During the event, Kipchoge met 40 Nike members and encouraged them to go beyond their limits in their undertakings. Kipchoge also signed on the pair of shoes with his famous tagline 'No human is limited'. He also added his name and the time he took to win the Berlin Marathon race.

"It was an absolute pleasure to meet and inspire 40 Nike members at the Nike Home of Running to have the courage to push beyond their limits. The human race just got faster and my pair of AF%2 is the gift I will leave behind to motivate the runners of Berlin in the future," Kipchoge stated.

Kipchoge has been a long-time Nike runner, even setting the previously mentioned sub-two-hour pace in a pair of prototype Next%s — the previous iteration to the Next% 2s. The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% 2 currently goes for $275.00.

This comes days after the 37-year-old shattered his own world record by 30 seconds when he won his fourth Berlin Marathon title in two hours, one minute, and nine seconds.

Kipchoge became the fifth person in history to break his own world record, joining legendary British runner Jim Peters, Australian athlete Derek Clayton, Moroccan-born Khalid Khannouchi of the United States of America, and Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie.

Nike is Kipchoge's official sponsor, and the company has played an important role in his career and success both on and off the field. Nike funded Kipchoge's first attempt to break the sub-2-hour marathon barrier in Monza, Italy, in 2017 - a feat he narrowly missed by 26 seconds.

Kipchoge has collaborations with leading global corporations such as INEOS, Nike, Maurten, NN Group, and Isuzu.

Kipchoge's victory on Sunday, September 25, is expected to net him $113,000 for breaking his own world records and winning the Berlin Marathon on Sunday. $22,600 for his victory, $33,900 for running under 2:02:30, and $56,500 for breaking the world record.
