Fit is True To Size TTS, but fits snug ***UPDATE - I would go up .5 for casual wear for more room***. very soft, cloud like! not as responsive as ultra boost to me. very soft, but not as cloud like as Zoom X to me. For $150 these are great! Much softer than Lunarlon and adidas Bounce. Much lighter than Boost and Bounce. These are more comfy than Vapormax imo. Full review to come!

COMFORT THAT KEEPS KICKING The Nike Epic React Flyknit Men's Running Shoe provides crazy comfort that lasts as long as you can run. Its Nike React foam cushioning is responsive yet lightweight, durable yet soft. This attraction of opposites creates a sensation that not only enhances the feeling of moving forward, but makes running feel fun, too. Ridiculously Responsive Nike React feels incredibly bouncy. As your foot lands, the foam responds to the impact of your step by snapping back. The more energy you put into your step, the more energy you get in return. Compared to the similarly soft Nike Lunarlon cushioning, you get 13% more energy return with React. Feels Like the First Run The foam outsole shows the hard work and wear of many miles, yet it resists compression and keeps its shape. Based on testing with champion runners like Galen Rupp, the shoe's cushioning still feels like new after roughly 300 miles. It's like you get that exciting, out-of-the-box experience with every run. Give Your Feet a Hug Flyknit material conforms to the shape of your foot, creating a snug, hug-like feel. With the bootie-style construction, the tongue is seamlessly part of the upper. This eliminates the pressure a traditional tongue puts on the top of your foot. Combined with the bouncy-soft feeling of React underfoot, it's like you're wearing slippers on a mattress. Optimized Traction To keep the shoe as light as possible, traction is placed only where critical. Based on data, rubber sections on the toe and heel help you grip the ground and push off. More Details Heel shelf stabilizes the back of your foot to help keep your heel from rocking as your foot lands Synthetic suede heel lining helps prevent slippage and blisters Weight: 9.6 ounces/272 grams (men's size 10) Offset:10mm Shown: College Navy/Racer Blue/Pink Blast/College Navy Style: AQ0067-400 Flyknit Origins Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock. Nike embarked on a four-year mission with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper. This unprecedented precision maximizes performance while reducing the material waste of traditional cut and sew by an average of 60%. The equivalent of six recycled plastic bottles are used in every pair of Flyknit shoes, saving millions of pounds of material from reaching landfills.

Hey! For those wondering, YES this react foam is the same as the React foam in the Basketball shoes, however it was encased in those models, in the Epic React Flyknit it is uncaged, and just react for the midsole. Which is again different than Lunarlon since that is encased as well. hope that helps clarify!
Kenneth Gingco (5 months ago)
They encase the react in basketball shoes for responsiveness
The Dolphin (10 months ago)
How’s sizing?
tommaso99 (10 months ago)
hey mate, any idea if they wil be releasing that simple grey/white colourway?
Vito LoPiccolo (4 months ago)
Hey Hes Kicks, You said you were going to test the Nike Epic React Flyknit in Disney World. I don’t know if you did, but if you did, how was the comfort of the shoe for Disney World? I have a pair and I’m looking to wear them in September for Disney World. Also bought the Zoom Pegasus 35 Turbo because of you haha. Keep it up man!
Hes Kicks (4 months ago)
I did, i never did my top sneakers for vacation vid i kept putting it off! they were excellent! but if i could i would do the Pegasus Turbo personally one of my favs ever!

STI JOE (10 months ago)
they look like a wannabe ultra boost. has healcup. what a joke
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
but.... boost looks like a wanna be Nike Presto
Kai Zen (10 months ago)
Harrison is so cute
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
haha thanks!

They look comfortable, but not as nice looking as Ultra Boost

Great quick review Hes, looking forward to the full review later on. Hope you and the family enjoy Disney World!
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
thx!
justin747 (10 months ago)
Hes Kicks always keeps it real. He always gives pros and cons. A lot of the early reviews for these feel like paid ads from Nike.
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
definitely try to keep it honest! but im not mad at dudes if they are getting paid lol just need to have better clarity in this market IMO so we all know
Ray Dargis (10 months ago)
I think aesthetically they look amazing , I'm super excited about this shoe and I'm really interested to see these shoes in hand and get them on foot , that colorway is 🔥
Michael Zimmerman (10 months ago)
love your channel! love your realness!!! your son is the bomb!!!1

Describing the comfort as stepping on clouds sounds nice, but I never met anyone who has actually walked on clouds lol

