WOMEN'S EPIC PHANTOM REACT FLYKNIT
Don’t be led astray by its ominous name, the Epic Phantom React Flynit isn’t some subversive all-black sneaker marketed toward counterculture’s high court of hipsterdom—in fact it’s far from it.
While you’ve already heard of “React” and the cutting-edge cushioning technology that provides brilliant bounce back and energy return, the intriguing use of “phantom” in Nike’s new nomenclature actually refers to the shoe’s lack of laces-- and the fact that it’s so comfortable you’ll hardly know it’s attached to your foot.
The tried-and-true Flyknit upper remains the shoe’s most important feature. Without laces, the tongue and heel loops help stretch the space age material to create a roomy point of entry for an effortless in and out while the tight-knit toe and midfoot provide the supportive hug you need to stay locked in. Think of this as a supportive sock mounted on cloudlike cushioning.
This neon green colorway further brightens up the shoe’s sinister name and adds extra flair to an already remarkable sneaker.
