Additional Information

Chrissie calls the T7 "an amazing shoe!" She was rocking a pair when she came from behind on the run leg to win her fourth Ironman World Championship in Kona in 2011.

This incredibly light road-racing shoe is the fastest in the pack, with a new eye-catching upper for fly-by style. The streamlined, asymmetric upper works with the anatomy of the foot to perfectly wrap the arch securely from start to finish.


Available in men's sizes only. For women we suggest ordering 1.5 sizes smaller than what you usually wear. If you're curious, Chrissie wears a 10.

Note: As this running shoe is a very lightweight, minimal support racing flat, the vast majority of runners will not find it "enough shoe" for a full marathon. If you have a light frame and a biomechanically efficient stride, however, you may be able to get away with it. We suggest you work up to it in several half marathon-plus races beforehand to see how it works for you before running in it for a full marathon.

Bought this shoe a few months back for my 2011 racing season. In word one, AMAZING! This is by far the lightest, most comfortable racing flat I have ever owned! If you are racing distances from half marathon on down, buy this shoe (Just make sure to get a half size smaller than your everyday training shoes).

i got my t7's at my local running store and right off the bat I enjoyed every bit of them besides the side lacing which I quickly grew a custom to.they were my trainers for the track season and they were working fine. like all of my running shoes they got dirty, and sometimes very smelly which as a 15 year old boy i had no problem with. but then at one of my track meets my club coach whom im very close to told me about some cases of runners buying the T7's and only lasting them a month, which at first i didnt believe. then track season ended and i started running my longer distances training for the upcoming xc season and i soon figured out that what my coach said was true. and I felt pushed away from the T7 and to another shoe. i might of gotten a bad batch or something but id like to figure out what went wrong.

Comments about T7 Racer:

The T7 Racer is a run specific shoe that should be used during races or faster training runs. Simply put, it's my weapon of choice when I want to run fast. And if for some reason I show up to a group run wearing these, just think of it as a friendly challenge.... Read my full review Here:

    Comments about T7 Racer:

    very light but I had to send back. I wear an 8.5 or 9 so I ordered the 9 and it was still too small! I would recommend you try at least a 1/2 size bigger than you would normally wear. although i didn't keep them, I would be concerned about durability. felt like a great racing shoe or an every day beat around the house in something comfortable shoe.

    Comments about T7 Racer:

    Very good racing flat weighing in at 5.9oz. for size 10.5. This shoe provides ample cushioning for a racing flat and is perfect for 5k & 10k, also for the more experenced/lighter runner the Half & Marathon distance, too.
    Note: men size up. I wear a 9.5 Launch/Ghost however in the T7, I wear a 10.5.
