Technologies

Outsole

  • The flex grooves promote a flexible ride by allowing the sole to bend with the movement of the foot. Also, it gives secure traction on city surfaces.

Midsole

  • The ZoomX midsole is a special foam originally created by Nike for its carbon-fiber plate shoes. This Pebax-based compound is now used in most of its running collection. Pebax is reputed for its flexibility and bouncy nature, which gives an explosive ride.
  • The carbon-fiber plate flexes upon touching the ground before tightening at toe off for a smooth and responsive run.

Upper

  • The upper of the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% 2 uses a breathable mesh that provides a secure and comfortable foot lockdown while allowing airflow, especially when you increase the effort.
  • The internal heel foam counter keeps the foot comfortably in place at all times.
  • The slightly padded tongue craddles the top of the foot for a soft support.
  • The forefoot overlays optimize foot support and the upper’s sturdiness to keep the shoe longer.
  • The larger toe box aims to make this model suitable for feet of all shapes and sizes.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Is this carbon plate model true to size?

Yes, this shoe fits true to size, according to the reviews we have seen so far. Therefore, you can order your regular size for running shoes. However, if this your very first pair of Nike shoes, it’s recommended test them in a shop to be safe.

Is this shoe recommended if I have overpronation?

Yes, this shoe should be adapted to everyone. Indeed, it’s a neutral running shoe. Therefore, it aims to suit all runners independently from their pronation type. Having said that, the ZoomX foam is rather soft so it may feel unstable at times. If you’re not sure, we recommend that you test these shoes thoroughly before adding them to your shoe rotation.

I'm a heavyweight runner. Can I run in the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% 2?

Yes, with their high stack (40 mm under the heel), these shoes should normally be suitable even if you’re a heavyweight runner.

Is the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% 2 a good choice to run a marathon?

This model is not only suitable for the marathon: it’s specially designed for the marathon! Nike athletes (like Eliud Kipchoge) have won many races with the first version of this shoe and it has become a reference in the running world (professional and amateur).
