Informed by Nike’s Breaking2 project, an innovation to break the two-hour marathon barrier, Nike unveils the the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%. Designed to improve the efficiency of all runners — from world-class marathoners to those training for their first distance test.
Constructed with Nike’s Flymesh across the upper with midfoot dynamic archband provides zero distraction containment. The carbon fiber plate is tuned to minimize energy loss during toe bend without increasing demand for the calf. Finally, the Nike ZoomX midsole provides cushioning over every stride to return energy for push off. The result is a racing shoe built for the exact needs of world-class marathoners.
The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% is scheduled to release on June 8, in lead colorways inspired by the speed and elegance of auto racing at Monza, at Nike.com and through select retailers. Below you can check out more images for a closer look.
