This is the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, the shoe that crossed the finish line first in Boston yesterday — twice. Nike athletes Geoffrey Kirui, Galen Rupp and Suguru Osako took first, second and third in the men’s elite field, while Edna Kiplagat earned first and Jordan Hasay nabbed third in the women’s race all wearing versions of this shoe.
The Zoom Vaporfly 4% pairs a Nike ZoomX midsole (for responsive cushioning) with a full-length carbon plate (intended to minimize energy loss during toe bend without increasing demand for the calf). Together, these features can make runners up to four percent more efficient than Nike’s previous fastest marathon shoe.
The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% will be available June 8 on nike.com and at select retailers.

A sleeper classic from the '90s, the Nike Air Shake NDestrukt graced the feet of one of basketball's most colorful champions. Its bold swoosh and rugged outsole are hallmarks, along with the idiosyncratic offset lacing.
It will be available on SNKRS, Nike+ and nike.com on April 28.

A cult favorite from Australia to France, the Nike Air Max Plus (popularly known as the TN, in reference to its tuned air) matched bold color with a brash stance on arrival in 1998. Since then, the shoe has carried both glorious color fades and muted tones. In both, the strength of the silhouette is undeniable. In latest incarnation, for NikeLab, the Air Max Plus sheds its typical plastic toe bumper in favor of a heavy tumble, soft full-grain leather (balanced by a buffed leather heel overlay), but loses none of its tough appeal.
The NikeLab Air Max Plus is available starting April 25 on nike.com/nikelab and at select retailers.
