Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Fly Knit Video Review

Cheyne Inman gives us his first impressions of the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Flyknit ($250) in his video review below. The Vaporfly is the recent world record and Breaking 2 attempt marathon shoe and a great easy on the legs choice for any distance. You don't have to be a world record holder not even close to enjoy their benefits but it is not a "jogging" or casual shoe given its full stiff carbon plate and forward driving springy feel.

It weighs 6.7 oz/ 190 g US Men's 9 with a 39 mm heel/ 29 mm forefoot stack (including non removable sockliner) according to Running Warehouse here. It launched October 4th and no surprise sold out very fast.
If you can't find the Vaporfly you might try the Zoom Fly Flyknit. It substitutes React foam for Zoom X but still has a carbon plate. It weighs more but is a fine alternative. See our initial review here
