Alphafly 2 "Eliud Kipchoge" Men's Shoe

By Nike

Eliud Kipchoge believes there are no limits to his potential—or yours. In a design inspired by his mindset, this version of the Alphafly 2 has personal touches from Eliud to remind you to keep reaching for more. These rocket ships help shave precious time off your personal records without surrendering the foundation you need to go the full distance. A thick, lightweight support system joins the two worlds of comfort and speed in running matrimony. Enjoy the greatest energy return of all our racing shoes while you chase your personal bests.

Breaking Barriers

This unique design celebrates Eliud's record-breaking 5,000m performance in 2003, when he was wearing the Nike Zoom Miler track spikes with the white base and red stripe through the Swoosh logo. A special “Kipchoge-ism” is on the left insole while the location and record time of his ground-breaking performance sit on the right insole.

Bounce to the Beat

Zoom Air units and full-length ZoomX foam bring you our highest energy return cushioning system yet, adding more bounce to every step. A thin rubber outsole enhances traction and allows for more ZoomX foam to be placed under the Zoom Air cushioning. The additional foam not only adds more bounce, but also helps improve transition from heel to forefoot.

Stay Fresh

Full-length ZoomX foam offers an ultra-lightweight and responsive ride. It’s built for speed but also provides cushioning to help you stay fresh even in the last miles of a marathon. It offers comfort where you need it.

Keep Rolling

Full-length carbon fiber plate delivers a sort of roll-forward feel that makes you want to take on the next step. It gives you a propulsive sensation and helps you smoothly transition through your stride. Both the forefoot and heel offer slightly wider bases for a stable platform, so you can tackle turns on the course with confidence.

More Benefits

  • Part of the Flyknit family—Atomknit material on the upper has a contoured fit while being lightweight and super-breathable.
  • Specifically designed heel pods use Flyknit yarns for secure, extended comfort and lightweight heel support.
  • Notched laces offer a secure, but soft lace-up. An integrated knit tongue with lofted padding makes for a secure, repeatable fit that helps reduce lace pressure.
  • We designed the sole using data from hundreds of runners. It has different angles of traction placed where you need it, providing grip from footstrike to toe-off.
