Can their multisport-specific features deliver tangible benefits for triathletes? We find out

Zoot Ultra TT 7.0 running shoes review

First up, congratulations to Zoot for delivering such a multisport-specific shoe, beginning with their patented Quick-Lace system, which works better than anticipated. A simple yank of the toggle tightens the elastic lace, keeping your foot nicely in place.

It does leave a flapping loop, but you soon acclimatise to that. Tiny holes in the outsole offer a modicum of drainage and breathability, and a confident heel loop ensures a swift T2.

Fit is a little snug around the toes, so those who prefer to run with socks should potentially go half a size larger than normal.

We were concerned the Ultra’s sock-like feel and lack of cradle would affect stability, but those reservations proved unfounded. Overall, a pretty impressive shoe that just ducks under 300g (294g).

Verdict: A superb tri-specific run shoe, with some useful features, 84%
