Just a quick bump of this thread for a PSA. I few weeks ago I bought another pair of Next % from a third party retailer on E-Bay. The shoes were in box, never used, but they felt wrong. I compared them to my original pair and noticed the foam felt hard and dead. I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed any difference between pairs, but just something to be aware of and give any new ones a quick test. I wonder if it may have something to do with how the shoes were stored that might effect the foam.

They could be fake?

Did you notice a different box or anything? Did it come with that white Nike shoe bag like the first time -

Fake Nikes are a plague on Ebay.

That's right. You MUST buy them from Nike or reputable shops. Fake ones look just like original but you can still spot them. Top is original and bottom is fake.

It's possible. I mean they are identical in every way but the ground contact feel. They respond more like the Vaporfly 3 I train in.

I train in the Vaporfly 3s too and have the Next%. I know what you mean - that's how Zoom React foam feels.

The ZoomX foam is probably harder to counterfeit than a Zoom React type foam. Nike is very proud of their ZoomX innovation.

I think you guys are right, these could very well be knock offs. They were also discounted which might be the best clue.

Do she numbers on the box match the numbers in the shoe

Everything matches up and it’s hard to tell they are fake. Can’t believe Chinese people can make counterfeit like these. It’s just too perfect.

Wow look at the outline on the bottom swoosh versus no outline on the top.

They made their own fake mold it looks like.

Speaking of reputable online sellers, does anyone know where Next % inventory (size 11 or 11.5) is available? I've been poking around online and can't seem to find anything other than odd sizes. Even the pink colorway seems to be gone now too. Will Nike continue production of Next % or have they moved on to the Alpha?

Dicks has them in pink in your size. Also stockx has had them for only slightly inflated prices recently. Whatever you do, don’t buy them on eBay. People are surprised the Chinese can knock these shoes off, really? Where do you think they’re made in the first place!

With the supply shutdown it might be a while before more shoes arrive. The reason China has been able to control the virus is that factories are largely shut down in certain areas. Will this effect Nike production, who knows?

Also looks like Gazelle sports has the Next in the Ekiden colorway. They are a reputable retailer.

I'm a conservative guy so these pink, neon green and orange colors bother me.
I don't know why Nike doesn't make in plain blue, white, grey and such.

On top of the factory shutdowns in China. You had a lot of people probably waiting for the Alphafly to come out when those were sold out before you could even log in, Nike probably blew through their stock of the Next%

They make a plain white pair called ‘Sail Black’

Is there a release date for more of the NEXT%? Can't seem to find them any where.
