An Official Look At The Nike Epic React Flyknit 2

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

  1. i don’t know, that puffy exaggerated swoosh looks kind of awkward tbh, and that yellowish tint on the back……..

    1. Looks like a dog peed on it. Also, do they still not have rubber on the ball of the foot area of the outsole? Really? Theres no reason to get this if the legend and the odyssey is available.

  2. Clean. I enjoyed the original but didn’t LOVE it. The cushion is really nice but not life changing (like boost was). Its kind of a pain to get on foot and its overpriced IMO. I cant really speak on durability since I rarely wear them. I usually just grab my Ultra Boosts since they’re way easier to put on. If you can find them for under $90 I’d say pick them up. The originals ran small so you might want to go up .5 size.

    1. boost in general bottoms out for larger people. React is better in that aspect and is the main reason ive stopped wearing them almost entirely since the react sole in general has come out.
