Nike React Infinity Run

RUNNING SHOES

$239

The Nike React Infinity Run features Nike's proprietary React foam, said to offer superior cushioning and energy return. It also incorporates the best of the label's Zoom Vaporfly 4% racing shoes, which have prompted calls for their ban in official races due to the speed advantage they provide.

The result is a pair of soft and responsive running shoes with a wide midsole. Its geometry and rocker-like bottom are said to offer a fluid transition from foot strike to toe-off, while reducing the chance of running injuries.
