Nike Epic React Flyknit brings the popular Nike React foam from basketball shoes into the running shoes. The Nike React technology delivers a soft, smooth and responsive ride mile-after-mile and is ideal for distance workouts, recovery runs and progression runs. It’s the running shoe that runners have been asking for: lightweight + better cushioning + better energy return.
Here’s what you need to know about the new Nike Epic React Flyknit:
Soft and Bouncy. Nike React foam has a soft cushioning that snaps back after every stride, giving you lots of energy return. It’s even lighter compared to my previous Nike LunarEpic Low Flyknit 2 but performs just as good. According to Nike, the new react foam cushioning delivers 13 percent more energy return when compared to the popular Lunarlon foam.
Seamless Fit with a One-piece Construction. The shoe’s upper is clean and simple. The forefoot, toe and arch are very sculpted thanks to the one-piece Nike Flyknit bootie, which takes cues from the Nike Flyknit Racer. It has a good fit in the middle to keep my foot in place during the run. I also find the heel construction better and softer.
Extended Midsole Construction. Designers of the Nike Epic React Flyknit extended the midsole beyond the perimeter of its upper around the heel to provide both the cushioning runners want and the stability they need. This allows a more supportive base.
Computational Designed Midsole and Outsole. This is a neat engineering design that allows the shoe to provide cushioning and support in specific spots of the sole. Deeper parts indicate areas of more cushioning and shallower portions produce more firmness. The computational design also eliminated material wherever it’s not absolutely necessary in order to keep weight to a minimum.
