I just do not feel like this shoe was a match for me. I have read a lot of positive reviews on this shoe, sadly, I cannot praise this shoe as much as some others.
- The fit and feel of the Dart 10 gets most of the modification. In this model, a new midfoot strap sits between the eyelets. It helps runners find their most comfortable fit and enhances the midfoot hold of this shoe.
- A thicker, but softer mesh is introduced in this shoe. Durability is seen as the most direct result of the thicker mesh as breathability continues to be optimal.
- Nike also added more foam to the ankle collar and tongue for a more comfortable ride. There should be a lesser risk to develop blisters or irritation because of the plush padding.
The fit of the Dart has been enhanced in the 10th version. There is improved midfoot and heel security because of the added overlays. The toe box has just enough room for the toes to splay without being uncomfortable. Medium is the available width of the shoe. Nike markets the Dart as a having standard shoe length.
The outsole of this Nike road shoe is very basic with almost flat rubber configuration for better transitions. There are also flex grooves to give the shoe more flexibility. This Waffle outsole is covered in hard-wearing carbon rubber for traction and durability. A crash pad helps a little with the cushioning and shock absorbing features of the shoe. This outsole configuration is very similar to the outer sole unit of the Nike Dart 12.
Nike uses two midsole foams in the Dart 10. Both the Reslon and Phylon midsole runs the length of the shoe for consistency in cushioning. There is a softer ride because of this combination.
A breathable mesh is the most prominent part of the upper. It gives durability a boost because of its thickness. There is a combination of TPU and printed overlays all over the shoe for superb hold. A midfoot saddle helps with the form-fitting fit of the shoe. Nike adds a midfoot strap between the eyelets to help with the cinching and midfoot lock down. The tongue and collar have plush padding.
