Editor’s Notes: Eliud Kipchoge is currently the fastest marathoner ever, and he'll attempt to break the world record of 2:02:57 at the Berlin Marathon on September 24.

Aiding in his quest will be a custom version of the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite with a carbon fiber plate tuned for his specific performance needs and "Beyond the Limits" on the lateral side, "EK" on the medial side and a sockliner top cloth printed with his wife, daughter and sons’ names.

The silhouette was originally created and specifically tuned for the three athletes who attempted to break the two-hour marathon barrier as part of Nike’s Breaking2 challenge.

With this consumer variation in bright crimson to be available in very limited quantities, Nike members in who live Berlin will also have an opportunity to purchase the model in the Berlin Store (Tauentzienstrasse 9, 10789) on Saturday, September 23.

Now here's the story of the banned spring-loaded shoe before the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite
