An Epic Evolution: Nike Unveils Its First-Ever Laceless React Runner

The latest from Nike boasts of a more dynamic fit, as it features a breathable Flyknit upper that takes comfort and performance to another level.

Sock-like—this is how runners describe the Nike Epic React. Since 2018, many have praised the shoe for its exceptional performance and style. However, Nike product designers have noticed that some runners opt to remove the laces for an even more sock-life feel and a minimalist aesthetic. The designers didn’t just watch, though. They went to work and created the first-ever laceless version of their premier running shoe: The Nike Phantom Epic React Flyknit.

The latest from Nike boasts of a more dynamic fit, as it features a breathable Flyknit upper that takes comfort and performance to another level. Elastic Flyknit yarns by the tongue and along the collar provide a snug fit that moves seamlessly with the foot. Non-elastic yarns, which replace traditional lace hooks, offer structure and stability. With the slip-on design and the Flyknit construction that lock your feet comfortably and securely in place, you won’t have to worry about anything else other than getting your miles.

Retaining the same cushioning of the Epic React, the Nike Phantom React delivers a softness and responsiveness that remain lightweight and capable of withstanding the wear and tear of daily running. It’s also 5% lighter, 11% softer, and 13% more responsive than the Nike LunarEpic Low Flyknit 2. The “Phantom” in its name isn’t for nothing—it’s called as such because the shoe gives the feeling that it “disappears” when you run.

Augment your sneaker rotation with the Nike Phantom Epic React Flyknit, which is great for both running and lifestyle wear. It comes in different colorways and in men’s and women’s sizes. The Nike Phantom Epic React Flyknit (P7,654 SRP) is available at these stores:
