Nike made headlines when Eliud Kipchoge broke the two-hour marathon record in a pair of prototype sneakers. Today, Nike officially announces the production version of that model with the Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%. The shoe's three critical components consist of a full-length carbon fiber plate for stability and smoother transitions, ZoomX cushioning, and two new Zoom Air pods that enhance energy return and deliver additional cushioning. Alongside the Zoom Alphafly NEXT%, Nike will also launch a training-specific Tempo NEXT% for everyday use.
