Bringing fantastic energy return with a high level of cushioning, the Nike Zoom Fly is a responsive lightweight running shoe for the neutral runner seeking a unique experience. Social media has done its part for Bullos. The Daily Guardian, a tabloid newspaper in the Philippines, on Wednesday tweeted photos of the athlete at a shoe store in local mall SM City, trying on some brand new shoes. The newspaper’s analysis found that a runner wearing the Zoom Vaporfly 4% or ZoomX Vaporfly Next% ran 4 to 5 per cent faster than a runner wearing an average shoe, and 2 to 3 per cent faster than runners in the next-fastest popular shoe.
Early successes helped the company (which changed its name to Nike in 1978) establish itself among runners. In 1972, Knight and Bowerman released the Cortez, one of Nike’s most iconic shoes. Designed to be lighter and more water resistant than other sneakers, the Cortez gained a following for its full-length cushioned EVA midsole, a new feature that gave runners unprecedented comfort and shock absorption. Designed to meet the needs of world class marathoners, the Zoom Vaporfly 4% is a lightweight road racing flat that delivers Nike’s greatest energy return to date.
The latest iteration of the Zoom Fly comes with a tweaked upper for an improved fit and better moisture control. There’s a thicker, softer sockliner and a new arch-band lacing system that helps create a snug fit around the midfoot. The upper also utilizes a new transparent material from Nike, which doesn’t absorb water—that means these shoes won’t soak up rain and weigh you down. In the midsole, you’ll ride on a generous, full-length wedge of springy React foam and a carbon fiber plate for increased energy return.

The Air Jordan III is Cohen’s “favorite shoe of all time.” It was the first shoe to feature the Jumpman logo on the tongue. Anyone who saw Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya break the two-hour marathon barrier in October very likely saw something else, too: the thick-soled Nike running shoes on his feet, and, in a blaze of pink, on the feet of the pacers surrounding him. Since 1971, Nike and its famous Swoosh logo have become global powerhouses in the sportswear industry, supporting athletes from grass roots to elite as well as producing streetwear for the coolest of cats.
