Matumbo refers to the Nike Zoom Matumbo, a track shoe made by Nike for elite distance runners racing the 3,000 to 10,000 meter in competitions.

Nike named the shoes the Zoom Matumbo after Bernard Lagat, a US elite distance runner, said that the hole in the back of the spikes reminded him of a Matumbo, which in his native African language means the best part of the goat.

Nike's Product description:
