Debuted on-foot by none other than LeBron James, we now have an official look at the Nike Epic React Flyknit 2.
Official images of the second generation Nike Epic React Flyknit have surfaced and as you can see in the featured image, Nike made the decision to not make any drastic changes to the sneaker.
This iteration carries over the same tooling — a full-length React midsole with a heel-stabilizing plate and minimal outsole rubber coverage — and for the most part, maintains the same overall silhouette as very few changes were made to this new Epic React model.
The heel counter has been scaled down in size but has been upgraded in terms of strength with its full TPU build. New Swoosh branding has been stitched on the upper as a means to stand out more than it previously did. As you’ll see below, a handful of colorways have leaked with some utilizing slight gradient midsole detailing.
The Nike Epic React Flyknit 2 is rumored to begin rolling out at the end of January 2019 with pricing TBD (it’s predecessor retailed for $150) though we have spotted select colorways available now at FinishLine.com.
