The Nike Epic React Flyknit 2 lives up to its reputation.
Chemists at Nike spent three years developing the recipe for React foam, running through 400 different combinations before releasing the final iteration.
It was worth the wait.
React foam is supremely soft and unbelievably bouncy. And even with a huge slab beneath your feet, the weight of the foam goes unnoticed. That’s why Nike used React again in the Epic React Flyknit 2.
Nike pumped a full-length bed of React foam into the shoe, the same cushion found in the original Nike Epic React Flyknit. Designers gave the new shoe a Flyknit upper that stretches to accommodate your forefoot but provides support in the midfoot, and they added durable rubber to provide extra grip on the heel and forefoot.
In our review of the Nike Epic React Flyknit 2, testers loved the React foam for its soft landings and explosive launches.
The new Epic React Flyknit 2 a worthy successor to the original.
