Despite the Tokyo Olympics being held a year late, the summer sports event is garnering as much excitement as ever as fans globally continue to root for their favorite athletes from the comfort of their homes. And as one of the biggest sportswear brands, Nike hasn’t hesitated to drop some Olympics-approved pieces to share with event watchers around the world. Among these releases is a women’s-exclusive Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% 2—one of the brand’s latest running shoes and a World Athletics-approved silhouette.
A sequel to the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%, this arrangement consists of a redesigned lightweight upper in white that reveals “Psychic Blue” Swooshes and decals underneath. From the toe to midfoot, a yellow gradient strip that extends onto the ZoomX-cushioned sole acts as a bold accent to the design. Messy dashed lines and Nike Running text deliver a deconstructed look reminiscent of technical drawings. The fun continues with the tongue covered in an assortment of Swooshes and Nike’s retro cursive logo. A full-length carbon fiber plate and flexible grooves on the outsole are the finishing touches that provide World Athletics-approved responsiveness and traction.
Take a closer look at the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% 2 below, which is available now at Nike overseas and will hit Nike US in the coming months at a price of $250.
In other Swoosh-related news, the Nike Air Max 96 II will be returning in a muted purple colorway.
