One of the most talked about shoes in the history of running is soon to arrive at Pro:Direct, so we take a look into the new Nike Zoom NEXT% Alphafly and give you the lowdown.

You can't mention this shoe without first acknowledging it’s debut appearance in 2019 when Kenyan athlete Eliud Kipchoge broke the two hour barrier in a staged marathon at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge in Vienna. This was the most talked about human barrier in running since Roger Bannisters 4 minute mile in 1954, leaving athletes, coaches and media speculating about the power of the Nike Alphafly shoe. 

The Nike Zoom NEXT% Alphafly is designed in the lab and tested by elite athletes. Over the course of two years, Nike Sports Research Lab team travelled to the Kaptagat Training Camp in Kenya to test the Alphafly NEXT% with some of the world’s greatest elite distance runners, including Eliud Kipchoge to hear their first-hand experiences of running in them.

Two Nike Zoom Air Pods


Two streamlined Zoom Air pods in the forefoot deliver even more energy return than previous Nike Zoom models.



Nike developed a new Flyknit upper called AtomKnit. This fabric is stream and stretched, providing a lightweight, contouring fit with minimal water absorption and enhanced breathability.

Zoom X cushioning


The Alphafly NEXT% has more foam than the Vaporfly NEXT%, providing additional impact protection and cushion while keeping the lightweight and responsive properties.

Full length carbon plate


Working in tandem with the ZoomX foam and the Zoom Air pods is a full-length carbon fibre plate that delivers a snappy sensation with each stride.
