Very few running shoes manage to balance the feeling of protection and propulsion like the Nike Women's Alphafly 2 Road Racing Shoes do. The combination of ZoomX foam and a full-length carbon fibre Flyplate feels incredibly cushioned and bouncy.
Everyone reaches the point in a marathon when the pace feels tougher to hold. As the Alphafly 2 midsole rolls your feet forward, it helps save precious energy - meaning you can stay on course for your PB.
Zoom Air Units in the forefoot help make the Alphafly 2 Nike's highest energy returning road racing shoes. The Zoom Air Units compress and spring back, unleashing more propulsion.
The Alphafly 2 Road Racing Shoes feature Nike's innovative AtomKnit material. Even though this material is incredibly light and breathable, it offers lots of support. With an almost seam free upper, the chances of rubbing are minimised.
A gusseted tongue ensures the fit remains consistent throughout a run. It's this sort of detail that makes the Alphafly 2 perfect for marathons. The heel collar also includes lofted pods to improve comfort and security.
You'll feel like you're taking-off when you start running in the Nike Women's Alphafly 2 Road Racing Shoes. That's because the level of propulsion and energy return is unrivaled. With its ultra protective midsole, your muscles should feel fresher for longer.
It's for these reasons that we recommend using the Nike Alphafly 2 for marathon racing. We would also suggest using them for some of your key preparation runs.
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.
