We React to Nike’s React Cushioning: Is It a Game-Changer?
« on: January 25, 2018, 08:54:28 AM GMT GMT »
Nike’s latest cushioning technology, nike air max 97 mens uk sale is finally here, and with it comes the first foam cushioning of its kind to be implemented in a running shoe.

Designed to soften the impact of each stride, the newly unveiled Nike Epic React Flyknit sneaker was constructed with flexibility and breathability in mind. With a newly extended midsole beyond the upper that sits directly atop the foam, runners can now expect more cushioning and more traction when active.

“The nike air max 90 womens sale cheap theme of this is what we’ve heard from runners,” React sole designer Brett Schoolmeester tells us. “They want everything. They don’t want to sacrifice anything. Lunar was incredibly lightweight, and it was very soft. So we really needed to maintain those, but how do we add energy return into it?”

The React sole maintains the lightweight appeal of Nike’s Lunarlon technology, with added responsiveness and cushioning for more bounce. That makes it more than a formidable opponent for its biggest competition: adidas Boost.

“We’re about 30% lighter than Boost,” says Schoolmeester. “The cheap nike air max 1 mens trainers about lightweight is it never goes out of fashion. That is something that athletes always want.”

To get a better understanding of an athletes perspective on Nike’s new innovation, we spoke with four-time gold medalist and eight-time world champion Michael Johnson, who is widely celebrated as one of history’s finest sprinters of all time. Johnson also consulted on the design of the shoes.

“I need comfort so that I can actually go the distance, and React does that,” Johnson claims. “It’s fantastic in terms of the nike air max thea white womens sale. At my age as well, and getting older, I need support so that I can minimize the risk of injury. Those two things are crucial for me.”

Johnson famously helped design a pair of gold spikes that he wore during the 1996 Olympics, a suggestion he made to then-designer Tobie Hatfield. He ended up winning the matching medal, too. But beyond top-of-the-line athletes who demand pure performance, he sees a benefit for the more casual runner.
