BUILT FASTER TO BREAK BARRIERS.
Gear up for your next personal best with the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% Flyknit Ekiden. It gives you the greatest energy return of all our racing shoes with a propulsive feel through to the finishing line. The design is light, breathable, and backed by data to help keep you comfortable.
This special-edition colorway draws inspiration from the rising and setting sun during the Ekiden and the awe-inspiring views that accompany this iconic New Year's relay race.
Fast and Efficient
Your foot sits on Nike ZoomX foam, which is incredibly responsive and lightweight, and 2 slim Zoom Air units (that you can see). Combined with a full-length carbon-fiber plate, it feels smooth and responsive while delivering the most energy return of all our racing shoes.
Lightweight and Consistent
Part of the Flyknit family—Atomknit material on the upper has a contoured fit while being lightweight and super-breathable, so your feet don't get weighed down by sweat.
Traction Backed by Data
The sole was designed using data from hundreds of runners. It has different angles of traction placed where you need it, providing grip from toe-off through every phase of your stride.
More cushioning helps make each step feel soft and plush, keeping you comfortable through the later miles of your race.
An integrated tongue provides a consistent fit with a comfortable lace-up.
