a textured rubber, permitting slip resistance and added grip. It also pronounces the durability of the track shoe.
Running full-length on the midsole compartment is the famous BioMoGo midsole. Aside from supplying the running spike’s responsiveness, it also offers plush underfoot cushioning. It is also highly durable, resisting natural wear and tear. What makes it stand out from other midsole materials is the fact that it’s made of environmentally friendly and biodegradable materials.
The upper of the Brooks Wire v2 is comprised of reinforced mesh. Aside from increasing structural integrity, it also amplifies breathability. This, in turn, promotes a healthy foot environment. It also encourages the foot’s natural flex with its flexible properties.
A seamless forefoot capture—intended for lockdown—is also added to the overall structural construction. It holds the foot securely in place, preventing slippage.
