Ekiden Season is in full swing as the best runners in all of Japan gear up for their upcoming competitions and events. As is the case every year, The Swoosh has dedicated its premier racing silhouettes toward the most-watched event in the country, spearheaded by the Nike ZoomX VaporFly NEXT%2.
Continuing its theme of outfitting the aforementioned collection in gaudy, titular shades, a grinch-like ensemble takes over the silhouette with a boisterous lime green upper, accented by a thin red strip at its mudguard while following suit along the upper eye stays and sock liner. Jet-black contrasts lay claim to the tongue and its presiding laces in tandem with its ankle collar’s engineered trim whereas the full-length Swoosh proffers a bevy of cracks and disparities. Branded with EKIDEN at its heel using an alarm-clock font, the ZoomX cushioned midsole enjoys a green to white gradient in conclusion.
While we sit tight on the pair’s release, enjoy official images of the ZoomX VaporFly NEXT%2 below in the meantime.
