Overview of this review
Size and fit
The low-top Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit is offered in US men’s sizes. Its hidden lacing enclosure and padded collars provide wearers a secure fit while the Flyknit upper delivers a comfortable and lightweight wear. Flyknit is beloved by most because of its exceptional sock-like fit but has sufficient durability to withstand strenuous foot movements.
Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit Style
Nike designed the React Vapor Street Flyknit mainly for function. However, due to its minimal but striking silhouette and modest color schemes, it can be considered street-worthy as well. Pair this sneaker with casual outfits like trousers, fitted jeans, or shorts and be low-key stylish during everyday tasks.
Showcasing Nike’s latest technology in cushioning, the React midsole delivers a light and soft response with each step. Its thicker construction allows for more bounce and compression. On its outsole, the rubber plate on the forefoot and heel section offers traction and durability.
Aside from its Flyknit construction, the perforations on the toebox and tongue make the React Vapor Street Flyknit more breathable.
Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit History
Introduced in 2018, the Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit boasts two of Nike’s trademark technologies: the React cushioning and the Flynit. Both of these innovations are part of Nike’s effort to deliver the most comfortable and supportive footwear on the market.
The Flyknit was launched in 2012 after a decade of development through the Flyknit Racer, a running shoe. Micro-engineering every stitch to produce a very light, formfitting and seamless upper is the essence of Flyknit. As expected, the technology has also been introduced to training, basketball, soccer, and lifestyle shoe releases. Today, the Flyknit is one of Nike’s most prominent components of its arsenal of trademark technology.
One of Nike’s latest technology, the Nike React is the pioneer of the foam cushioning to be applied in a running shoe. It is described as 11 percent softer and 5 percent lighter than its predecessor, the Lunarlon cushioning. Before the technology was introduced via the running shoe Nike Epic React Flyknit sneaker, it has been tested thoroughly by 17,000 miles worth. Nike is confident that the React cushioning is the most resilient, softest, and lightest foam it has ever made.
- Approximate weight for this shoe is 7.7 ounces.
- The large Swoosh branding on the lateral side of the sneaker extends to the midsole.
