Nike Running‘s Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% is set to follow up its inaugural black and green colorway with a sweet “Watermelon” makeup. Serving up sugary summertime style to match its potent performance, this second Alphafly NEXT% aims to tastefully continue the rollout of Nike‘s fastest running shoe yet.

Ultra-lightweight uppers are built from white Atomknit, with tightly-woven fibers around the heel and looser fibers on the forefoot for a mixture of support and breathability. Swooshes are then split between hot and cold gradients: the lavish lateral side offers an orange to pink fade that runs from the toebox to just under the collar, while the more muted medial retains a regular sized Swoosh on its quarter that moves from teal to blue. Black heel and tongue tabs with teal branding ensure easy entry.

Down below, the sharply-shaped ZoomX midsole is constructed of mint green foam, with a dash of white under the forefoot. A globe graphic, Nike Running text, and a special set of coordinates are stamped on the medial side in black. Signature tech is offered by a duo of forefoot Zoom Air units that continue the hot and cold ethos espoused by the upper’s Swooshes, using a “South Beach”-esque mix of reddish-pink on the lateral side and teal on the medial side. These powerful pucks work in tandem with a full-foot carbon fiber Flyplate, embedded in the midsole for explosive energy return. Black outsoles complete the look.

The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% “Watermelon” will release in men’s and women’s sizes at Nike Japan July 2. The MSRP for each pair is set at $250 USD.
