Nike Epic React Flyknit (Black/Dark Grey/Hyper Crimson/White) $131.99 @ Nike AU

350

First time Posting shoe deals, just helping fellow Ozbaraginer who missed out from the Single Day sale.

I received a lot of feedback telling me to post some shoe deals, so here it is, not the cheapest but a good deal in my opinion.

Fit: TTS or Go a half size if wide feet.

Got both of UB and Epic React, highly recommend both shoes, very different styles but both offer great comfort.

Various Sizes Available.

Specs:

Nike React technology delivers a soft, smooth and responsive ride.
Flyknit and synthetic upper construction provides a snug fit.
No-sew overlays on the eyestays work with the laces to secure the midfoot.
TPU heel clip secures the rear foot and enhances stability.
Colour Shown: Black/Dark Grey/Hyper Crimson/White
Style: AV7004-002
Country/Region of Origin: Vietnam

Hope it helps, and have a great day :)

  • I like the all black colourway but of course it is $20 more

  • How do these compare to Ultraboosts? The UB's are comfortable enough but I find that they don't provide enough ankle support (i.e. they don't hold onto my ankles enough).

    • I personally would give more credits to Epic React, in terms of ankle support both shoes are socklike fit, so not that great, if you want ankle support, you have to look at Asics or Mizuno or other running shoes. I suggest you to have a look at Alphaboucne Instinct, they are pretty good for your needs.

      • Thanks. Will likely give the Flyknit a go. Will be a lifestyle shoe. Still running in my UB 2.0 and sometimes UB 3.0 and has been going okay so far.

      • If you're in need of "ankle support" no shoe will give you the fix you need and may potentially increase injury. I would only recommend stable ride/stability shoes for those who are suffering an injury and should be moved out of them soon. Support should only be used to supplement recover and conditioning. Strengthen your legs and start wearing Frees.

        • Should clarify what I mean by support. I don't feel the Ultraboosts wrap around my ankle enough. So the shoes feel like they're coming off (but they aren't). Probably shouldn't refer to it as 'support', my bad.

    • I love Ultraboosts as an everyday walking about shoe.

      But the React is better for running because it provides more support.

    • I have ultraboost but find they don't provide much support at the gym if i make a sideways movement (my foot will slide a little), and i end up with sore legs.

      I got the Nike epic react over Christmas and find the sock material to be more supportive (maybe it's a bit tighter?), and doesn't allow my foot to slide as much, so I prefer them for exercise.

      UB is my preferred lifestyle shoe though, looks slightly better with casual clothes.

    • I'm a bit of a sneaker lover, having run these and my ultras last year, I'd go the boosts.

    • you need ultraboost ST (stability) version

  • Don't forget the 5.6% Cashback from Cashrewards from NIKE as well.

  • I bought a pair of these after reading they were comparable to the UB cushioning. After two runs, they have been relegated to "lifestyle" shoe status. They are way too soft (I'm very lightweight) and imo very little support for a running shoe.

    • The grip on these isn't great at all. The Pegasus 35 and Odyssey react are more comparable to the Ultraboosts.

      • hey guys which one would you recommend for running. pegasus 35 of the epic reacts.

        i have my UB which are awesome and i agree with the ankle comment. for walking and everyday UB rule!

        • I bought the pegasus 35 recently and they were very comfortable for running right out of the box

        • Depends on your run. Epic/UB are meant to be longer distance runs. Pegasus or Vomeros are more responsive and both good choices. I'd try both on and go from there.

        • I bought the peg 35 recently, felt they are more for quicker, lighter runners. Skinny sole heel and less cushioning. Tended to have less support for my outside inside foot roll, and had some light/minor foot arch pain on the few uses I've run. Coming from an old lunar glide 8. These epics look like they have the cushioning I'd need.

      • Grip on the Odyssey is the same as Epic React.
        Pegasus is a far different shoe to UB.

        • There's actually more grip on the Odysseys V Epic's. I have both and wear the Odysseys on wet days for this reason. They have extra rubber on the soles which provides a little more grip.

          • @thesoxman: I got stuck in torrential Sydney rain in my Odysseys and I was actually surprised as how well they kept up with walking around the city while being drenched. Not tried my UB in the rain, but the Nike's were great. I actually find the Odysseys to feel more comfortable than my UB.

  • These are good as lifestyle shoes. Arguably as comfortable as Ultraboosts

  • Epic React 2's come out this year don't forget.

  • Just grabbed a pair for my wife. Womens sizes on special too.
    It also helped I had a 20 percent off voucher too.

  • ultra boost or nothing #teamboost

  • React softer and more cushion than ultraboost #teamsoftie

  • What's the difference between these and the nike free RN? I was waiting for the free rn to go on sale. The soles of these look a bit chunkier?

    • Free run the sole is more flexible in all directions, they are advertised as bare foot shoe, closer to the ground and forefoot landing.
      React has more cushioning, comparable to Adidas UB, but firmer
      Both very comfortable

  • I just dunno if I can buy Nike anymore… I bought two pairs of commuters recently and both of them were put together so poorly… Glue everywhere.

  • Nike.com is the worst site to deal with regarding their return policy.
    I just got off the chat with them for a pair of Pegasus 35's ive been trying to exchange for a wider size since black frriday.
    I have given up.

    On that note. anyone who wants a pair of Blue Pegasus 25's in 3.5, never worn apart from putting my foot in for 5 mins
    $100 pay shipping. done.

    • I had no issues with returning my Pegasus 35's to them. I had worn them, and they still accepted them back as part of their return policy. Pretty sure most companies don't usually allow you to exchange the items you got online, especially sale items.

      • i just logged my pegasus now for returns. Ran with them on the weekend and ended up with a swollen ankle, not the greatest experience i must say.

    • what size again..? and colourway..?

  • Recommendation is to try them in store before buying. These are tighter than other Nike shoes.
