This is what all the talk is about.
Nike introduces the Epic React Flyknit.
Swoosh teased an image yesterday that got everyone’s attention, especially if you love comfort. When they teased the new cushioning Nike said: “The inspiration for a running innovation that feels like this (without actually looking like this).”
Not even 24 hours later Nike unveils the new shoe. Meet the Epic React Flyknit, the first running shoe to feature Nike React cushioning technology. According to Nike, runners asked for one shoe that could do it all – so this is Nike’s answer to that request.
To add more context, this is what was said exactly: “Runners asked for one shoe that could do it all: offer more cushion from the impact of each stride, give them the energy return needed to stay fresh late in a run, feel light underfoot and also be able to withstand wear and tear of impact and elements run after run. Nike innovators, chemists, engineers and designers came together to deliver a solution in the form of a foam, called Nike React.”
As a runner, of course I’m curious about the Epic React Flyknit. Runners are always searching for the absolute best running shoe on the market, one that allows them to focus on the run and not the shoe. Well, it’s possible I’m speaking for myself, but I think plenty of runners will agree.
Is this Nike’s answer to Boost cushioning? Is the Epic React Flyknit going to takeover 2018? Only time will tell. Everyone who’s interested in this shoe can purchase a pair February 22 on Nike.com.
