When it comes to state of the art footwear, it’s often Nike’s React technology that comes to mind. Featuring across dozens of styles, this recent innovation delivers an unbeatable level of comfort.
It’s responsive and bouncy without sacrificing on that all important support. The tech was designed with the long distance runner in mind. But let’s face it, these are now a lifestyle staple. With so many styles in the range, there’s something for everyone whether you’re a gym fanatic or wannabe hype beast.
Here we list 9 of the best Nike React trainers, those which really should have sold out by now!
Of all the trainers on this list, the ‘Spati‘ is the only limited-edition style and one of the most recent launches. It’s hardly surprising that these are already being described as one of the best Epic React colourways of all time. That unique blue overlay across the heel instantly grabs attention not to mention the mini-Swoosh to the sidewall – a first for this legendary runner.
Pushing forward with even more Element 55 colourways, Nike unveils the most summer appropriate option yet. These bring just the right amount of colour with that volt Swoosh contrasting against muted uppers. Perfect for those lazy days at the park or a European getaway!
A brand-new addition to the Epic React range sees a grey coloured midsole against an entirely dark upper. The only contrast is that patent Swoosh to the sidewall. As always, that soft Flyknit keeps your foot securely locked in place.
Despite selling out across all UK and European stockists, you can still cop this high-top trainer via Offspring. It’s the techwear-inspired aesthetic that makes these so popular, and let’s not forget about those synthetic uppers. These are tough enough for the worst of the summer showers, easy to wipe clean and surprisingly lightweight.
One of several new colourways for this upgraded model which builds upon the Epic React OG. This time around, an embossed Swoosh features and all the heel counters opt for a translucent hue. Considered as Nike’s greatest running silhouette, these are not only a gym staple but a shoe that looks great paired with shorts.
Both styles from this pack recently restocked at Foot Locker. It’s great news for those of you who missed out. That taped branding couldn’t be more on trend and the premium hits of suede to the toe box give these a stylish finish. Choose from ‘White Red‘ or ‘Grey Red‘ but hurry as some sizes are already sold-out.
Another hugely popular colourway for this high-tech pack is still available via the UK stockist. Just like the React Element, a uniquely styled midsole features sticky pods. The look gets even more contemporary thanks to that asymmetrical lace surround.
Launched several months ago alongside a much larger collection to also feature the ‘Triple Black‘ colourway. This design is now virtually sold-out elsewhere including major stockists such as Nike and Offspring. Designed with a grid pattern, it’s one of the more unique and eye-catching React Element 55s.
