NJ Podiatrist Comments on Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit Shoes 


 


Nike's claims that the Vaporfly 4% Flyknit shoescan boost speed by up to four percent. Podiatrist  Velimir Petkov, DPM works with patients — runners among them — who’ve specifically asked him to assess the Vaporflys. He first came across the shoes when a "running enthusiast in his mid-30s" brought them in, seeking an honest opinion about them. "I am happy to see the VaporWeave engineered woven mesh, which helps with additional perspiration and less water retention, especially in long-distance runs," Dr. Petkov says. "You want a pair of shoes using fabrics that allow water vapor to escape."

"My main area of concern looking at the Nike Vaporflys is stability," Petkov advises. "I would not recommend these shoes for uneven surfaces or marathons with many sharp turns. That could lead to ankle twists and sprains."