Wish it was kids size...
Uli Peterson (10 months ago)
some people say, that these are a Ultraboost-knockoff. but i dont care, i think they look really cool, especially in this colourway.
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
others will say the Ultra Boost was a rip off the Nike Presto, either way i like all 3 models!
Mitchell Wittler (10 months ago)
Nike needs to put the react sole on a slide
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
yes!
Ben grift (10 months ago)
You have a beatiful son man, keep up the good vids
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
thanks man!
Rabarberellum 101 (10 months ago)
I think the 4% is unofficially banned from athletic competition. The carbon jump plate is too much of an artificial enhancement for runners. I think nike knows that the IAAF etc think like that and that's why you won't see them often. It's like mechanical doping.
Juk Jones (10 months ago)
That wolf grey pair is icy! I’m definitely going to give them a try, since the fit of the vapormax didn’t work for me 😢
G Family (10 months ago)
thanks for the feed back. love the content
I Bleed Red&Gold (10 months ago)
Great vid always cool to see your boy in the vids, future sneakerhead for sure lol. I just wanted to say thanks for doing these because it will let me know when and if hey ever will be better tech then boost but it is just hard. I have only found myself buying boost, nothing else come close really. Its like buying ground beef when steak is there for the taking, easy choice unless your a vegetarian or vegan lol.
I Bleed Red&Gold (10 months ago)
Hes Kicks yup now no one can afford to stay stale and must keep striving to be better and that includes adidas. Boost is best now but for how long and will they be the ones to beat boost? I am really looking forward to the futurecraft 4d’s
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
thanks for watching! and agreed, boost is the pinnacle right now, its great that companies are stepping up the tech!
Andres Miranda (10 months ago)
So heres the question what shoes do you take for a few days of vacay! Thanks fir the vids keep un the freat reviews
Andres Miranda (10 months ago)
AND TNX FOR TGE QUICK REPLY MAN!
Andres Miranda (10 months ago)
Great idea
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
That is actually a Top 5 vid I plan on doing in a couple weeks! I wanted to get these first to see if they would be included
Andres Miranda (10 months ago)
Why not a rubber sole on the bottom though!!???
Rafael Morales (10 months ago)
Hes, your background in the kick worid? Did you work for Nike before? And second question, are kicks more in abundance out there in your opinion compared to the rest of the country,? specifically Nike
thejuice32 (10 months ago)
Have fun at Disneyland. Thanks for the review. Good to know if I want to keep these on my radar or not.
Fureddo28 (10 months ago)
Your son is so cute!😅 Sorry to ruin the mood, but man these kicks are bland to say the least. What a boring and so uninspired design! And the midsole aspect taking its cues from Boost... definitely pass on these.
Steeze S (10 months ago)
Hes, how’s sizing on these? Tts ?
Steeze S (10 months ago)
Hes Kicks cool thx!
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
Steeze S i would say yeah!

Paul Rodrigues (10 months ago)
Yo going to Disney Work! Thats my neck of the woods. Check out trophy room in Disney Springs I think you will really appreciate it.
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
Paul Rodrigues I will!
bellabugs (10 months ago)
Wouldn’t mind getting these shoes on sale. But boost will always be my main shoe sole because no matter how long I wear it. My feet never hurt. They are great work shoes and the only shoes I wear if I’m going walk or stand for long periods of time. I haven’t felt feet pain in a long time lol. If these shoes can make feet pain disappear then I’ll buy one for sure. Vapormax still has some feet pain. And haven’t tried the vaporfly either.
fred g (10 months ago)
He has his mama eyes. My boy is 2 year old soon, but haven;t start speaking :)
NeonBlkRager (10 months ago)
Idk mimics boost but looks like adidas bounce
Jank Paul (10 months ago)
These are essentially Nikes Ultraboosts as of now. Silhouette, knit, and soft sole.
RJ Steinke (10 months ago)
Yea I didn't realize that, i didn't think about that at all, yea no definetly not really good observation
kenneth tong (10 months ago)
Can’t believe no one hasn’t pointed that out yet
The Flying Dutchman (10 months ago)
This is it right here. This is the colorway I gotta get
DAV (10 months ago)
Check out the review for this shoe on my channel I have the grey and the navy colorway, I also compare it to boost and bounce 👌🏽

Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
MySTiK ha. No
face708 (10 months ago)
Y'all heard it first from HES , thanks for breaking the curse. Thanks for always being different.

