We're so excited that two of Nike's most coveted shoes of all time are about to launch at Fleet Feet Raleigh!
Worn in last year's historic attempt to break the 2-hour marathon, the Vaporfly 4% is Nike's fastest, most efficient shoe yet, and it's helped the likes of Shalane Flanagan, Galen Rupp, and Edna Kiplagat score major marathon victories.
This hard-to-come-by shoe will be available in very limited quantities at the Wade Avenue store on April 11.
The big story with this shoe is the cushioning - 11% softer than Nike's previous softest shoes, the new React foam also manages to be bouncier with significantly more energy return, as well as incredibly lightweight. Plus, the new foam is extremely durable: Nike asked wear testers to run in Epic Reacts that had more than 500 miles on them; upon return, every tester estimated the shoes had fewer than 100 miles, and some said they felt brand new.
The Nike Epic React will be available in limited numbers on Thursday, April 12th.
