COMING SOON – This is not the final design but an early prototype, utilizing a full length carbon plate bridging the FLOW foam, and an EVA upper midsole. This prototype provided 54% energy return compared to 70% of the Nike Zoom Vaporfly but we didn’t have millions of dollars and 6 years to create. We did it on inline timelines with one designer (myself), one developer and the help of our innovation team. Not bad results at all and our distance athletes were extremely pleased.
Tatami stitched upper over 3mm poly tape for flex and containment with embroidery base. Synthetic suede skeletonize liner. Extremely light, breathable but supportive. FLOW midsole provides excellent rebound and traction negating need for outsole rubber to further shave weight. Full length carbon plate with split at toe.
