From Nike: "The updates to the Alphafly NEXT% 2 were focused on refining the construction of the shoe to take all runners through the marathon distance with improved stability and transition.
The Alphafly NEXT% 2 midsole is made from a combination of full-length ZoomX foam (Nike’s lightest and most resilient foam), a full-length curved carbon plate, and dual Zoom Air pods—offering runners a propulsive, lightweight and supportive ride.
Additional foam was added under the Zoom Air pods in the forefoot, offering more energy return and helping ensure a smooth transition from heel to forefoot as runners go through their stride. A slightly wider heel helps improve stability and transition through changes of pace. The upper now features Atomknit 2.0, engineered for containment in the forefoot, breathability above the toes and comfortable padding under the laces."
