With this in mind, I'm going to refer you to a a friend's review of the Nike Zoom Streak 3. The Zoom Streak 3 is described as follows by Running Warehouse:
"Designed and developed by the best marathoners in the world, the Streak 3 is a versatile 5k to marathon road racing shoe. The Cushlon LT midsole and Zoom Air unit in the heel gives ample support and cushioning. Ounce for ounce, the one piece upper reduces siginficant weight and also allows for rapid water drainage."
The shoe weighs 6.7 oz, and as a racing flat, appears to have a relatively low heel (don't know the actual drop numbers). It's a shoe that I have looked at a few times, mainly because it appears to have been the shoe on the feet of both Robert Cheruiyot and Meb Keflezighi in the 2010 Boston Marathon (check out the video below to see what I believe to be the Zoom Streak 3 in action on the first and last runners to pass by). Cheruiyot won Boston this year, and Meb won the NYC Marathon last year - not a bad pair of endorsements for a running shoe!

dailymile Team member Caleb Masland (see picture at left). Caleb is a Nike fan and a seriously fast runner (he ran sub-3:00 in Boston this year), and just posted a review of his experience so far with the Zoom Streak 3 on his blog, Becoming Bonkproof. Here's a short excerpt:
"The Streak 3 are Nike’s update to the Marathoner, so they are intended to have a blend of responsiveness and durability. I’d say they are true to this in general. They are not as soft as the Lunaracers, or a Saucony Kinvara (my other new shoe….), but they do feel very responsive, flexible, and quick in transition. I do feel that they will hold up very well over the course of a half or full marathon as well."
