Eliud Kipchoge almost set the two hour mark record during 2017 in Berlin. Now Nike has gone ahead and improved the VaporFly by using 3D printed textile which is called Nike Flyprint.
As of today, Flyprint is the first 3D-printed textile upper in performance footwear. And weighing in at 11g lighter than the now-legendary Vaporfly 4%, it offers more breathability while boasting almost zero water retention.
Presenting the Flyprint upper to Kipchoge for the first time, things went exactly as one would have expected. “I thought these guys were really crazy,” said Kipchoge. It wasn’t until the testing began that his mind changed. “I had to take the shoe, put it on my foot and run on it. You feel like flying when you’re running.”
Soon more information on the Nike VaporFly Elite Flyprint 3D will be available. For now check out more images by scrolling below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
