Nike unveils the newest iteration of the signature Epic React Flyknit 2 running sneaker with a tonal update designed with inspiration drawn from its Cortez sneaker. The uppers are adorned in the recognizable blend of red, white, and blue. The uppers boast a construction of soft Flyknit materials, which are crafted to be perfectly form fitting to deliver comfort.

The brighter colors of red and blue are showcased on the React midsole in blue and the Swoosh in red. There is also the addition of the Blue Ribbon Sports Track Club branding on the heel stripe in order to nod to its humble upbringing. The newest version of the Epic React Flyknit 2 sneakers is set to launch online at Nike and at select retailers beginning May 23rd.
