Nike React Infinity Run Performance Review

70% of the runners suffer from running injuries, not mention to the professional runners, the injuries can even prevent them to keep running. So NIKE aimed at reducing the running injuries.

Finally, NIKE released the new running shoes Nike React Infinity Run. What about the actual performance of Nike React Infinity Run? Let’s have a look at it today.

Three major improvements:

For sportsman, the sporting injuries is a hard hit. A runner without the sports injuries is Nike’s greatest dream.

One way to control gait is to control foot pronation. Long-term overpronation or underpronation may cause running obstacles and harm the human health.

NIKE improve the cushion performance to reduce the impact injury. It develops React foam, widen insole and ‘geometry rocker’ design.

  1. React foam

Nike React Infinity Run uses full-length React foam insole technology to increase buffer. It has excellent compliance, and it’s also very stable. The Nike React technology satisfy the runners’ request-Light, Soft, Elastic and Durable.

Nike Epic React Flyknit

Normally the foam can’t have both softness and durability. But NIKE React is different.  It mixes the TPE and EVA material, so it can keep the steadiness and softness.

React form are used in basketball shoes, running shoes, golf shoes and training sneakers.

  1. Stability

It increases the insole for better cushioning. Comparing with NIKE Epic React Flyknit 2,Infinity Run adds extra 24% React foam and increases the insole to suitable width to bear more foam support and increase the stability.

As the insole is widen and thickened, the overall performance of the running shoes is improved. So it also increases the weight.

The forefoot sole of Nike React Infinity Run (right one) is wider than Nike Epic React Flyknit (left one).

The outsole which connects with ground is rubber and it has hollow-out design, which improves the durability and reduces the weight.

It’s quite light when running and it’s also stable.

  1. Rocker Geometry

Nike React Infinity Run uses the similar outsole design as Zoom Vaporfly 4%. The insole is Rocker Geometry type.

It’s very stable when running. It can reduce the running injuries.

NIKE cooperated with BCSMRF to conduct a test, 226 runners wore Nike React Infinity Run and Nike Structure 22 shoes for a 12-week training program.

The result shows that the runners wearing Nike React Infinity Run were 52% less likely to be injured than runners wearing Nike Structure 22 running shoes. Meanwhile, runners wearing the NIKE React Infinity Run felt less pain in their knees and feet.

The vamp of NIKE React Infinity Run uses new Flyknit Loft knitted way. It has different knitting strength in different part of foot. The shoe tongue is integrated type, it’s easy to put on and take off. And it uses engineering fiber, which is lighter and has higher strength. It has better durability and friction, and it also improves the air permeability.

The air permeability is good. My feet haven’t felt hot when running.

We tested is women model. The main colorway is white and the grey line draws the outline of Nike Swoosh logo, it also decorates with coral on the shoe heel. The insole is white and light blue.

The TPU stabilizing plate is extending from shoe heel to the middle part and outboard, it improves the stability when running.

Nike React Infinity Run is not only suitable for professional athlete, but also a good choice for the running enthusiast for jogging and long-distance running training. A nice pair of running shoes will improve your sport performance and reduce the risk of injury.

And the vamp of forefoot is thinner, but it has abundant knitted grains and separated layers. It has good air permeability and can it can keep the stability of forefoot. The supporting performance is good.

Normally, the unit weight of the running shoes will be heavy with thick cushioning material. But this pair of Nike React Infinity Run is light.

The unit weight of US11=EUR45 Nike React Infinity Run is only about 300g (left shoe is 308g, right shoe is 305g). As a pair of running shoes whose location is for good stability and excellent cushion performance, it’s quite light.
