Nike introduced the Vaporfly range back in 2016. The timings for long-distance runners reduced after the launch. The record set by Paula Radcliffe 16 years previously was beaten by Brigid Kosgei last year. The new record of 2:14:04 reduced Radcliffe’s record by over a minute.

Eliud Kipchoge wore the prototype of Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% and won the marathon with a timing of 1:59:40 in Vienna’s edition last October. A version of the same will be launched in summer 2020. The features of the shoe make it look like it has been created for a sci-fi cinema. The forefoot cushioning and thick foam sole has helped long distance runners reduce their time. The hardcore running purists have objected the launch of the shoe stating it will disturb the integrity of the sport. Nike has marketed the shoe calling it a game-changer. Runners have stated one needs to keep up with the technology.

World Athletics reviewing the range of major brands for running shoes approved the Vaporfly range. The committee did ban shoes with more than one plate and soles over 40mm thickness. These features generally boost the spring of the runners.
