NikeCourt React Vapor NXT: shock-absorbing, stable, and durable  

NikeCourt React Vapor NXT Upper

Shifting point to point in seamless movement while enjoying a secure foothold is one of the winning attributes of the React Vapor NXT. This first tennis shoe, lodged with the pliable and cushy React foam, also banks a lot on durability. It’s packed with heavy-duty armor on the toe and medial sides, which delays any signs of wear during toe dragging and rallies.

Who should buy the NikeCourt React Vapor NXT

  • It's suitable for aggressive players who love to glide and drag their toes a lot up and down the court like the powerful Aryna Sabalenka. 
  • It is the best find for those who are looking for a shoe that has a modified herringbone tread that prevents slippage when scrambling towards the sides of the court and recovering from a shot.

What’s new with this Vapor shoe?

Soft cushioning. Instead of receiving the usual Zoom Air and Air Max cushioning systems found in the previous NikeCourt Vapor choices, this NXT shoe utilizes the React foam that's soft rather than stiff than its air bubble counterparts. The lateral edge is partly firmer than the medial side, so sideway movements, especially on the baseline, feel stable and secure. In terms of propulsion, the Zoom-infused ones like the Cage 4 offer better energy return.  

NikeCourt React Vapor NXT Midsole

Tough cover. It borrows the Flyweave concept initially used in basketball shoes, which helps shield the footgear from immediate wear. Nike's design team took cues from extremely long-lasting and reliable textiles used in the aerospace industry in formulating the Flyweave concept. So, when it comes to durability, you can expect this tech-packed hard-court shoe to deliver.

NikeCourt React Vapor NXT Outsole

Supportive and breathable shell. Flyweave, a technology introduced after coming up with the Flyknit innovation, is also made up of high-strength fibers. These 5mm threads are intricately woven, forming a supportive fabric that helps maximize the foot's natural motion while offering sufficient airflow.
