Nike React Miler 2 will eat up your daily miles

This daily running shoe from Nike is meant for going slow but steady. Be it for a marathon training, a healthier lifestyle, or simply the joy of it.

The Nike React Miler is not your lightweight speedster but it can go a long distance and serve you for hundreds of miles.

Nike React Miler 2 vs. 1: minor changes

Following its well-received predecessor, the React Miler 2 keeps all the essentials that the runners loved. But it did make a few tweaks in the upper.

What stayed the same:

  • Stable platform: The flared heel with a stiff TPU piece around the heel add some stability to this otherwise neutral shoe.
  • Plush cushioning: It uses the same full-length Nike React midsole, highly regarded for its soft and responsive properties.
  • Durable outsole: The rubber material and its pattern are carried over, promising the same 500-mile durability of the first Miler.

What’s new:

  • Engineered mesh: An attempt to improve ventilation.
  • Bands in the midfoot: Four bands instead of two aim to tighten up support on the sides.

Good to know

The Nike React Miler 2 has reflective elements on the laces and heels to keep you visible in low-light conditions.
