Nike has debuted the latest evolution of its performance-orientated Zoom Vaporfly silhouette. Dubbed the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%, the sneaker features a range of upgrades recommended by athletes and experts including long-distance runners Shalane Flanagan, Mo Farah and Eliud Kipchoge.

These new features include a Vaporweave-constructed upper that is more breathable and absorbs less water than Flyknit, a re-tooled midsole with added Nike ZoomX foam and redesigned track pattern, that was suggested by Kipchoge after running in wet conditions. Elsewhere, the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% also has offset laces for added comfort, a thin foam pod for Achilles support and new contoured treads for supported movement.

As well as the new features, Nike has kept a number of design elements from previous Zoom Vaporfly releases. Stand-out in this is the full-length curved carbon fiber plate which is embedded within the foam and increases propulsion.

The ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% will be available from April 25 in London, before releasing through the Nike Run Club app for US NikePlus members on April 28.
