Nike’s New Eliud Kipchoge Collection Celebrates The GOAT’s First World Gold With Vaporfly And Alphafly Special Editions

Eliud Kipchoge set the world record for the marathon in Berlin just last year, but his first gold medal at a global event came all the way back in 2003, when he won the 5,000m at the IAAF World Championships in Paris.

To commemorate that event Nike has launched the EK Umoja Collection, which contains a selection of shorts and apparel with colors and graphics that reference that 5,000m final. This includes special editions of two of the best carbon plate running shoes—the Nike Vaporfly 3 and Nike Alphafly 2.

Nike Vaporfly and Alphafly shoes you can also get the Zoom Fly 5, Pegasus 40 and Victory 2 spikes in the white-and-red of the spikes Kipchoge used in 2003. 

Umoja means unity in Swahili, one of Kenya’s official languages, and the collection also features his mantra, No Human Is Limited, which is written on each shoe and piece of apparel. The clothes available are the Nike Windrunner jacket, Rise 365 T-shirt, Stride 7in short and a Dri-FIT T-shirt that features the quote, “Let us imagine that we are in a garden. Let us focus on the flowers and not the weeds.”

The EK Umoja collection is available now on the Nike website and app.
