Higher foam stack heights provide a softer feel. A wider shape provides a more stable ride, helping release energy with every step.
The shape of the Nike React foam midsole provides support for the 3 phases of a runner’s stride. It helps create flexibility at toe-off, a smooth ride at mid-stance and cushioning at contact.
Less material in the shoe means you’re closer to the foam, creating a softer, more responsive experience.
Increased rubber at the outsole helps deliver traction and durability.
