The end of the year marks Ekiden Season, highlighted by thousands of high school, university and pro teams competing in intranational road-racing relays. The country’s most-watched annual sporting event starts in October and lasts through the new year. The event’s massive fandom serves as the colorway inspiration for the Ekiden Zoom Pack, featuring five members of the Zoom family.
- Air Zoom Pegasus 36
- Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2
- Zoom Fly 3
- ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%
- Zoom Rival Fly 2
The colorways are pulled from the scaled teals of Japanese bullet trains, highlighting a nation on the move during the relay exchanges of the race, and following its path toward this summer’s premier sporting event in 2020.
The Nike Ekiden Zoom Pack will release in Japan on the 3rd of December. Globally, the collection will release on the 2nd of January.
