Nike shoes that have revolutionized marathon times unlikely to be banned

January 15, 2020

The World Athletics working group investigating the Nike shoes which have revolutionized marathon times is still deliberating over what limits to place on the carbon plate and foam technology and is unlikely to implement a wholesale ban according to The Guardian. As things stand, the group’s emphasis appears more on putting limits to the future incarnations of the technology rather than restricting the Vaporfly shoes completely.
