World Marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge made headlines not only for his remarkable athletic achievements but also for his unique fashion sense.

A recent outfit worn by the long-distance runner has stirred mixed reactions from his fans and followers, prompting discussions on social media platforms.

Nike's On Air Event 2024 in Paris, France, grabbed attention in Kenya as athletes showcased a fashion-forward look.


The event aimed to unveil kits for various sports, including track and field, basketball, soccer, and skateboarding, for Team Kenya and other countries at the upcoming Summer Games.

Renowned athletes like Eliud Kipchoge, Faith Kipyegon, and Sha'Carri Richardson graced the event, donning Nike casual wear on stage.

Kipchoge and Faith shared photos and videos from the event on April 11, showcasing their dazzling outfits. In one video, Kipchoge was featured wearing a striking black outfit, reminiscent of the style often associated with rapper Kanye West.


Kipyegon was also dressed in all-black attire, including shorts, a jacket, gloves, socks, and shades to complement the look.

While some praised Kipchoge for his bold fashion sense, others expressed surprise, as it diverged from his usual attire associated with his athletic pursuits.

A segment of Kipchoge's fanbase felt that the outfit was not in line with his established style as a world-class athlete, advising him to stick to his athletic endeavors.


Despite differing opinions on these fashion choices, many applauded Kipchoge for his versatility.

In 2023, Nike, a longstanding partner of Kipchoge, 2023 announced a collaboration with the marathon champion.

Nike introduced the EK Umoja collection, featuring footwear and apparel inspired by Kipchoge's legendary career.


The partnership marked a significant milestone for Kipchoge, as athletes involved in such collaborations receive a share of sales, making it a lucrative venture for the champion.

The collection includes shoes and apparel adorned with inscriptions commemorating Kipchoge's race-winning achievements and his iconic mantra, 'No human is limited'.
