Up Next: The Breaking2 Collection- Nikelab Zoom Fly SP

Sharing is caring!

Earlier this month, more precisely on May 6, three Nike Athletes, Eliud Kipchoge, Zersenay Tadese and Lelisa Desisa attempted to shatter the 2 hour marathon. They came very close to it with Eliud Kipchoge finishing with a time of  2:00:25, that is 2:32 faster than the current world record. If you were watching the exciting event that day, the athletes were wearing a precursor of the breaking2 collection- the  Nikelab Zoom fly Sp.

The shoes feature a breathable and light translucent, stretch-woven upper. Nike also endowed the sneakers with different stages and elements that contributed to its final phase-for example, the original designer sketches on the sockliner. A subtle swoosh logo can be spotted on the panels and toe box; they are equipped with a Lunarlon  midsole for lightweight but responsive cushioning, an embedded, full-length, carbon-infused nylon plate for rigidity. Other features are as follows:

  • high abrasion rubber in the heel for durability
  • 10mm offset to minimize Achilles strain
  • 33-mm stack height for impact protection

The Nikelab Zoom fly Sp will release officially on June 10, stay tuned for further updates.

Running-focused graphics, including a Swoosh pinwheel icon, Speed track icon and Finish checker icon are on the translucent tongue. Wavy embroidery traces the edges of the upper above a white/bright crimson midsole.
The inner left side of the tongue has text referring to the prototype design’s specifications. The inner right side of the tongue has space for the wearer to fill in the Trial No., Location and Time of their own fastest running attempts.
The digital clock graphic on the heel references the brave attempt to break the two-hour marathon barrier and also nods to the original Nike Zoom Mayfly.
