Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite

Nike is going against traditional running norms with a shoe that doesn't look like your typical distance racing shoe. Rather than a low-profile, low to the ground design, Nike uses their new ZoomX midsole cushioning that is said to be much lighter and softer than the usual foams and features a 21mm forefoot stack height that not only provides cushioning, but optimizes energy return. It also has a 9mm offset to reduces achilles strain and a Flyknit upper helps secure the foot. The shoe's technologies will trickle down into theNike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, Nike Zoom Fly, and the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34, which will hit store shelves this June.
