When Nike set out to achieve a world record-beating sub-2-hour marathon, they knew they would need an incredible shoe to help them smash their goal. And so the Zoom VaporFly 4% was born.

 

The Zoom VaporFly is Nike's fastest ever shoe. A carbon fibre plate enhances the push-off of the shoe to give you the feeling of being propelled forwards with every single stride. The carbon fibre plate is housed in an ultra-light midsole made from Nike's new ZoomX foam, which delivers the greatest return on energy yet.

 

A lightweight upper with an arch band locks your foot down, ensuring no energy is lost in unnecessary movement. Together this results in an average net gain in running efficiency* that is so impressive (4%), Nike even put it in the name.

 

Eliud Kipchoge completed Nike’s Breaking run in 2:00:25, just seconds off of achieving a sub-2-hour marathon and easily breaking the world record.

 

*The Zoom VaporFly was tested against the Nike Streak 6, a fast shoe in its own right.

Technical running socks

When superstar track and field coach Bill Bowerman met talented middle-distance runner Phil Knight, an unlikely partnership was formed.

 

Bowerman was looking for lighter, more durable running shoes for his Oregon University Runners, and Knight was searching for a way to make a living without having to give up athletics all together. The two put their heads together and came up with a shoe that featured outsoles modelled on a waffle iron – unconventional, but somehow it worked.

 

Bowerman and Knight named their new venture Nike, after the Greek goddess of victory, and began selling their shoes from out the boot of a car. From these humble beginnings, the company has grown into a sports industry market leader, and its distinctive ‘swoosh’ logo is arguably the most recognisable brand logo on the planet.

 

Despite this success, Nike’s mission statement remains the unchanged: To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. Because if you have a body, you’re an athlete.
