Nike is set to debut the Air Zoom Alphafly Next% in July, which is a model that utilizes the same performance technologies as the prototype shoe that Eliud Kipchoge wore when he broke the two-hour marathon barrier in October 2019.
This offering of the shoe comes dressed in a “Watermelon” color blocking. The runner features an AtomKnit upper that provides a lighter and more breathable version of Nike Flyknit. It rides on a ZoomX midsole fitted with a full-length carbon fiber plate, good for a sense of propulsion with each step, while having Zoom Air Pods added to the forefoot for enhanced energy return.
Check out the official photos below, and look for the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% “Watermelon” to release on July 2nd at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $250 USD.
