Alphafly NExt% 2

Long live the King

Standing on the shoulders of the first shoe to break the two-hour barrier, the 2nd iteration of Nike’s premier max-cushion marathon racing shoe is back and better than ever. It’s accolades speak for themselves, but if Eluid Kipchoge’s recent DEMOLITION of his own marathon world record wasn’t enough to convince, here are some quick facts about the new Alphafly NEXT % 2

A Full Length ZOOMX Midsole is still the secret sauce providing that legendary combination of cushion and rebound but this time there’s more. In order to accomodate a wider swathe of PR hungry runners, Nike has widened the midsole at both the heel and forefoot. This not only adds stability but (hopefully) enables a greater number of unique foot shapes to comfortably this shoe

The Full-length Carbon Fiber Plate returns to stabilize all that bouncy ZoomX foam and propel you forward towards a new personal best

the booty-fit ATOMknit upper still secures  your foot in a secure, breathable, and ultralightweight race-ready package

Dual Airpods in the Forefoot are here to stay and work with the foam and plate to cushion, propel, and provide that signature “pop-off-the-toe” sensation that Nike is known and loved for.
