Nike’s ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% Shoes Are World Champion Runners

Doing a complete revamp of the 2017 Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% shoes, the American sports shoe giant has created a pair of marathon dominators. The Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% Running Shoes have been upgraded from heel to toe based on feedback from world champion runners.

One of the most notable upgrades found in these running shoes is the Vaporweave upper, which is lighter than the Nike Flyknit and absorbs significantly less water from rain and sweat to keep your feet dry. The shoes also feature more Nike ZoomX foam in the midsoles to improve energy return and thin foam pods within the heels to support the Achilles tendon during every mile of your journey. Combining Kirui, Farah, and Kipchoge customized traction patterns, you’ll feel the difference with an enhanced forefoot grip for exceptional performance when it’s raining. The shoes will be available via the Nike Run Club app for U.S. NikePlus members on April 28 for $275.

Purchase: $275
