Why We Love It: We couldn’t put this book down once we started reading it. When it comes to running shoes and running gear, Nike has been a go-to for many runners, from beginner to elite. This book does a deep-dive into the recent controversy surrounding Nike and the training groups they support. The details and facts are unsettling, and one thing becomes clear – although there have been no overt illegal practices, Nike seems to have a pattern of supporting practices that fall into a grey area of riding the fine line between cutting edge and unethical. This book gives a glimpse into the world of high-stakes elite running, and the lengths that some will go to gain the biggest competitive advantage. We’ll leave it up to you whether you think Nike has gotten it right, or whether they have crossed the line. We will keep our opinion to ourselves.
