The low-top Nike EXP-X14 SE is available in US men’s and women’s sizes. Males can get a pair from 6 to 15 while females can order theirs from 5 to 12. Some have attested that it fits true to size. This model has a textile and synthetic upper that offers a breathable and light wear. The Flywire cables hug the foot for a snug wear.
The running-inspired EXP-X14 SE features a design that could be best described as futuristic. It has a semi-transparent upper that consists of textile and synthetic materials with Flywire cables and distinct brandings. Nike's catchphrase, "Just Do It," is prominently featured diagonally on the lateral sides while dash patterns are all across the upper. Also, the N3546 is slightly visible on the sides as well, adding more distinction and curiosity from anyone who isn't familiar with its significance.
The React foam tech on its midsole delivers optimal and springy cushioning, which is one of the latest techs that Nike is proud to present.
Nike takes pride in its uncanny ability for style and innovation. Released in June 2018, The Nike EXP-X14 SE embodies the brand's history and pushes the limitations of lifestyle footwear through the use of bold brandings and semi-transparent design details. Its designers took the extra mile design-wise when conceptualizing this sneaker.
Its name is a collection of references. The EXP stands for “experiment,” which was the operative word on how the brand’s sportswear designers converted the performance features of the React running shoes into this lifestyle edition footwear. X14 was the prototype codename for the Nike React tech, which is used on this shoe’s midsole for cushioning.
On its medial sides, the N3546 detail represents Steve “Pre” Prefontaine’s fastest record in the 1972 Olympics (3 mins and 54.6 secs). This is Nike’s way to pay homage to its rich history in the sport of running. The semi-transparent upper is a modern take on a 90s running shoe, the Nike Zoom Drive.
Other examples of shoes under the React series are Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit and Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% which are obviously all recipients of the React cushioning tech. The React is defined by Nike as 11% softer and 5% lighter than its predecessor tech, the Lunarlon. Before it was debuted, the running sneaker Nike Epic React Flyknit has been tested comprehensively for 17,000 miles.
- The popular color variants for the Nike EXP-X14 SE are White/Total Orange/Black/Wolf Grey and Black/White/Cool Grey/Total Orange.
