While the flyknit material and the react foam are both very comfortable and surprisingly responsive compared to competitor options, I have found several durability problems. The react foam has started to make a squeaking sound on my right shoe even though I have read they have fixed that since my purchase date of this shoe. The flyknit material has also strangely started to yellow and harden around the toe box area of the shoe, making it far less comfortable and also aesthetically appealing as before. I have only owned these shoes for about 5 months now and have mostly used it indoors for running on a treadmill so it saddens me that, while my expectations were met and surpassed in the beginning, they had these issues only 5 months into its ownership.
Overall, the looks are great. The flyknit upper feels great, and the midsoles are just so comfortable. The only con is that I'd recommend going up half a size. The tongue is non-detachable and is a little tight around the ankles.
Easily the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. I have 3 pairs of them. The trade off of such a soft, comfortable, lightweight shoe is durability. The soft soles render them disposable. If your a daily runner be prepared to buy a new pair of these with every season.
I’ve worn Ultra Boost for a few years so I was hesitant to try anything else, as those shoes were amazingly comfortable. React is simply on another level. The responsiveness that is achieved with the React is 2x that of any other running shoe I’ve experienced. Every time I go to put on this pair of shoes, I’m excited, and to me, that’s worth every penny.
Super comfortable to run in. These are currently my go to training shoes and they have been great. My only complaint is that the sole is showing excessive wear in the areas without rubber, but that's the sacrifice for keeping the shoes light weight.
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.
These shoes are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned in my life, safe to say. However, we all know that running is not only about comfort, we're not out there busting ass because its all fun and games and its comfortable. These shoes are very responsive as well, and they are very light, making for a powerful run where I can drive through and break personal records. Again. Again. And again. All in all, they are definitely a good purchase, I'd say they are worth it.
