Vaporfly NEXT% 3 EK
This unique design celebrates Eliud's record-breaking 5,000m performance in 2003, when he was wearing the Nike Zoom Miler track spikes with the white base and red stripe through the Swoosh logo. A special “Kipchoge-ism” is on the left insole while the location and record time of his ground-breaking performance sit on the right insole.
Propelling You Forward
A full-length carbon fiber flyplate provides a stiff and propulsive feel.
Speed for Miles
Nike ZoomX, our most responsive foam, just got a little better. Running from heel to toe, it unlocks even more energy return than before, giving you a springy, bouncy feel.
See how the midsole bulges out by the heel? We designed it that way to help reduce weight on the inside of the foot to give you a more stable ride.
Feel the Breeze
Specifically selected Flyknit yarns and engineered zones in the forefoot bring a new level of performance to the Vaporfly. Ample breathability around the toes combined with soft, yet supportive yarns deliver our most customized upper for the Vaporfly. The result is a softer, cooler design that conforms to your foot.
What's New About the Vaporfly 3?
An updated thin outsole rubber uses less material without sacrificing durability, which helps reduce outsole weight and thickness. This allows for extra millimeters of ZoomX foam underfoot and a smoother transition through your stride.
Light padding on the tongue helps reduce lace pressure at the top of your foot.
A new Waffle outsole pattern with perforations saves weight and delivers multi-surface traction in various weather conditions.
Offset heel seam helps reduce friction in the heel area.
