The Nike Epic Phantom React Flyknit is the latest silhouette from Nike to go laceless.
With Nike unveiling the Adapt BB, the first basketball sneaker with automatic laces, the brand has decided to do away with laces altogether in the newest build in the Epic React Flyknit line.
Dubbed the Epic Phantom React Flyknit, the tooling on this build remains the same from the previous iterations of the Epic React: a React midsole for cushioning and solid rubber traction to fit a variety of surfaces. While Flyknit remains on the upper, the laces are gone, instead replaced with a pull tab.
How this affects how well your foot is locked down remains to be seen but if the adidas N3XT L3V3L is any indication, this setup might just work well.
No word yet on when any colorways pictured below of the Nike Epic Phantom React Flyknit is releasing. Be sure to keep it locked to WearTesters for any news and updates.
