Nike’s Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% features the addition of two Nike Air Zoom pods in the forefoot, adding extra cushioning designed for impact protection and performance. The pods exposed design allows them the freedom to expand in all directions and maximize their responsiveness.
The Air Zoom pods are paired with a Nike Flyknit Atomknit Upper, designed specifically for racing to maximize breathability. The new Flyknit Atomknit ensures a contoured fit with more support and less stretch than conventional Flyknit.
Nike’s signature carbon fiber plate is tweaked from previous models to ensure stability and stiffness in the forefoot, working in tandem with the maximalist stack height to provide a feeling of propulsion with each step.
