Nike React

Responsive. Durable. Soft. Lightweight.

"Historically, cushioning innovations might deliver big leaps in one or maybe two aspects of performance", says Nike's Ernest Kim, Advanced Director, Global Running Footwear. "But with Nike React, we see significant advancements in all dimensions of cushioning: impact attenuation, energy return, lightweight and durability. That's why we call it our most complete foam ever."

When Nike released its first shoe with the new React foam in June 2017 a groundbreaking revolution began to run its course. Originally constructed to help reaching the goal of reducing running-related injuries, the React technology has meanwhile taken over the lifestyle-orientated sneaker game as well.
