Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next % 2 1st Run Video Review & all the Details: Big, Friendly, Fast. The Sub 2 shoe now for more of us!

Video by Sam Winebaum

Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next % 2 ($275)


In the video below, I take the Alphafly 2 out for a first run great run.  

The Alphafly 2 sees:

  • a wider platform. I measure 5mm wider at the widest points at the heel and forefoot with also raised sidewalls to stabilize the foot
  • 8mm drop vs 4mm drop for v1
  • a new outsole and new underfoot geometry, with more rear stability and more forward roll
  • AtomFit 2.0 upper which without overlays is more structured and very open.
The approx. 40mm heel / 32mm forefoot Alphafly 2 does gain 14 grams in my US 8.5 samples over v1 but still checks in at a very reasonable 7.76 oz / 221g in my size.

Comparisons in the video include, in detail Alphafly 1 including via an A/B run Alphafly 1 on one foot with Alphafly 2 on the other, as well short comparisons to other super marathon shoes such as Vaporfly, adios Pro 2, RC Elite 2, Puma FAST-R.
