Nike brings its React foam technology to running

The one-piece foam uses no cement or glue.
Nike Epic React Flyknit Running

Nike is transitioning its React foam technology into a new running shoe called the Epic React Flyknit Running. A one-piece Flyknit bootie sits atop a React foam layer that is softer than traditional EVA options with a midsole that extends beyond the upper to optimize cushioning and stability. The pattern on the foam isn't just for design either, the pattern gets deeper and shallower as the deeper segments enhance cushioning while the shallower segments are much firmer. 

The Nike Epic React Flyknit will be available on February 22nd at and select retailers.
