Nike Alphafly Next% 3

By Nike


What to know

  • Nike’s competitive advantage is our system of speed — a proprietary combination of Air Zoom units, ZoomX foam and a carbon fiber Flyplate that powers the Alphafly.
  • The Nike Alphafly 3 is the lightest and most tested Alphafly ever, validated by elite marathoners and powered by Nike Air Zoom to help all athletes break barriers in the marathon no matter their pace.
  • During development, the Alphafly 3 helped Nike athlete Kelvin Kiptum claim a new marathon world record with a time of 2:00:35.
  • The engine of the Alphafly remains the same — a triple threat of Air Zoom units, a carbon Flyplate and ZoomX foam — but the recipe for the overall system has been tuned to optimize and improve the overall benefit to the athlete.
  • Key updates include one continuous bottom for smoother heel-to-toe transition; a wider full-length carbon fiber Flyplate for a propulsive, stable ride; a new Fast Shot outsole for optimal traction and grip; and a new Atomknit 3.0 upper for improved containment, breathability and midfoot support.
