Advice for Road Runners: The Nike Women's Alphafly 2 in the Black/Topaz Gold-Sea Coral-White colourway fuses speed and protection to deliver the ultimate marathon day experience.
The Nike Alphafly 2 features features full-length ZoomX foam, forefoot Zoom Air Units and a full-length carbon fibre plate. The result? You feel like you're running on springs. No words can describe how cushioned and propulsive the Alphafly feels under your feet. It's built for speed, but keeps your feet and legs feeling fresh.
The Nike Women's Alphafly 2 is a neutral running shoe, but the heel and forefoot area are broadened. This increases the feeling of stability.
The upper of the Nike Alphafly 2 is constructed to keep you comfortable over the marathon distance. Part of Nike's Flyknit family, advanced Atomknit brings another level of performance to the super shoe world. The sock-like fitting upper features an integrated knit tongue with padding.
If you're wondering why the Alphafly 2 upper is so good, the fit stays consistent with every step. Flyknit yarns keep your feet in place. If it's hot, excess heat can easily escape through the breathable material.
The Nike Women's Alphafly 2 delivers maximum propulsion and comfort. This is Nike's ultimate long distance racing shoe. If you want to keep your legs as fresh as possible for 26.2 miles, we suggest giving these a try.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
