Flight Club was the original consignment store for rare and collectible sneakers. People like Cohen, who were buying with the intent to resell, would bring their shoes to the store and wait for them to sell. They mostly sold to everyone who couldn’t — or just didn’t want to — wait online or enter a raffle to be able to buy them from Nike itself. Strava is very popular among runners. At last year’s Berlin Marathon, for example, more than 10,000 runners uploaded race information to Strava, and this year, more than 14,000 did. Crucially for our purposes, about a thousand of those runners ran both races, and a subset of them reported racing in different shoes.
Nike has grown exponentially since the 1970s, but it has maintained its dominance in running even while branching into other sports. Part of this running industry success is attributable to advanced upper designs that especially benefit runners. Many Nikes utilize a Flyknit upper construction, where a lightweight yarn is woven tightly in some areas of the shoe and loosely in others. The loose weave allows the shoe to flex with your foot for greater comfort, and the tight weave provides support in key areas where you need it. Flywire, another upper technology, uses a series of cables that connect a shoe’s laces and loop under the arch to provide a fit that securely grips your midfoot. More recently, Nike debuted its Vaporweave” material on the Vaporfly Next% and Zoom Fly 3. It’s a blend of TPU and nylon that’s lighter than Flyknit and also doesn’t absorb moisture, so rain and sweat won’t weigh it down.
When we aggregate the change in race times for runners the first time they switch to a new pair of shoes, runners who switched to Vaporflys or Next% shoes improved their times more than runners who switched to any other kind of popular shoe. A closer look at recent numbers in the final months of 2019 show that about 41 per cent of people who ran marathons in under three hours were reported to have been wearing these shoes. Nike is constantly laying down the latest, and always push the boundaries between street style and comfort. Created by coaches and athletes, the brand continues to create ground-breaking designs to keep them at the peak of the footwear game. Nike is repped by celebs and sports stars, and have iconic collabs with professional athletes, including Michael Jordan from the Chicago Bulls, Lebron James from the Los Angeles Lakers and Stephen Curry from the Golden State Warriors.

Running styles are Nike’s bread and butter. From the original Air Max 1 to forward-thinking lines like the Nike Air Presto, Nike Flyknit, Nike Roshe, and everything in between, Nike has so many running shoe styles for both men and women to choose from. The result of this collaboration is a slip-on sneaker that’s durable, comfortable, and easy to clean. It features a laceless upper with protective coating to make wiping away spills a breeze. The back of the shoe is outfitted with an elastic strap to keep the heel in place, making it easy to slide on and off. It also includes a rubber outsole for traction and a flexible mid-sole for even more comfort and support.
