Nike Comemorates Eliud Kipchoge’s Sub 2-Hour Marathon with Special Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%

Arguably the finest distance runner the world has ever seen, Eliud Kipchoge secured a permanent place in sports history when he ran the first ever sub-2 hour marathon on October 12, 2019 with an early prototype of Nike‘s Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% on his feet. Since that day, man and divisive, carbon fiber plate-equipped shoe have been forever intertwined, so Nike Running is paying homage to Kipchoge’s feat with a special edition of the NEXT%.   Uppers are made of feather-light Atomknit, an evolution of Flyknit tech that’s looser in the forefoot for breathability and tighter in the heel for support. A large, printed black Swoosh stretches from toebox to lateral midfoot, while heels read 1:59:40 (left shoe) and EK (right shoe), a nod to Kipchoge’s final time and his initials....
