Nike`s newest running innovation, the Nike Epic React Flyknit is the answer to all prayers of running fanatics. The new model brings more cushioning and energy return to the street, enabling the runner stay fresh late in the run. Nike sat down with chemist, engineers as well as their designers to come up with a new running shoe, the result is a new foam, called Nike React. The white upper of the running model is from a one-piece Nike Flyknit material, bringing together support, breathability and flexibility.
Compared to former materials used, such as EVA-based foams, the new Nike React is significantly softer. The white midsole is one piece React foam, no glue or carrier was used here. Because the midsole is made from one piece, the black complex-patterned outsole is kept the same, with extra light-blue rubber on the forefoot and heel to maintain durability for the runner. Nike branding and blue highlights on the heel round off the shoe.
