Eliud Kipchoge was only 25 seconds shy from breaking the two-hour marathon barrier. Designed for the world’s best runners and make fast even faster, Nike created the ZoomX VaporFly Elite shoe.
Custom crafted for each athlete, the shoes feature Nike ZoomX foam for responsive cushioning and a full-length carbon fiber plate to increase stiffness and provide a propulsion sensation. An aerodynamic heel reduces drag. A Flyknit upper hugs the foot without adding weight.

All you have to do is download the Nike Run Club app and run the global 5K on May 7th or May 14, and you will automatically be entered to win the shoes in sizes 8, 9, or 10. You can now download the app for iOS and Android.
