Men's Neutral Running Shoes (Click to see Women's Version)
The men's Nike Epic React Flyknit takes cushioning to the next level.
Nike packed the shoe with its ridiculously responsive React foam. The stack of cushioning is known for how it snaps back into shape after each step, returning more energy to your run than the similarly soft Nike Lunarlon foam. Plus, React is durable: Wear testers logged a combined total of more than 17,000 miles to get it just right.
To shave ounces, Nike trimmed the outsole, opting for high-traction rubber sections only on the toe and heel. The design boosts grip during the most important parts of you stride—landing and takeoff—while keeping the shoe's weight down to 8.44 ounces.
Like the Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit, Nike sewed a lightweight Flyknit upper for the Epic React. The knit material conforms like a sock to the shape of your foot for a snug feel, and the bootie construction seamlessly integrates the traditional tongue into the upper so you get a pressure-free fit.
Nike finished the Epic React with a synthetic suede heel lining to prevent rubbing and blisters, so you can run the last mile as comfortably as the first.
