Slip on the Nike Phantom React Flyknit to experience its dynamic sock-like fit that reacts and supports your every stride.
Shoelaces have been around since 3500 BC and it’s about time they get replaced by something better and cooler! Nike has been working on giving them an upgrade, and where on one hand their team has devised the uber cool Electric Adaptable Reaction Lacing, which electronically adjusts the lacing, pressure and fit to the contours of your foot, on the other hand they’ve also launched the Nike Phantom React Flyknit that allows for a snug fit without the need of any laces!
The traditional lace hooks in Nike Phantom React Flyknit are replaced with Elastic Flyknit yarns along its tongue and collar. The Nike Phantom React Flyknit has a dynamic fit that allows the shoe to move seamlessly with the foot. The Lifespice team did go out to the Nike store (yes, they’re already available at your local Nike stores) to try out the shoe and we must say it provided a very snug and sock-like fit. The woven upper allows for great flexibility and no laces meant that we could just slip it on and were ready for a run in a jiffy!
The shoes are lightweight and offer great cushioning – a feature of the intelligent Nike React sole that powers this shoe. With this sole one can also expect great energy return and a smooth overall ride. The TPU heel piece helps in the heel-to-toe transition and to achieve better stability. Enhanced traction is realised via the durable rubber pods over the toe and heel. Thanks to the Flyknit, these shoes are more breathable as well.
In short, the Nike Phantom React Flyknit is a shoe that’s upping the game for all, replacing laces with yarns, offering full flexibility to the foot while maintaining stability and allowing for great traction. It’s available in some attractive shades as well for both men and women. Do drop a comment below once you’ve tried out these shoes!
