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.
