Brett Holts, vice president of Nike Running Footwear, explains the new Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% shoe worn by London Marathon winner Eliud Kipchoge in this movie produced by Dezeen for the sports brand.
The Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% follows up the brand’s previous marathon-running trainer, the Zoom Vaporfly 4%, which was released in 2017.
The NEXT% was worn by all athletes who appeared on the winners’ podium at the London Marathon on Sunday, including by Nike-sponsored Kenyan runner Kipchoge, who set a new record for the course and ran the second-fastest marathon in history.
According to Holts, the trainer has been designed for marathon runners of all abilities.
“This shoe has been created for all marathoners of all levels to help them achieve their records and break barriers,” he said in the video interview, which was shot by Dezeen at a launch at Niketown London, the brand’s flagship store in the UK.
