When Nike announced React foam in 2017, it promised the impossible: foam that’s lightweight, durable and capable of providing ample cushioning and bouncy energy return. Nike’s materials scientists tested more than 400 chemical combinations until they found the perfect mix, which was first delivered in basketball shoes. But React found its stride after Nike injected it into the Epic React Flyknit, a running shoe that gained a considerable following throughout 2018.
It’s no surprise that the Epic React Flyknit 2 released last year became a success. But for the follow-up, Nike tweaked that part of the shoe’s construction: the upper is stretchier, more supportive and comfier with a lower heel cuff. Right now, the shoe is as much as $65 off on Nike’s website, with several other colorways deeply discounted as well. (The black and red version shown above, for example, is $60 off.)
