With their Breaking2 project, Nike aimed at having the coveted sub-two-hour marathon time broken, a feat which has still yet to be accomplished. For this, the company designed a new sneaker for runner Eliud Kipchoge, again, in hopes of surpassing the aforementioned mark. Coming in at 2 hours and 25 seconds, Kipchoge was no doubt close, but didn't quite reach the desired goal.

Since then, the Breaking2 sneaker designed for Eliud has gone on to serve as inspiration for Nike's ZoomX Vaporfly Elite.

Now, the exact shoe that was made for Kipchoge has founds its way to eBay, with an asking price of $10,000 USD. The Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite was ultimately awarded to three different runners who were a part of the Breaking2 project.

To make a bid on the one-of-a-kind kicks, follow over to eBay.
