Nike Running is changing the game yet again with its latest innovation.

After the success of its Breaking2 release last year, Nike has reestablished its reputation as being the brand that pushes technology the furthest and the fastest – and their latest running shoe is another step towards excellence.

The Nike Epic React Flyknit – which was launched in London last week – is the first running shoe to be built on Nike's new proprietary foam technology which meets the needs of every runner without making any sacrifces. It's a shoe that offers more cushioning with each stride, more energy in each step and an incredibly lightweight silhouette that's remarkably durable.

The React foam has the potential to change the way athletes move in all sports, not just running, which is why boxers, footballers and sprinters all came together to unveil the shoe in London last week.

To get the lowdown on one of the most exciting releases we'll see from Nike this year, we spoke with Bret Schoolmeester, the Swoosh's senior director for global running footwear.
