Last week Nike launched the new Nike Epic React Flyknit. It features Nike's special React cushioning which makes this a super lightweight, yet still durable running shoe.
The React technology refers to the cushioning in the sole, a feature that was first introduced in the React Hyperdunk 2017. With the React Hyperdunk this feature was hidden within the sole. With the Nike Epic React Flyknit the React sole is visible on the midsoles.
Nike spent three years creating React foam which is 5% lighter, 11% softer and offers 10% better energy return compared to it’s predecessor.
For the Nike Epic React Flyknit in the White/Racer Blue/Pink Blast/White colorway try coordinating the white form-fitting flyknit upper with the White Reflective Flat Laces. The 45” laces are shown here.
On the College Navy/Racer Blue/Pink Blast colorway match the pink heelpiece and add some contrasting color to the navy flyknit uppers with the Neon Pink Roshe Style Laces. Here the 36” laces were used.
These are Nike’s longest-lasting running shoe yet, giving runners an extra 20 percent more miles compared to other shoes, so you’ll want to make sure you have the right laces.
