Unbeatable grip of the Vapor 2

"Great grip even in wet conditions," - many golfers highlight this shoe's ability to bite the course quite efficiently, no matter the weather.

Spiked shoes continue to hold the reputation for providing an unbeatable grip on the ground. The bottom of the shoe is equipped with seven removable CHAMP PiviX cleats that are locked into a CHAMP SLIM-Lok.

The fin-like spikes deliver unsurpassable traction with a simple replacement system. The visible "C" on each nub serves as an indication that it is time for a change.

Hybrid outsole

The outsole of the Nike React Vapor 2 features a hybrid outsole. Working side-by-side with the spikes is the Articulated Traction. It further boosts traction and gives an enhanced ground feel on different surfaces.

Here are just a few of the comments golfers had about the Vapor 2's comfort:

Deemed a success, the responsive foam also jumped on different sports arenas that could make use of its high energy return feature. Now that it is dominating this Nike golf shoe, golfers can highly benefit from it no matter how powerful the driver swing is. Some avid golfers note how easy the React makes the shoe on your feet out on the course.

Superior interior

The insides of the shoe are placed with a dual-density sockliner. This design is carefully planned because it gives a plush and comfortable feel to provide lasting comfort throughout the game.

NikeSkin keeps the moisture out

The synthetic upper of the React Vapor 2 is coated with a thin polyurethane film that is treated with All Conditions Control, which makes it suited for both wet and dry conditions.

This technology, called the NikeSkin, keeps the overall weight of the shoe because it removes unnecessary materials. Often, the innovation is compared with the football shoe tech Hyperfuse. React, however, is thinner and more flexible. 

Durable yet lightweight React Vapor 2

Keeping the foot locked is essential in every type of footwear. From afar, the trainer looks like a traditional lace-up kick. Digging deeper, it reveals the use of Flywire.

The innovation keeps everything secured by using durable yet lightweight Vectran filaments, which are all strategically placed to give flexibility, stability, and secured fit.

Albeit used in golf shoes nowadays, Flywire fans would be delighted to know that it is also present in other performance-based shoes like tennis, training, and running.

Stable and prevents unnecessary slips

The heel counter of this latest Vapor React footwear is embedded with a thermoplastic urethane material that keeps the feet stable and free from unnecessary slips: "ultra stable when cranking up the swing speed."

Golfers were surprised by how this light shoe delivers the necessary level of stability, saying that it's "pretty lightweight for spikes."

Aesthetically appealing

The Nike React Vapor 2 goes all out in both fashion and function. Wrapped in a sporty silhouette, this low-top profiled trainer exhibits different textures that add riveting accents to the whole aura of the shoe.

The blend of Nikeskin and synthetic leather, divided by subtle zigzag lines breaks the monotony of the monochromatic shoe. The Swoosh on the sidewalls grabs attention because of its seemingly embossed pattern. Overall, the style of this spiked trainer is minimal, but each detail effortlessly draws the eye in.
