I really feel the performance I know and love from the 4%, and I’m a fan of the more stable base. My concerns going into my next Marathon is that I find my sweat staying trapped in my shoes, and am getting soggy socks and visible wetness in the shoe through the transparent vaporweave. I never had this issue with flyknit. Reading the description I see it says water resistant, and I worry and wonder, is that holding sweat in as well?
Great so far!

So far, best running shoes I've owned. Had the 4% and these seem to be much more durable so far, which was the biggest issue I had with the 4%, especially on the bottom of the shoe. Makes it hard to run in any other shoes. I went back to my Pegasus Turbo's for a run the other day, and my time was much worse than with these. Expensive, but worth it.
Best shoes ever

Until a couple of years back I had pretty much always run in Pegasus as a go to all around shoe, I got converted and went for some Zoom Flys which I loved and earlier this year bought a pair of Vapor 4% which i loved but on twisty courses made me feel like Bambi on ice. The next% takes it all to another level, much more “strapped in” , more “snappier” and definitely much more comfortable. The outsole looks as if it will last longer than the 4% and the stability is in a different class. A lot of money to pay for a running shoe but so very comfortable .
