• Nike Is Giving Alphafly Next% to All Olympic Trials Marathoners
February 28, 2020
All 695 Trials runners can pick up a pair this week, without obligation to wear them on race day.
- A deleted tweet supported rumors that Nike is offering Alphafly Next% shoes free to any Trials runner; Nike has since confirmed all entrants can receive a pair.
- A version of the controversial prototype was worn by Eliud Kipchoge when he broke two hours in the marathon last fall.
- The shoe meets World Athletics rules currently and is set to go on sale in limited quantities on February 29.
