Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%

The Nike Vaporfly running shoe was first released in 2016, in conjunction to Nike's Breaking2 project that aimed to break the 2-hr marathon. It is the most advanced running shoe, scientifically designed for marathon runners. The advanced features of this shoe can make runners up to four percent more efficient than Nike's previous fastest marathon shoe. To get these benefits, you will have to fork out USD$250, so it is really for the serious runners out there.

The ZoomX midsole cushioning is designed to provide an energy return to the runner.
