Japan loves running, so much so that the most-watched sporting event in the country is non-stop coverage of the dozens of intranational road-racing relays that begin in October with the Ekiden Season. To honor the occasion, Nike Running has prepped yet another collection featuring notable sneakers from its Zoom family.

Spearheaded by the game-changing AlphaFly NEXT and VaporFly NEXT% 2 propositions, the latest four-pair capsule indulges in a mix of eye-catching yellow and orange. Each running shoes’ tried-and-proven lightweight, breathable and durable upper, and industry-leading sole units make statements appropriate of the feat that is running the three-day, 23-stage run from Tokyo to Kyoto (315 miles or 507 kilometers). The Pegasus 38 and Zoom Fly 3 styles included in the upcoming Ekiden Zoom Pack forgo the ZoomX foam found on the two aforementioned models, favoring a Nike React solution instead. All four pairs, however, are fine choices for runners of all stages, as they’ve assisted countless athletes across the world set personal records and break race records.

Enjoy an official look at all four Nike Zoom Ekiden releases for 2022 here below, and if past rollouts are being followed, the shoes are to release in Japan soon, and globally in January via Nike.com.

For confirmed release dates, check out the “Cool Grey” 11, which returns for the whole family on December 11th.
