Nike Epic React Review

The Nike Epic React are a multi distance, multi use running shoe, just as good for a long slow Sunday run as they are for a 5x1k interval set and everything in-between. It’s hard to do a review of the Epic React without mentioning a running shoe brand that has also created a shoe that gives you a Boost. However, my experience with Boosts has been hit and miss – the first version I tested was the Ultra Boost which threw my ankle all over the place resulting in the reoccurrence of an old Achille’s injury. Conversely, the Adizero Boost Boston is my go-to marathon shoe.

[taq_review] The Nike Epic React is undeniably a response to the Boost's popularity amongst faster runners, however it is also a very different shoe. Rather than being a pure-play racing flat, the neutral structure combined with the responsive cushioning of the Epic React allows it to be used across a much wider spectrum of activities. Look & Feel The shoes looks great out of the box. It's a trainer that I would happily wear for daily use as well as whilst pounding the pavements. The colourway for the trainers I was sent by Nike aren't exactly what I would choose, but never fear! This week Nike has released a new range of colour options for the Epic React, so you're sure to find a colour to your liking! The sole looks slightly oversized, however this is the current style amongst many running trainers and, once the shoe is on its not something you notice. Tech & Performance The Nike Epic React Flyknit is packed full of features. The Flyknit upper wraps around your foot for an extremely comfortable fit. As with most woven uppers, I found I needed to go up half a size from my usual trainer size, and that was indeed the case with these. The midsole has been tested extensively for durability and the energy return is noticeable. I wore these trainers for a parkrun and an intensive 12 mile marathon intervals session and the bounce is gives as you run is great. It almost got more responsive the faster I ran... The sole is 10% bouncier than the previous LunarEpic sole and 5% lighter!

In terms of value for money, this is difficult with modern day trainers as it's hard to pick up a pair of high performance shoes for less than £100. If you factor in that these shoe can be worn as day to day trainers, as well as both training and race day shoes, then they would seem good value for money to me Available from Nike.com for £129.95
