It’s actually 11% softer than the LunarEpic and 13% bouncier according to the good folks at Nike. Although it took hundreds of combinations, Nike finally stumbled upon the perfect balance between cushioning and protection.
The upper of the Nike Epic React is just as advanced thanks to the lightweight Flyknit which stretches from heel to toe. On this pair, it features in a deep shade of blue with complimentary hits of pink and navy throughout.
Runners were given the pair to test but instead of receiving a new pair, Nike gave them silhouettes which had already been used for over 500 miles. Upon returning from their run, they were asked how much mileage they thought the shoe had on it. Many of the athletes thought the shoe was brand-new with the average saying around 15 miles.
