Schoolmeester, a lifelong runner himself, says Nike was working toward a singular goal: to create a shoe that would make the world's fastest marathoners even faster. (Related: I Own 80+ Pairs of Sneakers But Wear These Almost Every Day)
The oNike Air Max 90 Femmene-two punch is Nike's ZoomX foam—which has the highest energy return ever seen in independent testing at the Runner's World lab—and a full-length carbon fiber plate. Together, they reduce the amount of energy a runner needs while maximizing propulsion. Translation: If you can use your energy more economically, you can run faster.
Of course, not every runner will get that 4 percent bump, which Nike says is an average. Factors such as running form, foot strike, or weight can all impact the wearing experience and the results, says Schoolmeester. Still, allNike Air Vapormax Mujer of the runners in the Nike-funding testing experienced saw improvement while wearing the 4% versus a traditional racing flat—and no one experienced a decrease in performance, he says.
It's not just Nike that thinks they're amazing, either. Runners in the Vaporfly 4% run 3 to 4 percent Nike Epic React Flyknit Womensfaster than similar runners in other shoes, according to an independent New York Times analysis of almost 500,000 marathon and half-marathon finish times on Strava. It bested the next fastest shoe, Nike Zoom Streak, by 1 percent according to their data.
Now, almost a year and a half since Nike introduced the original Zoom Vaporfly 4%, the latest iteration (which hit shelves earlier this month) features a new Flyknit one-piece upper that makes the shoes even lighter and, theoretically, faster. Thanks to all the buzz, the shoes are notoriously difficult to cNike Air Vapormax Womensome by. Nike releases them in small batches, which quickly sell out at $250 a pop. That might change in the future—Schoolmeester says they have and will continue to increase production.
Don't want to wait? You can find the bouncy ZoomX foam (minus the carbon fiber plate) in the Nike ZNike React Element 55 Womensoom Pegasus Turbo ($180; nike.com). (Here, our fashion director put them to the test.)Last year, the sports and footwear company debuted its fastest running shoe yet—the Vaporfly Elite, which was designed specifically to help elite marathoner Eliud Kipchoge and others run a marathon in a tNike Air Max 90 Womensime faster than two hours—a human endurance barrier that echoes, to some degree, the plight of the four minute mile. The shoe features a newly designed midsole (the chunk of foam sandwiched in the middle of the shoe between the insoleNike Air Max 90 Womens Pink and the outer layer) dubbed ZoomX as well as a curved carbon-fiber plate. Both features are meant to spring and propel a runner forward and increase the shoe’s energy return. A higher energy return means a runner has to do slightly less work with each stride. The shoe’s consumer versions include the less expensive Zoom FlNike Air Vapormax Womensy and the decked out Zoom Vaporfly 4 percent.
