Nike Release New Colourways For The Epic React Flyknit 2

One of Nike's most popular trainers gets an update

Nike’s React technology was first seen used on the React Hyperdunk 2017 basketball shoes, but as they were so successful, Nike decided to try out the same technology on their running line and in doing so, created a real winner.

The tech was a huge hit with the running collection, making for one of the lightest pair of trainers on the market. As we know, with success comes colourways. So, to celebrate the popularity of the Epic React Flyknit 2, Nike have worked on two new colour schemes that pay homage to the nostalgia filled tech world of the 90s.

The Epic React trainer tech is a huge hit for runners and gym sharks alike as the Nike react foam is 13% softer and bouncier making for a much more comfortable footfall when pounding the pavement or the treadmill. The Epic React is also 5% lighter than the LunarEpic Low Flyknit 2 which all adds to the additional comfort.

The Epic React 2 is also one of the most durable trainers from Nike, or anyone else for that matter. Nike tested the life out their new tech by having a group of runners take them out for a spin after they had already been used for over 500 miles, before asking them how much they thought they had been used beforehand. With most stating they felt the trainers were either brand new, or had ran less than 100 miles, it is fair to say that it is one durable trainer indeed.

For the new release the 2 has the same tech as it’s first rendition but has been given a brand new lick of paint. The swoosh logo has received a revamp and the midsole has received a new gradient fade.

The two new styles to recently drop are the ‘pixel’; a light grey design with retro fade, multi colouring using 90’s inspired tech colours beginning with pink on the toe box with electric blue and neon yellow across the midsole. The ‘8-bit’ colourway features the same midsole colouring but is mainly black to give a much darker and console inspired look compared to the cleaner ‘pixel’ trainers.
