Looking for high performance running shoes that are so stylish you’ll want to wear them 24/7? You’re in luck! The Epic React 2 is Nike’s newest edition to the fan favorite Epic React family and it doesn’t disappoint. The Epic React Flyknit 2 is a lightweight, breathable and seriously comfy running shoe with a sleek design. When something’s great just the way it is, it’s often best to freshen it up a bit while keeping the integrity of the overall appeal. And that’s exactly what Nike did.

The new Epic React Flyknit 2’s vibrant colorways are a subtle throwback to the 90’s, but I’m digging that the design isn’t too over-the-top. They still function as an everyday shoe while adding  a pop of color to your runs. Not into vibrant 90’s vibes? There are also toned down neutral color options for those that are looking for a little less punch.

Some of the best features of the Nike Epic React Flyknit 2 are what they didn’t change. You’re still going to get maxed out cushion with that awesome Nike React foam for a smoother, softer and springier ride in one durable package. The Flyknit bootie constructed upper isn’t there just to make you look good – it also offers lightweight breathability and wraps your foot for a supportive yet minimal feel. Plus, the molded heel gives a secure feel at any pace.
