While many of Nike’s recent offerings for its performance running category have been designed for marathons, its next model is designed for shorter races.

Today, the brand unveiled the Nike ZoomX Streakfly that’s intended for runners who are training or racing on the roads at 5k to 10k distances. The silhouette’s standout design element is full-length ZoomX cushioning in the midsole that’s combined with a responsive Pebax plate at the midfoot. The upper is constructed of a lightweight and breathable engineered mesh.

Per Nike, the ZoomX Streakfly will debut in the “Prototype” colorway shown here, which is inspired by a sample version of the shoe that test athletes wore during the development process. The style dons a wear test number on the medial side along with text that shows the shoe’s intended racing distances.

“We learned there was a bit of a gap in our racing line between what we offered for the full and half marathon, and what we offered for competition on the track. To better serve athletes who race and train on the roads for the 10k and 5k, we set out to develop a shoe that would still offer them a comfortable, lightweight, propulsive ride with more connection to the ground,” said Elliott Heath, Nike Running’s footwear product manager.

The Nike ZoomX Streakfly will arrive at Nike.com and at Nike Running retailers in February and will retail for $160.
