Nike’s newest release will send you running to get one ASAP Eunice Isobel Lee January 17, 2020 Features Nike will soon release its newest running shoe, aimed at reducing runner injuries—the Nike React Infinity Run. Back in 2017, the brand debuted the Zoom Vaporfly 4% that was built for notching PRs and breaking limits. The same year, Nike React, a proprietary foam offering game-changing cushioning and energy return was also debuted. In running, the technology answered for a near impossible desire: A feel that was soft, resilient, lightweight and durable. The Nike React Infinity Run encompasses the best qualities of those two technologies—a fine-tuned blend of biomechanical efficiency and cushioning—for a breakthrough shoe that offers a more democratic solution to stability, and an advance from traditional motion-control designs. The Infinity Run provides a soft, responsive platform and delivers it with a widened midsole. Similar to the geometry of the 4%, the Infinity has a rocker-like bottom that yields a more fluid transition from foot strike to toe off. This inspired combination has an instant impact on a runner. The shoe feels stable and energetic, with the spring in the React foam ready to fuel miles. The Infinity’s rocker-geometry encourages a slight lean forward, moving a runner’s foot strike from heel to midfoot, or even forefoot; this creates a natural forward feel of propulsion. The wider platform, and the supportive foam that accompanies it, provides a reassuring feel—the shoe gently guides the foot in a smooth, straight line, reducing side-to-side wobbling and movement. The Nike React Infinity Run is ideal for the kind of runs that don’t fall into the silo of interval or tempo, long run or race. This shoe matches best to base-run days, those middle-mileage, moderate efforts. The Nike React Infinity Run will retail for P8,095 and will be exclusively available this January 23 for Nike Members at the Nike Park Mall Of Asia opening. It will be available for retail on January 30, 2020.
