The Air Zoom Alphafly Next% is lined with breathable ATOMKNIT uppers for a seamless form-fitting build. Tiny pull tabs are placed at the tongue and heel, while a skinny Swoosh is etched along the lateral sidewalls. As a final touch, the shoe comes with a beige ZoomX midsole, engineered with Nike’s Air Zoom technology for optimal comfort and support.
In contrast, the ZoomX Vaporfly sports batted semi-translucent nylon uppers, offering a light and durable construction to maximize performance. Yellow “Nike” and “Vaporfly” branding is stamped at the top of the shoe’s rubberized tongue, complemented by a set of ripstop laces. Stretching from the heel to the toebox is a large Swoosh that covers the medial sidewalls. Other details like a small black Swoosh at the rear quarter and the articulated foam midsole round off the running shoe’s ergonomic design.
Nike’s Air Zoom Alphafly Next% and ZoomX Vaporfly “Bright Mango” are currently available on Nike’s website. Each is priced at $250 USD.
