When Eliud Kipchoge broke the two-hour marathon record in Vienna in October 2019, I teared. I believe many running enthusiasts out there feel the same—a shared dream of striving beyond human limits came true.
During the record-breaking race, the running legend was wearing a prototype of the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%. Good news to all avid runners—starting from 2 June 2020, Nike is releasing these limited pairs of shoes. Yes, we can now own these record-breaking shoes!
NEXT% embodies the vision of all marathoners which is to push the boundaries of personal performance. The soles of the shoes are engineered with three critical components—a full-length carbon fibre plate and Nike Zoom Air Pods at the forefoot, and the Nike ZoomX Cushioning that extends through its sole.
The full-length Carbon fibre plate provides stability and smooth transition for every stride, while the Nike ZoomX Cushioning is a lightweight sole that provides optimal energy return for the wearer.
Lastly, the Nike Air Pods—which resembles mini-disks—serves to enhance the sensation of propulsion and provides additional responsive cushioning. All in all, it makes running feel like flying on clouds—comfortable and effortless.
These legendary kicks are available in limited quantity and exclusively on the Nike website from 2 June 2020 onwards. So wait no further, sprint to the site come June, and get your hands on these ‘sclusives.
