SPOTTED: Lelisa Desisa Wins Boston Marathon in Nike Zoom Streak 3

Lelisa Desisa Benti of Ethiopia has won the Boston Marathon men's elite race. Finishing in 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 22 seconds, Desisa bested two other racers who were close contenders in the final mile. Perhaps most impressive of all is the fact that this was only Desisa's second marathon, yet he ran like a seasoned pro.

What sort of sneakers does a world-class runner like Desisa lace up for an event like this? The Nike Zoom Streak 3, which is built with a lightweight, breathable upper and features responsive Zoom Air cushioning. This model was released in 2011 and has since been discontinued, but many runners stick with what they're used to, which is likely the case with Desisa.
