Nike Running has unveiled the VaporFly 3, which will release in March in the ‘Prototype’ colorway.
After the success of the VaporFly 2, the new Nike Vaporfly 3 is an all-around racing shoe that can help runners cover any distance. Some of the highlights include a smoother transition, improved stability and more energy return in the Vaporfly 3’s lightweight design. The new design details include a reductive ZoomX midsole geometry and Flyknit yarn upper.
“The Prototype colorway of the Vaporfly 3 is again a nod to our development process, where athlete and every day runner feedback critically informs and guides our innovation journey from start to finish,” says Elliott Heath, Nike Running Senior Footwear Product Manager.
Several design features in the model’s first colorway pay tribute to the Nike Running team’s development journey. Graphic text on the midsole nods to the number of Flyknit upper iterations the team tested (57) and a dedicated weartester’s identification number (20126-23). The iconic drop Swoosh against the all-white silhouette pays homage to the first-ever Vaporfly worn at a Breaking 2 test event in 2017.
