Nike React Miler Review: The Nike React Miler may be a new addition to Nike’s React Foam line which incorporates the Nike Infinity Run and therefore the Nike Pegasus 37. This shoe may be a stability shoe, but it elegantly bridges the gap between neutral and stability shoes by providing just the proper amount of support to win a neutral runner over.
And it won run tester, Sam, over. Sam has been testing the Miler for the past few weeks and it’s become a favorite in her daily rotation. While it’s touted as an incredible long-distance shoe, Sam has also been using it for daily runs.
THE UPPER ON THE NIKE REACT MILER
The upper of the shoe is formed from a comparatively simple and thick material and maybe a bit stronger than most of Nike’s other new models. Personally, I might say this is often the sole negative thing about the shoe because the thicker material makes it slightly less breathable.
However, the stronger material, together with the strengthened lacing panels, helps to stay the foot in situ on the midsole. It provides for a more stable and secure feeling to run in. this is often great and can definitely negate the one negative thing about the shoe.
This is partly because of the increased sidewalls and the wide outsole, which is unlike most of Nike’s other models that tend to be quite narrow. The midsole of the React Miler is entirely made up of React foam, has a 10 mm drop, and is also the heaviest model in the React Foam series with its 300 grams (size 40).
The bigger weight, however, is not something you will notice once you start running in them. The name React Miler also suggests that this shoe is made for longer runs because of the shoe’s long-lasting and durable React foam, which provides great shock absorption. In order to make the shoe more durable and long-lasting, the shoe has some strong leather at the toe box.
The heel of the shoe is made from the experience and insight of hundreds of runners, which, as a result, means the heel hugs itself securely around your foot, when you are running. One of the best features of Nike React Miler is the fit of the shoe. The snug fit keeps your foot in place in an entirely new and improved way.
The shoe’s heel cap is made from a harder and more stable material, which keeps your heels in place and prevents them from ‘sliding out, which you are probably all too familiar with in other shoes – I certainly am. Also, the instep is made in a narrow and almost sock-like design and provides a really good, snug fit around the ankle for maximum support and comfort.
Overall, the React Miler gave an excellent running experience! My feet were cushioned, protected, and cozy if a touch was warm. It packs in technology over and above that of other shoes within the Nike shoe range. It doesn’t promise to interrupt speed PBS, but it does deliver on the promised trusted, dependable stability on an extended run. I’d go as far as saying the foremost comfortable end of the day I’ve ever done.
I feel the React foam will remain intact past the five-hundred-mile mark and keep its grip because of the high abrasion outsole. Looks wise it’s going to not be as sexy as other trainers, but I feel it’ll keep its looks longer thanks to the added extras on the upper.
