Nike continues to excel in the running space as the Swoosh keeps pushing forward through innovative breakthroughs.

Its latest running shoe continues the brand’s Vaporfly series as the all-new Nike Vaporfly 3 is the most recent race day shoe within the Nike Running catalog.

The new Nike Vaporfly 3 is an all-around racing shoe that can help runners cover any distance with key updates including a smoother transition, improved stability, and more energy return in the Vaporfly 3’s lightweight design. Additionally, the shoe’s design includes a reductive ZoomX midsole geometry and Flyknit yarn upper.

The Nike Vaporfly 3 will launch with the “Prototype” colorway, which has become a staple colorway for Nike’s running line.

The ‘Prototype’ colorway of the Vaporfly 3 is again a nod to our development process, where athlete and every day runner feedback critically informs and guides our innovation journey from start to finish.
