Nike Epic React vs adidas Ultra Boost Review…

Which running shoe is better?

Let’s be honest, that’s the most asked question when talking about Nike’s Epic React Flyknit… is it better than or more comfortable than the Ultra Boost?

There’s no need for me to front, that’s the first thing I wondered when Nike started marketing the Epic React, especially when I saw this photo. Well, it’s been a few months since the launch of Epic React and tons of reviews are being published across the Internet.

I was excited to wear test the Epic React and write an honest review, but unfortunately my wear test experience wasn’t pleasant. Long story short, I had huge blisters on my heels from running in the Epic React.

After my wear test, I figured I just needed to go up .5 in size, but that wasn’t the answer. I asked around to see if anyone else had similar issues and only one person said yes, but it’s because they ran without socks.

The young lady said she no longer had the issue while running with socks. Some shoes are not for everyone and I quickly found that out with the Epic React.

However, former Nike designer Tiffany Beers created a video comparison of both runners. In this video Tiffany compares each shoe with 12 attributes for her ranking system.

The 12 are: price, availability, aesthetics, upper comfort, underfoot comfort, traction, lacing system, stability, fit, quality, durability and weight. The purpose of her review is to determine which shoe is better.

I was very excited to watch this review considering her experience in the footwear industry, but I don’t fully agree with how she decided to rank each shoe. Maybe it’s just me (probably not).

Watch the video below and let’s discuss more in the comments. Did you enjoy the review and ranking system? Which model do you think is better? Share your thoughts.
