(CNN) He may no longer be sponsored by Nike, but American long-distance runner Mason Ferridge is still faltering.This is because, in the process of striving to become the United States Olympic team, Ferlic believes that Nike’s super running shoe series has brought him an advantage, and these shoes have completely changed the long-distance running sport in recent years.Felik, 27, said he was eager to celebrate the physical achievements of athletes and “stop this ridiculous debate about what shoes people wear”, but he realized that the moment was long gone.”You will see in Olympic trials and competitions that athletes sponsored by other brands wear Nike shoes with painted swooshes,” Felik told CNN Sport.Even before the arrival of Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%, Nike’s running shoes attracted envy. When Eliud Kipchoge became the first person ever to run a marathon in two hours, the prototypes of these shoes added luster to his feet, even though he was helped by a large group of pacesetters and a car.
Today, Nike’s most advanced racing shoes are no longer the treasures of elite runners. Park runners, casual joggers and hipsters wear them.Kipchoge crossed the finish line in Vienna, Austria, for the first ever marathon in less than two hours.Kipchoge crossed the finish line in Vienna, Austria, for the first ever marathon in less than two hours.Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% includes a carbon fiber board, which is said to provide runners with a sense of propulsion, as well as a thick foam sole and two streamlined pods on the forefoot. According to Nike, Alphafly has more foam than another popular Nike racing shoe, the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%, and provides additional impact protection and cushioning.
Ferlic said: “This is a good product that can be self-promoted.” Ferlic said that in addition to Nike’s ZoomX Dragonfly spikes for track and field competitions, he will continue to wear Vaporflys. He previously had a Nike professional contract, which was signed in 2016.Both men’s and women’s official marathon records are run in the ZoomX Vaporfly Next% version. These runs prove a lot of evidence of the effectiveness of Nike’s technology.Kenyans Kipchoge and Brigid Kosgei took a sizable piece from the previous marathon world record. Kipchoge lowered the threshold by 78 seconds in 2018 and 2019, while Kosgei lowered the threshold by 81 seconds.Ferlic, based in Michigan, believes that the initial launch of Vaporflys is similar to doping, because people wearing shoes have a clear advantage over chasers.
Mason Ferlic won the men’s 5000m championship in the USATF gold medal competition held in Walnut, California on May 9.
On May 9, Mason Ferlic won the men’s 5000m championship at the USATF Golden Games in Walnut, California.He is not the only athlete who says that.In January 2020, British Olympic marathon runner Mara Yamauchi told the BBC: “If they say that doping is not allowed, because it can improve performance, but we feel that these shoes can also improve performance. Satisfied, then it’s a bit inconsistent.”
Following Nike’s success, other leading footwear brands including Adidas, Arthurs, Brooks and New Balance have also launched their own super shoes, which include carbon fiber boards and ultra-light foam.
But now, most athletes seem to be running, and analysts say that this field is leveling off again.”Driven by our unremitting efforts to bring innovation to athletes, running continues to bring sustainable development to Nike. We are passionate about track and field sports and have made unremitting efforts. We look forward to the future of this sport. Continued development and success in the middle of the year,” Nike said in a statement to CNN.Eliud Kipchoge will wear controversial Nike shoes for the first time in the official race of the London Marathon Eliud Kipchoge will wear Nike’s controversial shoes for the first time in the official race of the London Marathon
The original prototype of this pair of shoes was only sent to some athletes, such as Kipchoge, at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Despite being abandoned by Nike, Ferlic believes that it is an advantage not to associate with the shoe brand.
He believes that Adidas athletes must decide between being loyal to Adidas or eager to realize their childhood dreams.Ferlic said, “I’m almost happy that I don’t have to make this decision.” “I want to wear the best shoes of the day.”Zach Ornelas, another long-distance runner and friend of Ferlic, believes that Nike is reducing sponsorship, except for the best athletes.”Nike knows they have the best shoes. They don’t need to donate money to people,” Onelas told CNN Sport.”People will wear shoes anyway. And those who are abandoned: they are exercising and wearing Nike shoes to compete.
“It’s sad. Fortunately, I don’t need to win games to eat. I have a job. But if running is my full-time job, I will be at Vaporflys.”
