The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% could become the world's fastest marathon shoe. At the recent running of the 2017 Boston Marathon, the innovative model took first, second and third in the men's elite field, and first and third in the women's race. The moniker for the Zoom Vaporfly 4% refers to the notion that the shoe will make runners four percent more efficient, featuring a Nike ZoomX midsole for responsive cushioning, working in tandem with a full-length carbon plate that minimizes energy loss during toe bend without increasing demand for the calf. The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% hits select retailers and on June 8.
