Make the Nike Vaporfly NEXT% 2 your next pair of running shoes with this ridiculous Black Friday deal
Nike’s celebrated Vaporfly NEXT% 2 are currently the subject of a sensational Black Friday deal. Right now at Nike, you can pick up a pair of these storied trainers (men’s or women’s sizes) for £135, down from a lofty RRP of £224. That’s the best price we can find on the NEXT% 2 and a real steal for a line of shoes that – and we’re not overegging this – completely changed the running scene for good.
In his full-length Nike Vaporfly NEXT% 2 review, Nick Harris-Fry explains more. “The Nike Vaporfly was the running shoe that changed the game,” Nick writes, “with it helping to propel runners to PBs, Olympic medals and world records since its launch in 2016.” Most running shoe manufacturers followed suit in the years that followed, but Nike remained at the top of the pecking order with the launch of the Vaporfly NEXT% in 2020 – and then again in 2021, with the arrival of the Vaporfly NEXT% 2.
Nick gave the Vaporfly NEXT% 2 five stars and a coveted Best Buy award, praising the latest iteration of the Vaporfly NEXT% range as “one of the best options for runners seeking PBs.” Lightweight, comfortable and fast, the Vaporfly NEXT% 2 doesn’t stray too far from the formula, instead offering iterative upgrades to an already excellent shoe.
There are two main upgrades to note. The first is that the upper is now made of a soft, breathable mesh and is held aloft by a reinforced toe box that keeps the mesh from touching your toes. Fortunately for your feet, this mesh is more breathable than the material used in the previous Vaporfly NEXT%, which means that it dries quickly after a rain-impeded run.
The second upgrade is to the price tag, which dropped £30 without having an impact on the performance of the shoe. Even then, however, the Vaporfly NEXT% 2 remained one of the more expensive pairs of running shoes on the market – that is, until this exceptional Black Friday deal dragged the price down further still.
