Runner’s World has matched up every competitor at the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials to their footwear. Three men and three women were selected to travel to Tokyo this summer for the Olympic Games, and all three of the men were wearing Nikes. Two of them wore Alphafly Next% and one had Vaporfly Next%. The female winner was wearing her sponsored shoe by Hoka, which was released the day after the trials. One had Saucony’s Endorphin Pro, which is currently under a limited release, and the third was also wearing Next%. All of these shoes are fitted with carbon-fiber plates.
