DESIGNED FOR RACE-DAY SPEED
Nike's most efficient and fastest marathon shoe to date, the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Unisex Running Shoe provides superior responsiveness.
The newly designed, ultra-light Nike ZoomX midsole foam delivers our greatest energy return yet to help you meet your ultimate goal.
A lightweight, full-length carbon fiber plate feels like it's propelling you forward as you get closer to the finish line.
A nearly seamless one-piece Flymesh upper is designed to be more breathable through the top of your foot to help keep it cool from 5K to 26.2.
Behind the Design"This shoe is a game changer," says running champion Shalane Flanagan. Built around the same innovations as the Breaking2 runners' shoes is the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%—the fastest marathon shoe Nike has ever sold. In lab tests, it measured roughly 4% better for running economy than Nike's latest and fastest marathon racer, the Zoom Streak 6. But those are just numbers.
"I've been known to have 'diva' feet," Flanagan says, "but when I first tried the Zoom Vaporfly 4%, it was love at first run." The shoe is a state-of-the-art statement of pure speed. Its ultra-responsive cushioning creates a feeling like you're being pushed toward the finish line. Afterall, it was built to move running forward. Including your own running.
