The much anticipated latest innovative running shoe is here! Today, on February 22, 2018, Nike launched the Nike React- A shoe that is 11% softer and 13 % bouncier than anything we’re ever seen the Swoosh drop before!
In celebration of the launch of the Epic React, Nike SF held a Train & Trial session for the Nike+ Run Club Pacers.
We all gathered at the Ferry Building at 7am and took a ferry to our 4 mile route out to Sausalito.
At every mile, our Nike specialists, famously known as EKINs (because they know the product forwards and backwards), taught us some facts about what makes the shoes breathable, lightweight, durable and flexible.
Even during Brunch!
On the ferry ride back to SF we played a cards against humanity style game that was React themed, and partook in a video with the word that best describes how we felt in the shoes.
Of course I said “Yee” to rep the bay! 😉
We’ve never seen anything like this from Nike, and having run in almost every “new” shoe, this is the one to get your hands on for the long run. So far the shoe comes in 5 different color ways ( blue,white, 2 black color ways, and grey) Hopefully you can cop a pair before they sell out!
