Nike: Towards a ban on Vaporfly high-speed basketball? - 20 Minutes

After the Speedo suits and the blades of Oscar Pistorius, it is now a model of sneakers that is pointed out. These are the “Vaporfly” from Nike. These shoes made of carbon fiber and foam plates are accused of being sneakers with springs. They would therefore give an "unfair" advantage to the runners who wear them.

On October 15, athletes seized the International Athletics Federation (IAAF). Since then, experts have been working on "the development and use of new technologies while preserving the fundamental characteristics of sport". Will “Vaporfly” soon be banned in official competitions? Response at the end of the month.
