NIKE ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% Performance Review

NIKE ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%

Many guys have the running shoes Nike Vaporfly 4%. Although most of people like Elite, but not every person can afford such high price. I also like Vaporfly 4%. Series and I also expected how NIKE will continue this series. So when Vaporfly NEXT% is released, I’m very excited. As it’s a pair of Elite shoes. So I know why NIKE name it as NEXT%, as 5% can’t annotate this pair of shoes, it’s not only 5%.

The first releasing colorway of Vaporfly NEXT% is fluorescent green which is very striking.

The vamp is not made of Flyknit that we are interested in, but use the new developed Vaporweave material, which is lighter and more ventilated, and moreover it can discharge the water, so the water or sweat won’t be absorbed in the vamp and make the inner side dry.

The shoe tongue is standard design. It can accommodate different height of instep.

The shoe heel doesn’t have visible TPU stabilizing plate, but after pressing, we can feel a thin stabilizing plate. As it’s a pair of competition shoes. It’s aimed for the runners who want to win on the competition. The inner side of upper is filled with stabilizing foam. This design accord with ergonomics. It improves the stability and it’s very comfortable. With the slant shoe lacing design on the midsole, the shoes can fit the foot very well.

The insole is made of ZOOM X and full-length carbon plate. The size is a little small than normal size. The stability has been improved. The ZoomX of NEXT% is upgraded comparing with 4%, It’s adjusted to be suitable for most of runners.

The outsole of ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% is also almost the same as Elite.

The actual performance of ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% is excellent. It can say that The ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% is a symbol of this time, like the great products of past times. It’s very comfortable when running. I love it. It’s worthy to purchase.
