Flyknit upper is moderately supportive, yet flexible
Soft, responsive cushion
Supportive ride in a med-high arch shoe
Laces can dig through thin tongue
Midsole a bit “squishy” for fast efforts, esp. in the heel
The Nike Odyssey React Flyknit 2 is a mouthful to say and is equally packed with potential, offering light stability by way of a med-high arch and med-supportive upper, with a touch of flexibility in the forefoot and a snug, low-volume fit.
When tied with heel-lock lacing, this $120 shoe holds the foot secure with no pinching or excess movement
WHO IS IT FOR
Those with low-moderate support needs and med-high arches (or can handle this in a shoe) will enjoy taking Odyssey React out for cushioned long runs and recovery runs; also wear it for up-tempo efforts and long-distance races.
Nike Odyssey React 2 Flyknit Intro
Nike launched their React midsole in 2018 with Epic React Flyknit and Odyssey React (no Flyknit upper) as the stability version. Second time around, we have the latest upper added to the breakthrough midsole, in Odyssey React Flyknit 2.
This is not your typical stability shoe, yet it works for me if I use the very top holes to tie it using heel-lock lacing.
With last year’s Odyssey on one foot and Odyssey 2 on the other, at first it feels like the old model has a more secure mid-foot. But after lock-lace tying Odyssey 2 and running a few miles I no longer notice a difference.
The biggest problem with the new upper design is the thin tongue. A careful balance must be found between a secure hold and laces digging into the top of my foot.
