Week 11 of NFL season proves crucial for several playoff contenders. Earlier this afternoon, the Baltimore Ravens bounced back to defeat the Carolina Panthers 13-3. Baltimore is now 7-3 on the year.
While there is a lot of credit for the defensive masterpiece, we have to give credit to the work done by Roquan Smith. The 2x NFL All-Pro linebacker finished the game with seven tackles, six of them solo.
Of course, we always focus on what the players wear on and off the pitch. Before Sunday’s game, Smith did the unthinkable – he wore Nike running shoes. Almost all professional athletes wear expensive lifestyle sneakers or coveted retro basketball shoes.
There is no wrong shoe choice as long as the person wearing them is comfortable. But it’s a nice change of pace to see someone wearing something different. Below is everything fans need to know about Smith’s running shoes.
Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% 2
Smith wore the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% 2 in the “Total Orange” colorway. The road running shoes were released in September 2022 for $300. Fans can buy the shoes in smaller sizes on Nike website or try their luck on sneaker resale sites.

Nike describes the shoes as “rockets” designed to save time on your personal bests. The shoes feature a thick, lightweight support system that combines comfort and speed.
Smith looked like he was playing with rockets on his feet as he chased Panthers players on Sunday. What do you think about wearing running shoes casually? hit us on Twitter and stay locked in on FanNationKicks.com for all of your shoe news.
