Nike Epic React Flyknit- Positives

  • The Nike Epic React Flyknit is all about crazy comfort that lasts as long as you can run. It packs a responsive and lightweight foam cushioning that is soft as well as durable.

  • The shoe allows natural movement even during fast-paced activities and is an excellent shoe for speedy runs.

Nike Epic React Flyknit- Negatives:

  •  Some users claimed that the shoe had a narrow fit. So, if you have a broad foot, the fit might be uncomfortable for you.
  • Although the shoe is lightweight, the build of the shoe makes it look bulky.
