Tech Talk: Introducing Nike React Cushioning

Nike is all about innovation, evolution, and refinement. Good is never good enough. Athletes are always striving for greatness, and Nike is constantly working to equip athletes with the tools they need to be at their best.

Nike React is part of Nike’s cushioning revolution. Creating foam that is lightweight, resilient, and durable is a tough task. Nike teams utilized cushioning experts and chemical engineers to develop Nike React, their latest innovation and a huge breakthrough in performance shoes.

Nike React 1

The game of basketball demands versatile cushioning. Top athletes need cushioning that works as they change directions, stop-and-go, and jump all game long. Nike React endured more than 2,000 hours of basketball testing to ensure the ideal combination of a soft and springy feel without sacrificing stability and durability.

Nike React delivers more energy return than any other Nike basketball foam, providing swift reaction, plenty of bounce back, and a consistent feel.

Nike React 2

Nike React will first be utilized in the Jordan Super.Fly 2017 and the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017, which will both be available on 8/3. Each shoe will feature a fully encased full-length Nike React core for the ultimate on-court experience.