They are kinda ugly
christian quiroz (10 months ago)
Those are fire b !
DJ Ansari (10 months ago)
Zoom X w a different upper would be amazing. Love the 4% as a casual wear but the shoe really is not appealing. Also prime knit is way better than fly knit for lifestyle. Prime knit might be dangerous on 4% mid sole tho.
Ryan Bodiford (10 months ago)
Like for Harrison
CA Cloud Kicker (10 months ago)
Youre the best dude. Good to see you doing well. Always a pleasure stopping by 🤙
Hector De La Cruz (10 months ago)
So what exactly is gonna differentiate the Zoomfly and React? Aren't they both trying to appeal to the same general consumer, as in the guys that want the best cushion (Lunarlon, Boost, Zoom, Fresh Foam, etc.)? Not sure what to cop anymore, definitely want a Nike shoe with cushion that's comparable to boost.
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
very very good question. both are good options and they are the same price point. Ill have more info as I wear them more for a comparison, but it will boil down to personal preference
nssh13 (10 months ago)
Would you go with same size as ultra boost 3.0?
sickkicks4days 13 (10 months ago)
Damn i need a plug to get these early. I need to stunt on my co workers
Mario luis Bonoan (10 months ago)
Should have been around $130. Not $150. Just $10 more than Pegasus series
DFresh (10 months ago)
How did you get these early +Hes Kicks
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
I had a very helpful person reach out to me on social... he the real MVP!

Thoughts on sizing?

TTS
Nick Pagan (10 months ago)
I just don't think they look good 🤷‍♂️
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
I dont like them as much on feet honestly the tongue needs to be out more, just my opinion, but all in all i like em!
ahastar1141 (10 months ago)
Man idk what to do. I really want the grey pair but idk if I can wait for it to drop. Might have to grab 2 paies
Victor Murillo (10 months ago)
Did you ever do a review on those triple black Zoom Flys?
Victor Murillo (10 months ago)
Daniel Flores Nah I’m a 9.5-10 dude
Daniel Flores (10 months ago)
Victor Murillo If you’re a size 10.5 I’m selling my Zoom Fly’s in the same all black colorway. Brand new in box. Let me know if you’re interested in pictures or anything. Thanks!
Luis Reyes (10 months ago)
The glueing is very cheap on triple blacks compared to other colorways probably an issue on pushing out the release
Victor Murillo (10 months ago)
Hes Kicks That would be cool, I just think they’re really clean in that colorway. Might pick them up eventually but I’d like to see them more.
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
no i did an unboxing, but i didnt realize they were do different from the SPs, i can do one soon if you want
Nursefoodie threesixty (10 months ago)
Gotta give them a try!
Aaron Podgorsky (10 months ago)
vids with the kid are highkey getting annoying, here to see you review shoes not this shit
duhFlash (10 months ago)
Aaron Podgorsky please don't breed
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
you want to babysit then? ... I wouldnt trust him with you since you are unfit for responsibilities like that. dont like the fam? dont watch the channel. problem solved.
Aaron Podgorsky (10 months ago)
Occasionally? He's in every damn video
ahastar1141 (10 months ago)
Aaron Podgorsky that’s pretty disrespectful dude. He’s a regular guy and a family man. You really expect not to see his son occasionally?
I don't see how this looks like ultra boost😐 just because it has the heel cup, people say it's a copy....
Lucky A (10 months ago)
Totally cute kid!!
David Kvasyuk (10 months ago)
They will last a long time, and they will stay comfortable for a long time. The react doesn’t look as bad as boost when it ages
Brady Loughner (10 months ago)
You mentioned “cloud like” multiple times throughout the video, could you draw comparison to adidas “cloudfoam”? Are your recommending going true to size on these? Ps: Harrison is so dope!
Hes Kicks (10 months ago)
not like cloudfoam shoes, but oddly close to the sandals now that you mention it!
Robert Sacco (10 months ago)
FreeFlyknit+LunarEpic=EpicReact? 🤔 Enjoy DisneyWorld!

Geis25 (10 months ago)
Been waiting for this video!!! Props Hes. I can’t wait to try these I’m just hoping they’re at least close to boost comfort.
lplt (10 months ago)
might not be the only sneaker channel i follow, but definitely the only one i hit that bell on! glad you mentioned all three other shoes i was thinking of comparing comfort with
I T (10 months ago)
Definitely like this colorway better than the 2 releasing. Is there a drop date for this colorway?
