Nike Vaporfly is not an entirely new name. Nike introduced the ZoomX VaporFly product line to the public in 2018 in the Breaking2 project to break the human limit of running a marathon of 42,195 km.
Representing Nike to try ZoomX VaporFly is the marathon king of Eliud Kipchoge – who holds the world record with a time of 2 hours 1 minute 39 seconds set at the Berlin Marathon 2018. Alphafly is an improved version of the line Vaporfly successful shoes will be launched in the near future
With these achievements, “super running shoes” began to be sought and used at major athletics events such as the Berlin Marathon, Chicago Marathon, Boston Marathon, New York Marathon, Tokyo Marathon, etc.
Tighten the regulation on running shoes
Up to now, running shoes used in competition have just met the requirement of not using thrust spring technology. However, the rapid development of technology has given rise to shoes that can really help users run better without the need for springs. The pads are lined with synthetic materials such as carbon fiber that help very well for the runner. In particular, Nike’s 3 carbon lining helps support the toes, heels, etc.
Although the results were not officially recognized, the record-breaking achievement of Eliud Kipchoge made athletics a hot topic before the 2020 Olympics.
In this context, it is possible that Speedo has ever launched the LZR Racer instant swimsuit to help athletes speed on the green track. This type of tights was later banned in official tournaments.
Faced with the full support of technology, many athletes and other shoe companies require the World Athletics Council (WAC) to conduct a comprehensive investigation of Nike shoes to ensure fairness and integrity of the sport. One of the key technological elements in the high sole shoes is the carbon disc mentioned quite a lot. Even many people think that this shoe without control will be like adding doping to the athletes.
After 3 months, the WAC’s independent investigative teams concluded that the new technology could actually give the athlete an advantage, but it was not large enough to make a difference that was too large to affect equity. and be honest in competition. As a result, Nike Vaporfly 4% and Next% will not be banned from use in competitions but will have to be adjusted to conform to the new rules.
