Lots of exposed foam reduces traction and durability
Nike’s Epic React Flyknit 2 shoe brings a lot to the table and it all comes together to give runners of all levels a quality daily trainer. It’s a pricey daily trainer, but most will find it’s worth the extra cost.
WHO IS IT FOR
Anyone not satisfied with entry-level trainers who needs a shoe that keeps up with fast workouts, long runs, and some daily gym activities should look into this shoe.
Nike Epic React Flyknit 2 Intro
Nike put a bunch into this shoe, from the React Foam (based on a thermoplastic elastomer/TPE foam which is overall better than standard EVA foam), to the improved flyknit upper.
The Epic React Flyknit line is still a light shoe at 8.4 ounces in size 10, even with a sizable 27mm hee and 18mm forefoot.
Similarly priced shoes with energy efficient foam and a woven or specialized upper would be the Adidas UltraBoost 19 (10mm drop, $180, 10.9 ounces).
The Saucony Freedom ISO (4mm drop, $100 or so current price, 9oz weight), and the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Pursuit (6mm drop, $120, 7oz).
