In a world full of companies trying to revolutionize and modernize everything – Nike continues to do it well. Their new Zoom Vaporfly Elite shoes are specially engineered and designed for long range runners. And although most of my running these days involves chasing after tiny people (children, duh), I am actually pretty relived to find about these new kicks. They weigh in at a mere 7 ounces but still have a thick foam sole that supports and helps return energy with each stride. Additionally, Nike says this technology helps make the runner about 4% faster which in turn helps more people break that 2 hour mark. While pricing and release date aren’t available yet, I would expect to drop a couple hundred on these.
