After creating our fastest and lightest shoe, the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly 4%, Nike designers asked, what’s next? Could it be faster? Could it be lighter? With feedback from elite runners, and by experimenting with new materials, we found our answer. Introducing our fastest ever.
Added ZoomX foam in the forefoot delivers exceptional energy return and increased impact protection. Meanwhile, the full-length, carbon-fiber plate underfoot provides a propulsive sensation to help you push the pace.
All-new Nike VaporWeave Material
The new Nike VaporWeave upper adds strength while reducing weight. Plus it’s highly breathable and has minimal water absorption, keeping you light on your feet.
To enhance the grip in a variety of weather conditions, designers overhauled the traction pattern on the forefoot. And to help runners cut tight through the turns, they added new, deeper-contoured threads.
Inspired by World Champion Runners
With insights from elite runners like Mo Farah and Shalane Flanagan, Nike designers updated the full Vaporfly system from top to bottom—creating our fastest racing shoe ever.
