Nike Epic React Flyknit AQ0067-400

Nike introduced the React technology in 2017 which landed on the Nike Hyperdunk. Now the brand is expanding on their offerings of the cushioning by adding it to their running line. The first model to release is the Nike Epic React Flyknit.

The upper on the Nike Epic React Flyknit is simple. The forefoot, toe and arch are very sculpted thanks to the one-piece Nike Flyknit bootie (which takes cues from the Nike Flyknit Racer) that was precision-engineered for support, flexibility and breathability in the spots where runners need it. It’s minimal and close to the foot but still supportive.

In comparison, the tooling is relatively pronounced and exaggerated. Because Nike React foam is significantly softer than EVA-based foams of the past, it smooths bumps in the road more effectively — but the midsole had to be taller in order to avoid “bottoming-out” and wider to give runners a supportive base. To solve for that, designers extended the midsole beyond the perimeter of its upper around the heel to provide both the cushioning runners want and the stability they need.

Because the upper sits on one piece of foam, the outsole is essentially the same as the midsole, but with a segment of rubber under the forefoot and heel for added traction and to help enhance the shoe’s durability.
