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, the king of running and sneaker innovation pulled together it’s best innovators, chemists, engineers and designers to answer that request and today deliver a solution in the form of a foam, called the Nike Epic React.
The Epic React is the most test running shoe with over 17,000 miles of testing by Nike’s best runners. The React is redefining what’s possible with foam and other cushioning platforms. The first running shoe to feature the latest in foam technology, the Nike React is designed to cushion the impact of each stride and offer the energy return needed to stay fresh and push harder late in a run.
In our opinion, this is Nike’s best running sneaker yet.
Nike CEO Mark Parker says “The cushioning platform, I believe, that has the greatest potential to benefit the widest range of people is NIKE React.”
