NOW NEW: THE NIKELAB ZOOM FLY RUNNING SNEAKER

BREAKING BARRIERS

Challenges at Nike are an everyday affair. One example is the Breaking 2 project or the sportswear giant’s attempt to break the two-hour marathon barrier. Less than 120 minutes to run 26.2 miles. For decades, the two-hour marathon has been a dream. And since 2014, a true a mission with Nike’s team of runners and scientists involved in reaching the goal from every possible angle – the fastest shoes, as well as training, nutrition and recovery. Nike has also singled out the perfect race track to test all its results - the tree-lined, meticulously measured racetrack in Monza, Italy.

 In this vein, the new NikeLab Zoom Fly SP running shoe fully represents this mission, inspired by the early prototypes of the Breaking 2 footwear. Characterized by a translucent woven stretch upper, carbon-infused nylon plate and springy foam, it offers a lightweight and responsive feel for the demands of training and racing. Its silhouette is inspired by the ground-breaking foam/plate midsole of the Zoom Vaporfly while the Monza racetrack is designed inside the tongue.

Nike knows Breaking2 will be a challenge. But it’s a plan.
