An Inside Look at the Breaking2 Kit

To make fast even faster, Nike decided to shake things up and rethink the traditional marathon kit. Designers focused on five key areas that Zersenay Tadese, Lelisa Desisa and Eliud Kipchoge said could be better: weight, fit, comfort, fatigue and grip. Designers combined the athlete’s body scan data with their personal preferences to develop a custom kit perfectly tailored to each runner. Here’s what each athlete is bringing to the start line and what they will wear in Monza:

Zersenay Tadese

Lelisa Desisa

Eliud Kipchoge

Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite
Custom crafted for each athlete, the shoes feature Nike ZoomX foam for responsive cushioning and a full-length carbon fiber plate to increase stiffness and provide a propulsion sensation. An aerodynamic heel reduces drag. A Flyknit upper hugs the foot without adding weight.
