This is a solid Epic React Flyknit colorway for running on the beach.
When Nike first introduced React cushioning on basketball shoes — the supposed counter to adidas’ Boost – the initial results were mixed, to say the least. While some reported that React was everything Nike said it was, some of the staff at WearTesters had different opinions.
However, with the Epic React Flyknit, it appears that Nike found its footing. React cushioning is not EVA but an entirely new material, which is probably why it didn’t work that well on basketball models. Nevertheless, the Epic React Flyknit has been a success.
According to US11, the Nike Epic React Flyknit ‘Blue/White/Volt’ is set to drop on May 10 for $150. Keep a look out over at Eastbay.com in the event that this or other colorways drop in the near future.
After a successful implementation or React in the Epic React Flyknit, Nike released the Odyssey React, a less expensive alternative to the Epic React. You can check out our Odyssey React vs Epic React Flyknit piece for more information.
