One-piece Flyknit upper for precision-engineered support, flex and ventilation
Snug and secure bootie design
TPU heel clip maximizes the foam and provides extra stability and support
Nike React foam (made from synthetic rubber) midsole provides a soft feel, impact protection and energy-return
Midsole extends beyond the upper and around the heel for stability and cushioning exactly where most needed
Deeper parts of the midsole and outsole indicate more cushioning; shallower parts of the midsole and outsole indicate more firmness
Segment of rubber under the forefoot and heel for added durability and traction

The Nike Epic React Flyknit is imported
With the goal of creating a running shoe that can do it all, Nike went into the lab. After 400 samples and 17,000 of miles logged in testing, the Men's Nike Epic React Flyknit Running Shoes is here and checks all the boxes: lightweight, durable, well-cushioned and responsive.

Most comfortable shoes ever!I've had my epic react for almost a year now so I thought I'd share my opinion. This is my most favorite sneakers ever! It's comfortable, soft, and looks great for workout and casual.
I do wish nike would put out better colorway tho.
I'm excited for the next generation of epic react.

Shoes Make Clicking Sound!I am torn on these shoes. They are comfortable, functional, and look good. The issue is they make a clicking sounds that comes from the front of the shoe. I think this is based on the shape of the shoes and the engineering of the sole. It literally clicks every step. It is loud enough that MANY people have mentioned it to me. Sounds like a small thing, but after 5-6 people mention the "clicking sound" when you walk, it gets on your nerves.

A good training shoeThere's a lot to like about the epic react. Having run on all the other Nike running shoes with react foam (and also wearing some shoes with react cushioning casually), I feel confident in saying that the exposed foam on the sole and strategic cutouts do appear to make a difference in the comfort level by letting the foam expand as you make contact with the ground. It's a very comfortable shoe for the amount of cushioning underneath. Not too soft, not too firm, and it holds up nicely even during longer runs. However, just as a heads up -- it's not the best jack of all trades since it's not a shoe for faster tempos. It's just not responsive enough; slow to moderate paces are its sweet spot. There area few issue, though. The shoe is subpar when it comes to running in wet conditions because the rubber on the toe becomes slippery. Having gone through three pairs already, I also am not the biggest fan of the upper. It starts out great, but after 100 miles or so the shoes always got to the point where the area around the shoe eyelets would start to irritate the top of my feet. I attribute this to the Flyknit breaking and and losing some of its structural rigidity and relying more on the laces for support. But this wasn't a huge issue for me since the shoes were always resigned to easy and recovery runs by that point. Durability was great and still felt comfortable even after 250 miles.

Nike's best runner in a whileVery comfortable trainer that gives the UBs from 3 stripes a run for their money at a better price. I've worn these for workouts, tailgating, and commuting and my feet are much better off for it. These are probably my favorite sneakers to wear at the moment. Cop if you can.

Sole Wears Extremely FastThese shoes are very comfortable and sleek looking. However with the pros, come the cons.
They definitely run small, I am a 11.5/12 in ever Nike/Converse shoe...but these I could not even get my foot into a size 12. Therefore I had to order 12.5 and tolerate the extra length that came with.
As for durability, the flyknit has been promising through everyday wear and a couple short mileage runs. But the sole is almost work down to no traction. It seems as if the toe and heal material used for the sole should be used throughout the entirety. But the foam that runs under the arch is TOO lightweight that it simply disintegrates with every step taken on an abrasive surface (concrete, track, etc.). Besides the durability issues, this shoe is comfortable and stylish for the everyday wear. Would not recommend for use of strictly a "running shoe".
