Behind the Design
Since its debut in the summer of 2017, the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% has seen its share of medal stands. That includes New York, where Shalane Flanagan (2:26:53) and Geoffrey Kamworor (2:10:53) both won in the shoe. Five of the six podium finishers in Boston wore it, and Galen Rupp had a pair on when he became the first American in 15 years to win the Chicago Marathon. Flanagan puts it simply: “This shoe is a game-changer”. Science backs this up, as the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% is the most efficient 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. So it’s the fast. But how does it feel? “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”.
