Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% 2

Your Race-Day Time Machine

Imagine a shoe so fast it could save you time on both sides of the finish line. The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% 2 is designed to help you clock your fastest long-distance race times, and with incredible impact protection, bounce right back. This update to our pinnacle marathon shoe reflects the feedback we heard from many passionate runners, including Olympian Eliud Kipchoge.

Enliven Your Stride

Two forefoot Zoom Air pods have been optimized to absorb even more impact from the ground thanks to a supporting layer of our lightest and most responsive foam – Nike ZoomX. Combined with a resilient thin-web outsole, this improvement ensures better heel-to-toe transitions and durable traction where you need it. A slightly wider heel ensures stability when rounding corners.

“Everyone wants to recover fast and to improve their time, so I think any serious person with a goal should try the Alphafly 2.”

– Eliud Kipchoge Olympian, world record-holder, marathon.

Get What You Give

The NEXT% system features a bed of ZoomX foam that works in tandem with a full-length carbon fibre plate to provide the most energy return of all our racing shoes as well as deliver a snappy, propulsive sensation to launch you toward the finish line.


Expand Your Comfort Zone

The upper of the Alphafly 2 is made from lightweight and breathable AtomKnit 2.0, offering improved containment and durability. Contoured heel pods knit inside the collar provide a plush and secure fit, while more padding in the tongue keeps the top of your foot comfortable as you log big miles.
