  • Alphafly regression. Best shoe, worst version.

    SarahD922125957 - Apr 21, 2024

    I absolutely LOVE Alphaflys, but this version is unfortunately much worse than the earlier ones. I ended up having to return them which is nuts because they're my favorite shoe. They removed some of the fun bounce from before that was saving my knees for long runs, they also redesigned the heel in such a way that it gave me terrible blisters! I tried 2 different pairs in case one had a factory malfunction. Unfortunately, same thing. Please bring back the earlier Alphafly designs!

  • Not worth the hype/Quality issues

    One use and they look like they have been worn for 200 miles on the tread. They are noisy as well. I didn’t find them worth the hype or the money.

  • Excellent for Racing

    Comparatively, the Alphafly 3 is 1) lighter 2) more stable (especially around curves) 3) easier on the knees 4) adaptable (one can walk in them) 5) durable (the tread appears to be tougher) Conversely, they operate very differently than the Alphafly 1 and 2, which are front dominant shoes that make one bounce like Tigger the Tiger from step to step. The Alphafly 3 exchanges the great bounce for stability, especially around corners (there's a world of difference). For racing, this exchange is highly advantageous. For an easy run, its a disadvantage (the shoes do all the hard work for Alphafly 1 and 2; the runner must do more work with Alphafly 3).
