Get your Nike account ready, the Air Zoom Alphafly Next% “Watermelon” is set to drop on July 2.

The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% dropped earlier this month, arriving in the OG colors – black and neon – that Eliud Kipchoge rocked when he broke the 2-hour marathon barrier. The shoes sold out on Nike SNKRS site instantly. Very soon, the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% will come in a fresh, summer-ready “Watermelon” colorway.

The upper on the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% “Watermelon” features two Swooshes – a large, fruity pink Swoosh at the forefoot and a traditional teal-to-blue gradient Swoosh on the medial side. They bring a vibrant pop of color to the pure white Atomknit upper of the sneaker.

Another hit of red is seen on the exposed Zoom Air Unit at the forefoot, which is surrounded by mint green ZoomX foam. Overall, the sneaker stays true to prior “Watermelon” sneakers, sticking to a refreshing mix of green, white and pink.

Rumors point towards a July 2 release, and that these will retail at US$250 (approx. S$353.08). No confirmation has been given as to a Singapore release date, so stay tuned for more updates.
